Hi everyone. This is Mollie the chinchilla.
My chinchilla sister, Maizie, keeps on teasing the Lilie dog. I told her to quit, but she doesn't listen. She thinks it's funny, and the Lilie dog seems to think the game is fun too. Stupid dog!
I don't like the Lilie dog so close to the cage, and get upset when she bounces about and jumps up. The human caretakers don't really like her to do it either. But Maizie calls her and encourages her to do it when she thinks the human caretakers aren't paying attention, and sometimes even when she knows they are.
When I know they aren't paying attention, I call them over to stop it. Maizie says I'm spoiling her fun, but I don't care. I'm not having dogs jumping up at my cage... Even if I know the dog is doing it all in fun.
Maizie used to agree with me; she used to get upset when the Lilie dog was bouncing about too close to our cage, just like I still do. But somewhere along the line Maizie decided she liked the Lilie dog after all, and started what she calls playing with her, which looks more like teasing to me. She even started letting the Lilie dog give her slobbery doggy kisses through the bars of the cage! Gross!
Thankfully, both the human caretakers are on my side, and don't like the Lilie dog being near our cage. At least they have some sense. Well, in this case anyhow.
