House guest

We had Marvin visiting for the afternoon/evening today! Marvin is Zebedee's puppy school friend and I have taken portraits of him in the past. Zebedee has stayed with Marvin (and his people) a couple of times while we have been on holiday, so today was our chance to return the favour, if only for one day. First we went for a walk in Stanmer Park. Here is the handsome Marvin:

Zebedee and Marvin had a good scamper in the woods.

Marvin was lagging behind a little... Zebedee does whizz around the woods running this or that direction, then another direction, constantly on the move. Marvin was a little slower, but I thought it was very cute how he followed Zed around, even if from a little distance.

Stick fight.

And some more play.

When we got home, the true mayhem began. These two play and play fight for hours. They seem to love each others' company.

Some choice expressions from play fight:

They also discovered that they can play tug-of-war with each other for much longer than with any human. A duck met its death in a few seconds, and continued to be ripped apart for quite some time.

When there was nothing left of the duck, they started pulling each others' faces.

Who knows what's going on in this picture...

I decided it was time to calm them down so I encouraged them to take a little nap. The sweet little things lay down back to back next to each other.

But it didn't take long and they were awake again and playing tuggie with another toy.

Eventually (=several hours later...) Zebedee got tired (!) and Marvin got the toy all for himself.

Isn't he just the cutest! :)
