Duke, our 8 year old, rolls his tennis balls under the couch. He almost always has a tennis ball. He then pretends he can't get them himself. He has done this since he was a puppy. He will take a ball and stick his head way under the couch, leave the ball there and then whine or bark until you get up to get the ball and hand it back to him. He really prefers you toss it in the air and he catches it. Then back under the couch it goes.... Most of the time he can actually get to it himself.

Since we've gotten Moe, our 1 year old, Duke will bark to distract Moe from his toy and then snatch Moe's toy and hide it under the couch. It's quite the game at our house.

I. Love. This. Thread.

Storm is full of quirks. One of my favorites of hers is that she rarely uses her legs to get off the couch. Picture a golden laying on the couch, kicking the back cushion with enthusiasm, and launching herself off the couch, landing on her back or side. She also loves to slide, head first, off the couch. The first time she did this I had a heart attack. Now, at almost 5 years old, she loves the laughs she gets.

My favorite quirk of Rey's is that she is a nosy girl. She needs to be aware of every snack being eaten, every bathroom trip, every move the cats make, if a leaf falls outside.
