The day that I have dreaded is finally here. Paco has learned object permanence!!
I used to simply cover something up if I didn't want it chewed up and Paco would immediately think it was gone.
I hid the twizzlers under a pillow and he went and lifted up the pillow and pulled the bag of twizzlers out. He looked a me like "you can't fool me--here they are and I want one."
Oh, for the good old day when simply hiding something worked.
P.S. I don't usually give him candy, but one day he ran up to me and stole the twizzler out of my hand & learned that it tasted good. Now everytime he sees them he wants one.
