Present Opening Mayhem

Every year I go to a friends house for Christmas dinner, and every year they buy presents for my dogs. Here’s this year’s present opening ceremony and the ensuing fun.

Initially I gave Brett the present containing the blue and white braided rope, Molly the brown and white rope and Sam the red and white rope. However, Sam decides that he would prefer Brett’s blue and white rope, to which Brett is happy to acquiesce. Later in the video Brett decides to add some of the paper wrappings to his collection.

After clearing away all the wrapping paper (before it gets even more torn to shreds) I gave the dogs back their presents to continue their fun. Molly tries to divest Sam of his toy but Sam, as Boss of Toys, quickly reminds her of his authority. So Molly instead repeatedly steals Brett’s rope whilst he, although reluctant to do so, soon decides that disacretion is the better part of valour. Throughout all this Sam continues his quest to remove the plastic clamp from his toy that is holding the rope in a figure of eight design.

    It’s fascinating watching the three dogs enjoy their presents! And the way they interact.

    What clever pups, figuring out how to free those toys 🙂 Looks like they had a blast!

      That was Molly’s first Christmas present opening and she wasn’t quite sure at first what to do, but watching the other two tearing the paper she soon got the hang of it.
