Wrestle Mania

Crunch and John spend a fair amount of their time wrestling with each other. I call it Greco-Roman Dachshund wrestling and it is usually at my feet. Here is a shot of them as I sit at the computer:

Here they are again from the side:

Crunch stands over John, pawing his body and mouthing him all over. John is usually on the bottom sucking on Crunch’s ears. By the end of their session Crunch’s ears are a sodden mess. In a small way I am pleased that John abuses Crunch’s ears in this manner. Up until John’s arrival, Crunch had been sucking on Rally’s ears for the past 12 years. Mind you it wasn’t all day long, just every evening for an hour or so. Usually she would patiently endure his attentions, only occasionally growling at him when he got a little too over enthused. For Rally the advent of John has improved her life.

The funniest part is the noise.

The two of them roll about the floor slamming into furniture and toys. The whole time Crunch makes the most bizarre vocalizations. It is a combination of moans, groans, barks and whines. All of which are uttered through a mouthful of John’s skin. John on the other hand remains silent. The only time he barks at Crunch is when Crunch has a toy John wants. It never fails to amuse Meryl if she over hears it on the phone. One of these days I have to record it.
