The Boxers invent a new game...

We have recently got rid of the baby gate at the bottom of our stairs, as Max kept jumping over it to get to me if I was upstairs. I was worried about him injuring himself, so we've taken it down for now.

This means the Boxers can now follow me upstairs (and wake their Daddy up in a morning with kisses )

I was in the bathroom last night (no more details will be forthcoming ) and Murphy was sat on the bathmat, but Max was laid outside the bathroom door (he refuses to come in because of the B.A.T.H.)

All of a sudden he ran downstairs and Murphy followed.

For the next few minutes all I could hear was Boxers thundering up and down stairs and muffled bumps and bangs.

When I did see what they were doing I laughed out loud!

Max had brought a Kong upstairs (still a bit of stuff left in the bottom) and was throwing it downstairs. As soon as it hit the bottom, Murphy would go and get it and bring it back upstairs. Max would then steal it off him, eat whatever had come loose and throw it down the stairs again

Of course, my stairs and landing were covering in bits of biscuit and peanut butter

Poor Murphy was doing all the work whilst Max was getting the treats... I suppose that's the perk of having a little brother!!

No, sorry, that's not a new boxer game it's an old Mini Schnauzer game! Pepper worked out ages ago that she can get the last little bits out of her kong or treat ball ball by dropping it down the stairs.

You boxers are so behind the times.

LOL it took mine a while to realise that dropping kongs from a good height releases some food too Murphy will need to make Max work next time

How clever are they for working that out?!! Poor Murphy will just have to hoover up the crumbs on the stairs for his share

Hehe, sounds like they're having great fun the bit about the bathroom reminded me of one of my old dogs a Lab x, you darn't leave the bathroom door open if you were having a bath as he would come running and from a distance take a great leap and end up in with you, with most of the water on the bathroom floor

what happened in the bathroom then ??
Good game for them and new territory.
Sounds a little like my two, Archie always runs like mad for the ball, then Harvey strolls up and pinches it off him

They certainly are (but I'm biased )

That they are as well...very cute, but little sods!!! PLAY, PLAY, PLAY!!!

My Benson has mince stuffed in his Kong, and now realises that flinging it into the air sends mince flying across the kitchen. His tail (yes, he has one) wags like crazy as he hoovers up the debris.

Problem is, I keep finding mince in my shoes, cups, fruit bowl etc etc.
