View Full Version : Cedar's New Obsession

29th July 2006, 01:36 AM
We are visiting my parents this weekend, and my mother got out her basket of toys she's given to "the girls". They are toys that she's pulled from the remnants of her daycare, so we have to watch them closely. The stuffed bear, for example, has stuffing.

Anyway, one of the toys that Cedar thinks is THE BEST is a bumblebee that has a pull string. When you pull on the string, the bee buzzes and shakes. Obviously, this isnt a dog toy, so it's purely supervised. Cedar was mesmerized when we buzzed it for her the first time. When it buzzed out, she brought it back and we buzzed it again. Of course, this started a cycle that she could do for hours. Eventually, the human element tired of the constant pulling of the string. When Cedar wasnt immediately rewarded with a buzzing bee, she figured she could do it herself. She grabbed the little ring at the end of the string, held the bee in her front paws and got it buzzing. So now she lays there, pulls the string, and holds the buzzing bee. When it stops buzzing, she pulls the string again. OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER. She's obsessed!! I dont know what she'll do when the motor wears out..... :roll:

Oh that Cedar is smart. She'll be teaching Willow and the next thing you know they'll be making coffee in the morning. Isn't it amazing to see how they figure things out for themselves!

That has got to be the most intelligent thing I've ever heard of a cavalier doing!

Incredible. :)

I was just going to ask the same thing :lol:

Moviedust, you've just got to video her and put it on youtube for us to see, I'll bet she's really proud of herself, bless her.

What a great idea--the video!! I've never posted a video to the web before, but I enlisted my DH (tech guru) and I *think* I have one.


If you can, watch til the end; Cedar's apprentice, Willow, makes an appearance. ;)

Hope it works!!

OMG that is one of the CUTEST things I have ever seen a cavalier do!! :lol: :lol: I can't believe she figured out how to pull the cord to make the bee buzz!!

I am going to create a section in the gallery just for videos right now as we are getting quite a few and it is fun to have them all in one place, with an explanation for them too when people link to them. :)

Brilliant! and beautiful too. :flwr: her sister seems enthralled. 'stick around kid, you'll go far.' Cedar certainly is a camera hound and so photogenic. I noticed from your first avatar picture, and many others, i how she seemed enjoy the fun of being photoed by mom, the way some kids grin and wave when you turn a camera on them. She certainly performed perfectly for the video. thanks!! bravo!
