In line with the nice weather round these parts, the climate is warm indoors as well as out.
Barney would like to play, but doesn’t quite have the hang of things yet, even when the treats inside are in plain view. See that little crack on the right half? That would be Bugs, having knocked the blessed thing down from the counter in one nano-instant when my back was turned. He does this. Losses include several glass bowls and one prized Quimper plate from my childhood.
If you want to see the exact attitude with which Bugs does this, check out this 2.5-minute incomparable video, about the difference between cats and dogs. Watch for the glass of milk. But I warn you. Do not be partaking of milk or any other liquid while you watch this, because it *will* end up coming out your nose.
Barney has no difficulty understanding how to work the Chip-N-Chirp. He crunches away at this in slow motion. Ruminating, I think.
Bugs’s technique is more refined. Applying judicious use of the tongue.
Even so, it’s pretty exhausting work.
It’s OK, Bugsy, you can rest.
