Watching dogs play is often reminiscent of watching children play. They like to play the same games and often require the same amount of policing.
Mr. N and Sage like to expend their energy by playing tag. Mr. N prefers to be “it.” Whenever Sage is running, you’ll see Mr. N right behind her. Just biding his moment to tackle her and declare victory.
Hide and seek is also a favorite. Their strong sense of smell makes the game easier so they like to “disguise” their scent by rolling in various disgusting things.
Mr. N and Sage defend their fort from all invaders. Canine or equine or human!
Much like children though, the most popular game is “it’s mine!” If Sage finds a stick, Mr. N immediately claims it as his. Sage usually waits until Mr. N tires of it and then steals it back.
