Six-Month-Olds and an Old Pair of Shoes

Of interest is the size of these youngsters: although they were only six months old, they were pretty close to full-size at this age — some filling-in has taken place since then, but not much. I’m not going to say a lot because the video speaks for itself. Just notice the perpetual motion and the perpetual engagement with each other. These critters are absolutely social and they love interacting. There’s lots of good-willed teasing going on, competition, and vying with each other. There’s constant visual engagement and communication through body language. Emotions, desires, moods are all on display. Through play they hone physical and social skills which they’ll use throughout their lives. Enjoy!

The cast: Lil’Girl, Pepper, Pinocchio, and Captain. Cyrano wasn’t there in this play session taken on October 12th, two months ago. Since that time, Captain was found dead of rat poisoning. And an older sibling from last year’s was killed by a car.

    Those guys are a hoot. But poor little Sister. I’m glad she at least had a turn with the shoe. Fun to get up close and “personal” with them. Thanks, Janet!

    They are so beautiful. This scene plays out in my living room (domestic dogs) daily. It is so endearing. They look really healthy.

      They certainly are entertaining if you’re lucky enough to see them for any stretch of time! Yes, they are healthy until . . . . One was killed by rat poison, an older brother by a car. :((
