Costco has new Dog Toys (wooHOOO!). Bought Cassie and Ruby a lifetime supply of three stuffed, dog-proof (har har!) "Dragons." Very cute, these objects.
As we scribble, the two Mistresses of the Universe are having it out over the Blue Dragon. They're profoundly engaged in a tug-o'-war. Ruby has one end of the B.D. and Cassie the other. Ruby drags toward the far end of the hall, going wrrrlla wrrll wrrlllll! Cassie drags toward the end of the hall, going wrla wrrlla wrlll!
One dogs wrests the B.D. away. T'other dog grabs it and hauls it and the competing dog up the hallway.
Cassie, believing she has won (she does, after all, have a good five pounds on the still-puppyish Ruby), lies down on the floor with her four feet sticking out in four directions. She clings to B.D.
Ruby, also clinging to B.D., fiercely backs up, dragging Cassie up the hall across the tiles. Cassie slides about halfway up the 30-foot-long hall before Ruby gives up.
Wrrrla wooorla wrrrr wrrllllll wrrrr!
