It’s hilarious watching puppies play their games. Who knows what goes on in their minds as they play. But Zeph is very clearly imagining himself as some Western cowboy, ready for a showdown at the O.K. Corral.

His favourite game is to lie in wait for Zsa Zsa. I often see him crouching in the grass, like a lion in the African savanna. As Zsa Zsa nears, he pounces and they have a right royal tussle. But now that ZZ is a bit older, she’s adopted a cunning tactic. Simply sit opposite Zeph and wait it out. This confuses poor Zeph who turns around and looks at me, as if to say “Hey, she’s not playing my game!”.

ZZ won't play my game anymore. She's just sitting there!
