Little devil Lizzie
It turns out our little Lizzie Baby is not so innocent after all. She has been getting Benji into trouble and playing little tricks on him lately.
A couple of days ago, Benji was sleeping in my lap. Lizzie was lying on the other side of the sofa with her eyes half closed. Suddenly, Benji started to growl at Lizzie. I knew that she hadn't made any move to annoy him and so I told Benji a firm no to growling at Lizzie. He was quite put off and climbed out of my lap and settled on the floor away from me. What does Ms. Lizzie do, she climbed into my lap with alacrity. I think Lizzie obviously gave him some subtle doggie "looks" or subliminal messages that made him growl at Lizzie.
This evening Benji was again sleeping in my lap and Lizzie was playing by herself. Then she saw I was petting Benji, she turned on her back, all paws in the air, started to scratch on the sofa ....this is her way of inviting Benji to play. Benji ignored her at first, but the little witch was quite persistent and he succumbed. He jumped on the floor to play with her and she jumped right back on the sofa into my lap!!
I knew Lizzie was very sharp but didn't realize how sharp until now. Poor Benji is a straight shooter and thankfully, his Mom has caught on the games his little scheming sister plays.
Here's a picure of Benji and Lizzie as they settle on Mom to sleep while Mom watches a movie.
