......the hard way.
Hi Everybuddy -
Sometimes life isn't always easy. Our newest pack addition - our bewootiful Shyla - has been pushing the envelope a bit with our Royal One......Meeka. I have to admit that Meeka has been pretty patient, giving her much more room for error than some of us who shall remain nameless. It appears as though Shyla has used up her "Get Out Of Jail Free" cards. So it happened. The Prince put the little gutsy one in her place. Meeka has a habit if claiming all the Nylabones in a 20 mile radius as his. We all know this and just don't even bother to take one if he's looking as though he's not in the mood to share. This is Rule #1:
Shyla not only tries to take them.....she does....and then barks at him! Oooooh! Mom has warned her and Meeka has yacked at her several times and then looks at Mom as if to say "Ummmm......somebuddy better tell her to read the manual!!". He said that because of Rule #2:
Last night his royalness sprang into action and let her have it. Unfortunately she let him have it back which of course didn't go over very well. They eventually stopped (with some strong encouragement from Mom and Dad) and amazingly enough, no one was worse for the wear. Mom was VERY relieved! I heard the commotion from all the way upstairs and ran downstairs to see what was going on. Shyla was shaking but I think she got the message. Dad caught these pictures of her while I comforted her. Mom said it was an "awwwwww!" moment. See:
"Is your ear still attached?"
"How bout your paw?"
"Is that paw okay too?"
"I'm so glad she's okay!!!"
We're hoping that Miss Shyla learned her lesson and is a bit more respectful now but in the meantime Mom and Dad are watching carefully. Just another day in the pack.
