Tale of the Nila Bones

Jake with a small piece of left over Nila bone

Ben with another Nila bone

Gracie with the third bone
I have a basket full of dog balls and toys in front of the fireplace. There are three Nila bones, or rather 3 pieces of what is left of Nila bones. My dogs ignore them, unless another dog comes over to play. I have no idea why, but if Dega and Ben visit (not together, that has not worked out yet), they will rummage in the basket until they find a bone.

The light bulb will then flash in Gracie and Jake's brains, and they rummage for the other two bones. The fun is now set to begin. Gracie wants the bone Jake has, and Jake wants what Dega or Ben has. Jake will lay in wait for Ben to pause chewing, then sneak in and snatch the bone. I take the bone Jake had and give it to Ben. Gracie will drop what she has and bark, allowing Jake to steal hers. Get the idea? The only one getting any type of workout is Mom. I continuously rotate the bones. This can go on for 30 minutes.

And then everyone goes to the yard to pee. Dogs. Ya gotta love them.
