Bone strikes back

The bone is now persona non grata with Monkey the Greyhound as it caused an 'incident'.
I'd scrapped some of the filling loose so he didn't have to work too hard at enjoying himself and placed it by his paw. Said paw flicked it just out of reach as he went for it.
There followed 10 minutes of looking bored and disinterested as he tried really hard to get to it by stretching without moving off his bed.
Suddenly he overbalanced - can you do that while lying down - his tail or his back leg caught the papier mache cat on the hearth and it made a noise banging into the decorative coal scuttle. Cue leap in the air with reverse to face the source of the noise. I don't think it helped the bone's cause when I started laughing.
Monkey is now studiously ignoring the bone - presumably in case it makes that noise again.
The cat and the coal scuttle can be seen on the top left of this picture taken a few weeks ago.

Ha ha ha! My bet is that he'll forgive the bone -- eventually!

Dang papier mache cats! Causing nothing but trouble. Hopefully the bone's delicious insides will win him back.
