I just gave out 3 nice new 12 inch bully sticks to 3 nice dogs. 1 each, right? Topper took his under the table to chew in peace, Ed left his to go and "dog" Topper and try and steal his. Meanwhile Nicky stole Ed's. We let Ed 'steal' the one Nicky had abandoned. Now Nicky went to 'dog' Topper, Ed grabbed hers again. I took it and tried to lure her away from Topper, she took it into the other room and left it, ran back to sit beside Topper and put her face next to his. The we repeated most of this adventure a couple of times. Ed left his to come and dog Nicky, who in turn is dogging Topper. …... 3 dogs, 3 bully sticks...only 1 dog actually gnawing away happily, 2 others grumbling and wanting the one they can't have.
Topper, pack leader, often won't even chew them the first day, lets the kids soften them and then gets serious when they are about half eaten. Tonight he is 'da boss, chewing like a king while his pack sits and drools.
Silly dogs, all they have to do is go into the other room and get the ones they left there.
