A new test method for the Temperament Test

While rummaging through my box of Christmas paper and bows, I came across one of these:



Naturally, being the evil person that I am, I immediately blew on it hard enough to make it squawk and uncurl the paper, right there in front of Kip's nose. AW....He flinched a bit and moved back to a safer position.

Then Capri entered the room and I applied the same test to her. Before I could blink, she snatched the paper roll out of mid-air and took off flying with the whole thing, crunching on the plastic tip as she went. She had gotten in a good crunch or two and basically ruined the whole thing before I got it back.



Upon reflection, I suppose it served me right.

I was going through stuff once and found a maraca, which I shook. Elka (puppy) peed and ran away. I felt so bad

(to her credit, she did come back and nose bump and sniff it as well)
