They went out swimming in the morning, which didn't involve me, but then they came back and spent the afternoon playing with me, before taking me over to visit Knuckles. Now, I like having a little brother and all, but sometimes Knuckles just really sticks so close to me... like a shadow. Everything I do, he comes and does too. I go to this room, and he runs after me. Not just close to me, but he presses up against me.
If I eat, he has to eat too!
But what I really don't like, is when he uses his cute "no-mouth" face to start getting belly rubs and chin scruffs from my Humans. Hey! That's my Momma! You have your own, Knucks! Don't try to steal my Momma from me!
I really don't like it. Anytime he goes near my Humans, I get angry and I start barking at him and chasing him away. So the next day, I had a chat with my Momma.
Me: Momma, how come when we go to visit Aunt Jol and grandmother, you always show Knuckles so much attention?
Momma: That's because we play with you all the time when we're at home. I hardly get to see Knuckles, so when I do, I play with him.
I was okay with that answer for a while. But then on Sunday, I told the Beagle from down the road what Momma said, then the Beagle brought up a good point: what if Knuckles lived with us and Momma saw him all the time? Would that mean my Momma would play with him all the time too?
I think I'm going to have to stick closer to my Momma from now on, and not let Knuckles and his cute "no-mouth" look steal my Momma away.
