Bowl Activity Revisited, but Wait Simon Wants In
Stinky continues to show much interest in the dog bowls and today she found them to be especially interesting. So again I pulled down the bowls for her to play with. This time I put a few chop sticks and a crab cracker in them. She was moving the chopsticks from bowl to bowl and inspecting the silver gadget that looked so foreign to her. This activity is so helpful while cooking because she can be in the kitchen and occupied by an activity. She would use the crab gadget to make noise on the metal bowl and preformed experiments comparing the weight of the different objects. Until .... Simon our dog became interested in the chopsticks. Now the tables have turned and she did not like that very much. She can go in their bowls but in no way must they come near hers. As soon as she made it clear to him that he was not to interfere, she went back to her work of exploring the world.
