My chair has been bashed for the third time now and I have almost been knocked out of it twice, all because these two hooligans have decided it’s game on. When Charlie and Orso go at it, furniture gets moved whether it’s occupied or not. It is eighty-five degrees outside and these two sissies think the only place that they can play and wrestle is in the house. At almost nine years old, Charlie is a tad on the cranky side most of the time and won’t play with Orso. Orso who is the perennial puppy is always up for a free for all, so when Charlie is in the mood Orso will take advantage of every moment of neck chewing he can get.
Normally the wrestling only lasts for five or ten minutes tops, but tonight this has been going on now for twenty minutes. There is lots of heavy panting, but no one is giving an inch of ground. Barking, snarling and bodies leaping on and off the bed, means a good time is being had by all. Mitch has been trying fruitlessly to stay out of the line of fire, but it’s not working. He’s been bowled over twice now. I call a time out when one of them grabs the edge of my rug in his teeth and wants to play tug of war. Nothing is safe from the jaws of death around here.
After twenty five minutes Charlie has finally called a truce and both have tongues hanging all the way to the floor. A quick drink and both collapsed on the floor to cool off. Now I just have to cross my fingers that maybe they will both sleep all night long and not come nudge me in the middle of the night to see if I’m awake.

Still better than changing diapers!
You are so right!
Ha ha. If Ruby has a housemate they’d be chaos too:)
Yes but it’s a fun chaos! These two are a never ending source of entertainment.
Entertainment, but probably very titing for you both:)
We get to rearrange furniture a lot. And it helps keep us nimble.
I understand. No worries, I do the same thing, my fingers don’t move the way my brain thinks sometimes.
You’re very patient, Susan
LOL that is one way to tire them out on a hot day!
Yeah, my furniture movers. The house suffers, but oh well.
At least you’ll never get tired of the way the furniture is arranged; if you do, you can just wait a while, and it will change…. 🙂 Also, a tip… a piece of very thick rope, about 2 to 3 feet in length, with a knot at each end….Next time they start to play, give it to them, and they may learn to play tug o’war together, thus saving at least your sheets and rugs, if not the stuff they’ll knock over…. If they won’t take it at first, just drip a little bacon grease on the knots…. they’ll fight over it…. 😉
Wow what a unique idea, we should patent it and make a fortune, bacon flavored rope. Genius!
