The Stick Is Always Greener

What do pups value? Food, certainly. Love and affection? Of course. But at least in my house, the answer also seems to be, “whatever the other dog has.”Rhodesian RIdgeback, blog, chicago, montrose dog beach, adventure

On a beach littered with countless sticks, Eko grabs one and takes flight

Inevitably Penny gives chase, desperate for the stick. Not any stick – that stick. Eko won’t give up the prize though, and eventually Penny digs up a stick of her own

At which point Eko discards his worthless twig…

And charges after Penny for her invaluable prize

Eko patiently stalks his prey…

Then pounces on the fallen bounty

Undeterred, Penny launches a diversionary strike

Then swipes the stick and the endless battle continues!

So why go through all the trouble of chasing, wrestling and battling for a stick when there are sticks aplenty?

My theory? Because it’s a lot more fun!
