Keeping an active, super-high-energy puppy busy and out of trouble on a rainy afternoon is no small feat! Ducky tends to play a bit too roughly for her older sisters, so they will only play with her for a short time. Mostly, it’s because Ducky has a case of “the mines”, meaning everything she sees is “Mine!” and she starts to growl and bark if she sees that Callie or Shadow has one of her toys. She may be playing with something else at that moment, but she still wants whatever toy they have….she “doesn’t play well with others” is what would be on her report card if Callie or Shadow were writing it. (Her friends at doggie day care like to play rough too,though, so they’d probably not be so critical of our little demon dog. (By the way, we now use the nickname “Demon Dog” with total affection.)
