You know that little kid in the playground who has the exact same toy as the kid next to him, but is never satisfied with his own toy? The one who has to go steal the other kids toy no matter what?
Princessface Maizey is that kid.
And while she isn’t bugging Magnus with her, “Magnus grass is greener” syndrome, she is bugging me.
Here’s the scenario, they each have a bully, she goes and takes his. He gets bored, “Hmmm. . . I wish my sisser wouldn’t take my bully. I know I’ll go bug Crazymomlady.”
Sometimes Crazymomlady has important business to take care of and can’t entertain Little Magnus. That’s why Crazymomlady gave the pups toys, bully’s, hooves, bones, etc to entertain them in the first pace. Sometimes Crazymomlady doesn’t want to stop said important business and remind Little Magnus where the other toy, bully, hoof, bone, etc. is.
Crazymomlady gets especially irritated when she goes to find the other device of entertainment and Princessface Maizey is laying on one and chewing on the other!
Crazymomlady gets further frustrated when she gives Little Magnus something else to keep him busy. But as soon as she is immersed in aforementioned important business again Princessface Maizey goes and steals Little Magnus’ new entertainment item, leaving little Magnus to come and bug Crazymomlady again.
Princessface Maizey is not aggressive about taking these things, and Little Magnus is more than generous in handing over even the most cherished of possessions. Unfortunately Little Magnus is not skilled in going to find himself something else to entertain himself with.
Crazymomlady begs the benefit of your experience in owning a greedy dog and she is sure you have advice on how to stop this aggravating cycle of “grass is greener” syndrome. How can Crazymomlady teach Princessface Maizey to keep her hands to herself? Or teach Little Magnus to go get something else to be entertained by?
Crazymomlady would really like to finish typing at least one sentence without being interrupted by this vicious and pernicious cycle. So please help a Crazymomlady out with your vast wisdom and experience!
