I don't know all of the rules yet, they aren't telling me, but I'm positive that cheating is involved! The playing field is a freshly waxed kitchen floor. The puck, one very carefully selected piece of dog kibble. We begin with a flurry of batting and banging into chairs and walls, then SCORE! The puck finds its place down the heat register! Each score is punctuated by a long time out with much washing and lolling around on the playing field. While observing the game I have noticed several different play techniques used. The slap shot, where one apponent will run up and slap his rival and gain the puck for his own and score! The most intriguing is the WHERE'D IT GO stance where an apponent will actually sit on the puck and pretend to look for it until the rival becomes disinterested and then score without opposition. The funniest technique is the NOT IN THIS NINE LIVES BUSTER!! Where one opponent will guard the puck between his front paws while the rival pounces on him in order to gain control of the puck, this usually ends in a real donnybrook with much rolling and wrestling. Sadly this technique usually ends the game, but that's ok because now I can go to the basement and retrieve five pounds of dog food out of the heat duct
Awwwww, my girls want to play too.... but mean old mom won't buy dog food for a non existent dog... and popcorn just doesn't fit in the heating vents! (but can be tastey to munch on if you want to hide the "puck " from your opponent!"
Too funny... I can just picture it, your post was very descriptive!
