Sparky has bounded upstairs. Stairs are so exciting when you don't have them in your own home, and they're such an adventure when you only weight 8.9 pounds! I've chased after him to make sure he doesn't wreak any havoc.
Sparky comes back downstairs and notices. He promptly marches over and proceeds to steal the rawhide from Kiva.
Sparky, having the puppy attention span he does, walks around downstairs to see what else there is for him to explore. Kiva, seeing her chance, starts chewing on the rawhide once again. Hearing the sound of rawhide being chewed, Sparky bounds over to steal back his rawhide. He chews on it for a few seconds, loses interest, and wanders off again. Kiva sees her opportunity again, and chews on the rawhide. Sparky bounds back over to steal his rawhide from Kiva's grip. And so the story goes a few more times back and forth. Now Sparky has lost interest in his rawhide and instead gained interest in chasing his tail.
Every time Sparky steals the rawhide, poor Kiva just looks at me and lets him take it. She's so good. He's such a brat!
