Whenever he sees one or even thinks one is in the room, his eyes light up like a Christmas tree.
So, pirateday got himself a package last week with, yup, packing peanuts. No matter how careful we try to be, Ares always manages to snatch one.
This morning was no exception. I walked into the dining room with my cereal and noted him batting around one of the little buggers. (Note: This wouldn't be so bad if he didn't eventually eat them.)
I grabbed the peanut and set it up on the table while I ate my breakfast. He jumped up on a chair, eyeing the morsel as if it were made of gold. He attempted to sneak a paw or two on the table in hopes that I wouldn't notice so he could snag it from me. When that didn't work, he hopped down, and back up on another chair and tried again. And then, whoosh, back to the other chair when it didn't work yet again.
This was my morning breakfast entertainment!
At least he's stopped peeing on everything.
