this is a tough question for Snowy when he wants them BOTH...

I really find it so interesting to observe animal interactions, the way they behave towards one another.

When I get the chance and time (and of course, the opportunity to see two or more animals), I watch them quietly and pay attention to their interaction. I sometimes just wish that I can understand their thoughts (from dogs, horses, guinea pigs, kitties, hamsters, monkeys, birds....you name it, I will enjoy watching them interact.). When I was a young child, I used to observe little ants in the garden :blush: i used to observe many pick tiny pieces of food(I think), walk, walk, walk (lots of walking steps and time they take just to reach their nearby home (a little hole in the ground). Once, will never forget this, while I was observing one ant, I saw it used to have difficulties in carrying the piece of food(again I think it was little bread or some sort of food they find and pick to take to their house) because the piece was a bit big for it to carry. It still didn't stop, its pulled and pulled, walked very slowly and dragged and dragged the piece..while doing so, another ant showed up and for my :w00t: I saw it grabbing the piece with the first ant and pulling it together, heading to one of the wholes. I remember that I ran back in, told everyone about what I saw in excitement lol I swear, not everyone got as excited as I used from observing other creatures:HistericalSmiley:

I still enjoy observing, but don't get enough time or opportunities to observe (so I do it much much much less than when I used to as a little child).

Snowy and Crystal amaze me when I see them interact.

OMG!! Crystal is the trickiest when it comes to getting what she wants because she does it in a very sneaky way. Crystal loves stuffed, soft toys. Snowy is crazy in love about them (in fact, he is crazy about all toys). Snowy will play anytime you give him a toy (toys get kept in their toy box. It is their mommy who tells them when it is play time). Crystal, on the other hand, will have her mood to play and not to play. What turns her mood up to play is seeing Snowy plays AND the only toy that she wanna play with is the specific toy that Snowy is playing with at that time (her eyes will only be on that toy that Snowy is playing with-even if you threw a similar toy for her to fetch. She wont move from wanting that toy which is with Snowy). If I take that toy from Snowy and give it to Crystal, she will play with it UNTIL I hand Snowy another toy to play with. Her interest will go to the toy that is with Snowy again.
So what does she do if her mommy didn't get involved in helping her get the toy that is under Snowy's paws? she will approach him, shower his face (nose and mouth) with KISSES, WANTING 4 HIM 2 KISS BACK! Once he does (kisses back), at that second, she will snatch the toy and run away with it, leaving the boy confused, realizing that he was tricked by Crystal.

It took Snowy sometime to learn her trick. In some occasions, he will refuse to kiss back, stays persistent instead. His toy is what he wants until the tricky girl leaves him alone. However, in other occasions, he falls for her trick all over again! He cracks me up. Crystal is no innocent and Snowy knows it LOL

I took a video of them doing that 2-3 weeks ago (I think - just before they went for their summer hair cuts ) when I had my Flip Camera in my hand and was able to capture it in action at that second.
In the video, Snowy will stay persistent. You will see him give the "no I don't want your kisses. I know that you will grab my toy if I kiss back" response.
Six years old maltese, Snowy, isn't falling for three years old maltese, Crystal, and her tricky kisses. He is known to be the TOY CHAMPION ....unless he kisses back. I hope to capture that (kisses back) in a video too because he cracks me up after realizing that he was tricked: lost the girl AND his toy

Hope they will make you smile :) Enjoy...

hugs
Kat

Loved the video of you adorable fluffs. Reminds me of my two little ones playing. If nothing good on TV just watch the dogs, probably more
enjoyment anyway.

:wub: I love Snowy & Crystal so much! When I give Toto and Tuffy a new chewie, Tuffy will try to get Toto's away from him and keep them both. Toto "da' boy" on the other hand has his own little routine when I give them each a chewie. He waits until Tuffy has worked on hers for a while to the point where it is softer and then he purposely tries to aggravate her by licking her eyes relentlessly. When he does, she gives out this throaty little growl until I intercede and tell him to cut it out. I swear they are like little kids and always want what the other one has. Though in Tuffy's case, she believes whats hers is hers and what's his is hers too. :HistericalSmiley:

Kat, great story! It's a wonder you didn't become a vet or animal behaviorist.

That Snowy sure does love his toys and the video put a big smile on my face.

Annie doesn't care for toys much, but Sophie loves her toys. What always makes me wonder is how Sophie has her favorites. Even with the toys that are duplicates there is always one of those two that she wants and never the other.

I spend hours on the floor with her and her pile of toys. I'm at one end of the house and she's at the other end (a long open hall of sorts) and I pick up one at a time and ask her "this one"? When she decides it's the one she wants she wags her tail and then I throw it to her and she proceeds to try to kill it. Then, and this is what kills me, she runs around the other side of the house and drops it on the other side of the room and proceeds back to her position. She expects me to go fetch it and throw it back to her - which I grumbly do!

And, everytime I go upstairs she brings a different toy and drops it on the landing until she has a huge pile of toys upstairs then we bring them back down. She's a little quirky.

Thanks for sharing the story and the video, Kat. Love you and the kids!
