That baby has started taking all of my toys. There I am minding my own business, licking my butt, when all of a sudden she swoops in and takes my blue ball, or my bone, or my ring, or whatever I have in my paws at the time. What really bothers me about the whole thing is that usually when my friends take my toys that means they want to play. So, I go bite them, kick them, butt-kwon-do them, or whatever. I think Ellie wants to play, but Josh says I cannot under any circumstances kick her, bite her, butt-kwon-do her, pounce on her, roll on her, or any other such thing. How is a dog supposed to play if he can’t do any of those things? I can’t exactly play tea-party (no opposable thumbs). I’ll have to figure something out.

Hmm, Josh says I can’t pounce. But, a synonym for pounce is ‘leap,’ and Josh didn’t say anything about no leaping upon Ellie. I’ll try it.
