Last night, Max started chasing Beeps around the kitchen again. This seems to happen on a daily basis lately. I still think it's very strange that she seems to have such a vendetta against him while maintaining a sort of friendship, or at least detente, with Calypso.
Thomas was reading a magazine and I asked him to grab Beeps off of the stand to protect him from Max. Max then flew to the table and stared at Beeps. Thomas said to Max, "The nerve of you trying to intimidate him when he's under my protection!" Of course this made me laugh.By the time I grabbed the camera, Max had stepped up on Thomas and he was giving her a lecture (no doubt ignored) about being part of a family and not attacking Beeps.
Beeps loves hearing his name, so when Thomas was telling Max not to attack him, he heard the repetition of his name and started dancing. We just love it when he dances, so Thomas started singing his name, setting him off even more. Max, who dances frequently, especially when there's music on that she likes, stubbornly refuses to dance when we sing Beeps's name.
