When I Roar

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.

That Stanley is a tease. Sometimes at the river, Roxy steals the ball, or just gets in the way to mess up the game. We think Stanley knows which of your buttons to push, Murph.

I think you should be nice to Wilson. He has been a loyal friend for a long time. I know you like to tease him a bit but do't hurt him.

Maybe you need to find a different Wilson for Stanley, maybe a different color too. But you are smart - you have his antics all figured out.

That's kind of mean of Stanley to kidnap your Wilson when you want to play with him.

You have to do what you have to do with a brother. Pierre and Bentley have to throw down every once in a while too.

One of my dogs would bring a bait and switch toy to get the one he really wanted. Maybe you could try that...
