No Bitey Face Before Breakfast

I am do not try to be a bad dog on purpose. I just couldn't help myself. Barbara's training bag was open and Flat Brutus looked irresistible. What can I say??

As you know from previous posts I am very good at bitey face. Niamh taught me the rules of the game when I was just a little puppy. And Niamh has a lot of rules! The most important one is no bitey face before breakfast.

While I am a morning dog, Niamh likes to take her time getting up. Then she likes to spend time looking out the sliding glass doors and contemplating the canine condition (I think she is just looking for deer). She does not like me to disturb her while she is meditating and will give me a severe correction if I do so. I learned early on that I have to leave her alone at this time.

After we have breakfast she is much more interested in playing with me. We usually get on one of the dog beds and do some good bitey face. It is a pretty restrained version but a nice way to start off the day.

Sometimes Niamh will even play a little tug of war with me with one of her toys. I also like to tug on her ears if I get the opportunity.

It is most annoying to have the camera flashing at us when we are trying to play though.

At night we play a much more active form of bitey face which can get a bit wild. There are no pictures of that though because we are usually moving too fast for Barbara to get photos plus there is a lot of crashing into furniture and Barbara trying to calm us down. What's a good game of bitey face without some furniture crashing?

Hi, Ambrose!
Glad you understand that Niamh needs some time for herself in the mornings!
I can imagine your bitey face games! Sounds... wild!

Furniture crashing? Woo Hoo! Over here, it is the kitties who specialise in that. I mostly play with other woofies wen I am outside.

You are both looking so sleek in the photos!

Reclining bitey face is a good way to start the day whilst still digesting your foodables.

I love a good game of bitey face, but sometimes Tagpi bites my Spaniel ears too hard, which ends with me getting kind of mad. Perhaps you two should come round to teach him how to play a proper game of bitey face.
