Good Evening everyone. Just a quick query really. Bud, as many of you know, is extremely excitable and loving and loves nothing more than to play, eat and sleep (walk, run, jump etc are also in there.) My wife and i don't see much difference in how he behaves with each of us, when we are both together. There is however becoming a difference when he and i are together and my wife is not here. He prefers to rest, either in his crate or beside me. But doesn't tend to want to play when we are inside. Outside he will go crazy but indoors he seems to be losing some enthusiasm. Once my wife is home he picks up and is ready to play again - but here's the thing. It is me he will come to the most with his toys for some tug, or to have a wrestle (which is certainly taking its toll a bit some days.) I find myself thinking "Why couldn't you do this before mum came home?" All thoughts welcome. Thank you. Tony Additional Note:- I had wondered if he could be picking up on my health issues and choosing not to burden me too much physically. But, as much as this would be a lovely gesture and very intelligent, it wouldn't explain his outside playful manner, and how he plays with me when my wife is here.
