learning curve

A new toy was purchased recently for the two pups, a Kong tug. What follows is a dramatic recreation of the past four days.

Day 1-

Arthur: thinks this is the best toy ever. Can't wait to play with it, is totally in love with it, so excited to get a chance to play with it, wow, wow, wow. Oh...also has no idea what to do with it.
Rocky: grrrrrrrrrr.
Day 2-

Arthur: dances enthusiastically when tug toy is brought out. Sheer proximity to the toy is delightful and filled with fun. When retrieving other toys, will bring them to the tug toy, standing on top of it. If the tug is offered to him, he will bump it with his nose.

Rocky: grrrrrrrrrrr.

Day 3-

Arthur: if toy is put inside his mouth, will spit it out, looking for a reward. Understands that it is rude to fight over something that his alphas want.
Rocky: grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Day 4-

Arthur: repeated praise and coaxing has convinced him that the masters desire him to hold the tug toy. Grips it delicately in his jaws, careful not to hurt it or put undue stress upon it.
Rocky: grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Seriously, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
