And then my dad had the brilliant idea to teach Max how to fetch. So he played fetch with Evie while Max sat and watched. Max wasn't having any of it.
Then yesterday evening, he caught Max and Evie playing fetch. Max would pick up one of the fetch-mice in his mouth, shake his head, and try to toss it as far as he could. It only went about a foot and a half, but Evie dutifully picked it up and carried it back to him. He "tossed" it again for her. My dad said they did this for about 10 minutes, until they realized Daddy was watching.
That's SO CUTE!
