We're so vicious
Ok, its not a gimpy fight, they're just playing, but just look at them. They try so hard to look all ferocious and evil, yet they can't stop wagging their tails. That's a dead give-away that they aren't serious... plus there's never any blood.
The human woman says (correctly) that you can always tell between huskies playing and huskies fighting, because there's much less blood when they're playing.
I've seen other breeds playing. Some think that chasing a ball and bringing it back is playing (that seems like work to me). I've seen dogs chase each other, tag the one being chased and then someone else is "it". What's the point? Huskies play chase too, except the point of the game is to chase down the prey, grab it by the neck and slam it to the ground and then stomp on it. That's how we play "tag".
We play riccochet queen of the bed. The point of that game is that I'm the queen of the bed, and the puny little gimpy dogs try to get me to leave the bed. They never win, but its fun watching them try. They jump off the bed, run into the living room, get up enough speed to run back into the bedroom, leap on the bed, then attack me. I'm always waiting for that, so they never win.
There's "stick keep away", which means someone finds a tasty stick, we want the tasty stick, so we chase the owner of the tasty stick until he catch them by the scruff of the neck and slam them to the ground. That's a fun one.
As I've mentioned before, Loki doesn't play fair, and will grab us by the tail to slow us down. I hate that. We're too busy trying to get the little pirhana off our tail that we usually drop the stick.
