So when Bingo found an old Kong toy under the couch this afternoon, one that had been lost for several weeks, he was thrilled, and he ran through the house like he had won the lottery. Bingo did his best to tease Willow with the Kong, and she fell for the bait, chasing him around the house like a jealous kid.
Then she picked up the big red bone, confident that the young and impulsive Bingo would fall for the trick and chase after her.
Instead, the two dogs faced off, nose to nose a few inches apart, each with a toy and engaged now in a test of wills, a game of chicken that went on for at least 5 minutes.
The loser would drop her toy first and look away ashamed. The winner would sit down on his blanket and enjoy his victory.
