White Dog, aka "The Trickster," suckered her brother several times on this April Fool's Day. Thank goodness he was a good sport because she was relentless. Quinn is fascinated by the fact that White Dog will drink out of a glass, daintily and neatly, but has been shy about asking to try for himself (or maybe his wider muzzle makes the tight fit uncomfortable). At breakfast White Dog drank her morning water as usual, making sure her brother saw all the gusto and delight of her "human" vessel. Then she hopped up on the chair and mimed slurping the contents of my unattended coffee mug...Quinn fell for it! As she coyly walked away he plunged his snout into the coffee and jumped back! "Hey, this isn't water," he gasped as she snickered.
Later, the two of them disappeared into the bedroom but I did not hear the dog door flap open. Two of them sharing the bedroom space? My spidey sense was tingling before I even heard the sound of things falling...There was Quinn front paws on the night stand pulling down the kleenex box (and everything in gravity's way) as White Dog directed the tissue theft. "Wasn't me, mom," she sweetly pointed her head at the "offender." When I scolded with a "Quinn MARIE!" White Dog quietly woofed "chump!" as she headed out of the door.
Moments ago, poor Quinn settled out on the deck finally finding a comfortable position in the afternoon sun. White Dog in the Living Room on her window perch started barking and raising a ruckus as if we were being invaded (pawing at the window, growling, perfect drama). Quinn came racing in to stand by her side to defend the house (and I went out as well) only to discover that the "terror alert" was for a woman pushing a baby stroller along the sidewalk! Again, White Dog laughed and calmly went behind the chair.
