rod at play
I have noticed more recently that sometimes, Rod can be a bit of a tease/jerk while at play. Most notably, while trying to entice you to play with him. While at first I thought, "oh, he just wants me to throw this toy for him." Then I realized, "wait, this dog is intentionally enjoying keeping this for himself!" If he's feeling particularly jerky, he will let you get a full hand on it, then literally rip it out of your hand. Step forward, jerk back, step forward, entice, lead you on, jerk away. I have never seen a dog act so human-like in enjoying keeping something from me! I feel like he laughs a bit every time he's able to allude my grasp and outsmart me like, "tee hee, you can't get this." See below and judge for yourself.
