Mom put away the Thomas/Brio wooden trains that had been spread out all over the living room, and vacuumed.
Then she got out the Duplos. The Wee Lass, Little Lad, and Little Lad Pal settled down to play with the accumulated mass of three Lads plus a Wee Lass collecting Duplo sets over many years.
Surprisingly, there were also train tracks with the Duplos.
Oh, NO! There was a Brindle on the Tracks! I was asked to move. I refused. Mom picked me up and moved me, but true to my nature as Queen Sophine, I had found a comfortable spot, train tracks or no tracks, and I went right back to laying on the tracks.
The TransContinental Railroad was built despite avalanches, mountains, weather, and language barriers; I think that The Wee Lass is just going to have to put up with a Brindle on the Tracks now and again, unless she finds a stray stick of dynamite to move me.

Hopefully they were nice enough to not have the trains run you over!!! Way to hold your ground of your sleepin spot!! Thats an important thing to us doggies!
Susie is going to have to learn to deal with a brindle on the tracks. I had to deal with Samson and Tyler. You are just making it more realistic. Duplo doesn't make things like train robbers from the Wild West or Terrorist simulators. You are just trying to show Susie real life problems with the tools you have.
The Wee Lass is going to have to build a Simple Machine Crane from the Simple Machine Duplo Set, and use it to lift me off the tracks. Unfortunately, I don't think The Wee Lass knows about Simple Machines yet, so in the meantime I shall retain my nap spot.
