Hey everypup ~Scooter here~
Mom always calls me Goofball Pie because of how I am with my SNACKS.
In the morning after my privacy please time we all get SNACKS. Yes, you heard right, all the other pups have to wait until I go outside and come back in before they get theirs. No matter if they have already been outside! BOL.
After I come back inside, Mom gives all the other pups their SNACK and I just stand there grinning and wagging my tail. Mom always tries to get me to take it and 95% of the time I don't. Want to know why? Sure you do. It's because I want her to walk down the hall and lift me up onto the bed and THEN give me my SNACK. That way I can watch while she does all that weird stuff in the bathroom before work. (Did you know you shouldn't jump on the back of Mom's leg when she is leaning really close to the mirror and putting stuff on her eyelashes? Let me tell you - that makes a mess you just don't want to witness. BOL)
The other 5% of the time I take it walk 4 steps and toss it down and wait for Mom to pick it up, carry it down the hall and lift me up to the bed.
Then when Mom gets home from work she gives us all a MILKBONE™ so we will "Chill Out" and she can go privacy please and put down all her stuff from work. Then we all play the in / out game and she stands at the door letting us in and out. Mostly she doesn't have to close the door before we want back in. Mainly because none of us want any other pup to get the first pets from Mom. This is important and we are very vocal about who is picked first. Mom says it's all by random, and if I had the gumption I'd prove her wrong.
For the first SNACK after Mom gets home she just tosses it at me to where I'm sitting. Either the couch or my own special Scooter chair. She used to be a softball pitcher and she's very accurate at the underhand tosses so you don't have to worry about fighting the fast ones (Cutter and Pepper) for your very own SNACK.
This one - I just sit on and then bring out after everyone else has eaten theirs. I just play with it a little bit, picking it up and dropping it on the pillow, teasing the other dogs. Eventually I either get distracted or have to go outside. As soon as I move, it is a race by the others to get to where I have either left my SNACK or really good crumbs.
Once I come back inside I need to have another SNACK and that one I take up to my pillow pile on the couch and toss it around and play with it before settling in for a good nosh.
Still all the other pups do the "shark" around me in case I drop it or move away from it. Sometimes on the weekend I will sleep next to it for hours and fearfully defend it with a Scooter growl. rrrRRRgggggrrrggggrrrRRRgggggrrrrrr.
Sniff at ya later ~Scooter~ AKA "Goofball Pie"

I plays with my snacks too. But usually I ends up eating dem because I don't want Finley to get 'em.
You have a furry innerestin roo-teen there Scooter.
We got a "do not play with your cookie" rule 'round here. Or else I would grab and gulp them. :-)
I like to save my treats sometimes. I bury them in the pillows or under the pile of toys. But I have to be careful because Duncan is a treat stealer and he gobbles his right up. Your routine sounds interesting. I don't think Mum would go through all that just so my treat was safe.
