Sanity is no fun! She simply ruins the "Ball Game" so dearly beloved by all the Applewoods dog pack! The "Ball Game" is when a dog brings a ball to a human, the human holds out its hand and the ball is put into its hand...the beloved ball is thrown and off go all the dogs running wildly and eagerly chasing the ball so they can bring it back to the human so the game can continue.
Enter Sanity...who refuses to play the "Ball Game" correctly and so stops the game completly. Last Friday afternoon....all the Applewoods dog pack were playing well together so I came outside to play the beloved "Ball Game" with the dogs. Everyone was having a ball (play on words here) and when Sanity came out....no one would play with her...as she ruins the game for everyone so now they ignore her.
So Sanity sat outside and wailed like a banshee for over 4 minutes just because no one who play with her. So what did Sanity do then? Why she sought to steal the ball away and tried to grab the ball away from Holly and then from Sugar. Well, Holly doesn't have the strength or backbone to hold onto the ball when Sanity is seeking to yank it from her..so she gave the ball up. But when Sugar got the ball....he refused to let go....and Sanity and Sugar spum round and round and round in a very tight, eerie quiet circle.
For over 8 minutes Sanity and Sugar kept up this eerie quiet circling - each refusing to give in to the other - and so they spun and spun and spun around. The other dogs watched...and even tried to get into the 'dueling dynamic'.... but the two dogs gave no credence to the 'other dog' just kept spinning and spinning and spinning. Ultimately, Sanity got the ball, the game stopped completly and all the dogs dispersed to various parts of the yard. Sanity - you are such a brat!
