According to Olivia, there is a fine art to stealing a good twig in the snow. We were our racing around the yard, enjoying the cold air and fresh snow. My photo looks like my summer FastCAT photos only with snow!
Olivia was being more careful. As she was moving along, she was singing the song, “put one paw in front of the other, and soon you’ll be running away with your sister’s twig.” Something tells me those are not the original words from Sesame Street, but they fit Olivia.
I found a twig by one of our big birch trees. Olivia is crazy for those twigs. She saw me with the twig and put herself into fast forward, bounding her long self over to me.
Not knowing how to get the twig away from me, she stood back, showing little interest while I investigated my find.
The longer I was messing around with the twig, the more irritated Olivia became. She was trying to figure out how she would get it away from me. To frustrate her, I started to play around with it a little bit. See her face? She can’t believe it as usually I don’t give one hoot about a twig.
Olivia decided to slowly approach me with the idea of maybe splitting the twig. She has that big paw out, and is starting to make her move to steal.
Whoops, there goes my twig! Just like that, in the blink of an eye, she steals my twig and heads off with it! I’m stunned.
Next thing I know, there she is parading around the yard in front of me with the stolen item. I have to admit, she is quite talented when it comes to stealing a good twig. In the end, the joke was on her as Mom took it away. Olivia likes to chew and eat twigs, but that is not allowed as it is dangerous. No matter, we are happy pups out in our nice snowy yard!
