White Dog spent the day cleaning up and reorganizing after Dragon's visit. He always takes TONS of stuff out of her toybox and drags all her chewies into the front room. He NEVER puts things back where he found them! This morning White Dog began the process by checking to make sure everything was still there; she counted her toys and chewies...oh oh a missing chewie! I cautioned her to look around carefully before accusing Dragon of stealing it and sure enough, the little guy had dragged hoof under the coffee table where it was hiding just out of White Dog's reach. Once all were accounted for, the chewies were placed back in the places they belonged: gigantic bone on her hearth rug, hoof in the couch cushions, stuffed beef bone on the bed, and old beef bone next to her chair in the bedroom. Stuffies were next as bunny went back on the hearth next to zebra and Star was placed on her bed blanket. She decided that Mono needed to be aired out to get rid of "Dragon Cooties" so she put him outside on the deck. Christmas Bear was left out for a fast game of tug and fetch with Steve at lunchtime. She asked and I helped her put all the toys pushed out of the box by Dragon to reach his fixations back inside. Satisfied that everything was back in its proper place, White Dog took one final survey, then curled up for a nap.
