The day after I gave Bear a new bone, I decided I needed another one for River. In theory, it would keep her from stealing Bear’s.
She loved her new bone. I think she gnawed on it for hours.

However, when Bear got tired, he guarded his to make sure River didn’t steal it.
Bear had good reason to guard his. Every change she had, River just watched and waited for the right moment…
