Well, we long since had moved her bed back inside, of course. So, today she snuck the stick back into the house when I wasn't looking.
I look over and she's on her bed, attacking the stick. (Sorry about the blurry photo, but it was a swift and aggressive attack!)
|"You are MINE, evil stick!"|
Here's some video of her trying to get up her bravery to mount another attack.
You can see at one point, she comes to me for reinforcement. And what do I do? I send her back into the fray alone! What a terrible mother!
The video makes it look like Rita won, but that's cuz I cut it off too soon. In the end, the stick won, and Rita conceded that it could have the bed:
The stick is now resting comfortably in the bed, while Rita sleeps on the floor. We've changed the rule to "No CHEWING ON sticks in the house." Sticks that are merely sleeping (and/or basking in their victory) are allowed.
|Rita lets sleeping sticks lie.|
Thanks to everyone who is giving our wooly pups a home! So far we've sold all but the corgis!
