Unfortunately (of or maybe for your viewing sake, fortunately), my camera isnt fast enough to catch the problem. Bailey licks Ruthie, so Ruthie assumes she can lick Bailey. Today was a little out of control. Maybe Bailey is highly attracted to her bright blue eye patch, I dont know, but they have been licking each other all afternoon. Rationalizing with Ruthie hasnt worked either. Can you believe that a 1 year old pirate doesnt understand, "Bailey can lick you, but you cant lick Bailey" or "Ruthie isnt a doggy, so you dont lick"? She even gets Bailey to lick her by getting close to Bailey's face and sticking her own tongue in and out until Bailey licks her.
If Ruthie thinks she is a dog, I may use it to my advantage. Both of my dogs are housebroken....so I could save some money on diapers if Ruthie learned how to use the doggy door.
