Stories I recall:
Yippee was extremely playful her first 6 years. We had a Jack Russell called Bijou that was older than Yippee by 7 years. Yippee tormented Bijou and Bijou just hated her. All Bijou was interested in was food. At the breakfast table both would beg. I'd hand Yippee a piece of toast and Bijou would be very upset. Yippee would taunt her with it. Lay in front of her with a keen eye and lay the toast on the floor. Bijou would stand very tense and as soon as she made any move Yippee would grab it up and run with Bijou growling and nipping at her heels. Yippee would run over the couches back, around and under the table, all over the house. When Bijou got tired. Yippee would lay with the toast in front of her until she caught her breath and it would start all over again. As soon as Yippee saw that Bijou was growing very tired she would just walk over and give the toast to Bijou. Don't feel sorry for Bijou, she'd retaliate. She would steal Yippees toys and lay on the floor snarling and snapping at her. Yippee would lay in front of her and slowly reach out her paw to touch the toy and Bijou would snap at it and grab the toy and walk proudly off.
