Yep they won. Keeping up with The Toddler is tiring but add Toddler friends and it’s exhausting.
1. Toddlers don’t move as an organised pack. Ok I’m not a herding dog. The gundog parts of me says chase balls and stuff rather than herd yet I like to keep an eye on the Toddlers (I’m protective like that) so I always like to be near them. The issue is that they tend to spread out across all the rooms in the house or across the backyard. Stick together toddlers.
2. Food is always an option. Toddlers tend to eat lots of little meals. Always need to be on alert for food opportunities.
3. They have LOTS of energy! Seriously… I thought I had lots of energy but The Toddler just keeps going. It is like she has a battery that doesn’t run out.
So that’s it folks. I’m snoozing.
Does it get easier as they get a bit older?
Way to go 1st world dog. You deserve a nap. I on the other hand am not around toddlers much and still take lots of naps. I am also very protective of my people and heaven help anyone who even looks like they might be a threat. I’ve actually been told I go overboard on this last issue, so am trying to lighten up.
Glad we are pen pals. Lucy – dog of the Library Lady.
It’s nice to be protective Lucy but tell mum to give you lots of treats when you do nice greetings… I’m all for getting treats for good behaviour.
I thought toddlers take naps too? 😛
