Stanley does NOT play nice with Wilson. He tortures Wilson and makes him
squeak scream and he plays keep away from me. It is torture but if I tolerate it, he gets it out of his system and me and Wilson can play undisturbed by Stanley's antics.
Stanley really tries to antagonize me so I will try to take Wilson. BUTT I know if I do then Stanley will just run off and then I have to chase him - exactly what he wants!
So I usually just wait him out.
The thing I do not wait out is when I am trying to give Wilson to mom (so mom can throw him) and Stanley is getting in my beeswax, lurking RIGHT THERE, so he can quickly grab Wilson before mom gets a chance to get him.
When that happens I usually see what Stanley is up to and don't put Wilson down until I know it's safe. But sometimes Stanley is so persistent that I have to roar like a lion so he knows I mean business.
When I roar, Stanley listens.
