Back in May, Mom and Dad decided to get a new puppy for the family. They told me that part of the reason why they wanted to get a new puppy was so that I could have a playmate. Whenever I get bored, I either nudge one of them and lay my head on their lap or I stand about 2 feet away from them and stare until they can't take it anymore. I guess those tactics were starting to get old, so now I have a new little brother. He's not so new anymore, since we've been together for 9 months already.
His name is Duncan. He can be such a pest sometimes. He nibbles on my ankles with his sharp teeth and even latches onto my jowels. I admit, it does make me yelp at times, but I take it like a dog. I play back, but I never actually bite down. He is about a quarter of my size, but I still let him think he's boss. Though my old boxer days of being an energizer bunny have somewhat gone by, I still can keep up with the little whippersnapper. I believe his agility and speed was learned from me. He's also taught me a few things:
1. Eating all my food right away instead of one bite at a time like I used to.
2. Barking at other dogs while we're walking.
3. Barking when the door bell rings.
Sometimes I'm not in the mood to play and just want to take a nap. That's usually when Mom or Dad make a bed for me and keeps Duncan away. At first, I was a bit skeptical about the addition, but now it's all gravy.
