"Mom, make it challenging"

I told you once about Gimme finding her collar for me (it had fallen from its usual place).  Since then I've tried to get her to bring it to me when its time to put it on.  She will do it, but makes it pretty clear she thinks its stupid.  I thought it was because it was usually right within arms reach and she thought I should do it myself.  

So then I started leaving it farther away, usually on the floor.  I see her noticing where it is, but then she pretends for awhile it isn't there.  Usually after about two minutes she suddenly finds it and then brings it to me.  Since I always put it on her prior to us leaving to go do something fun for Gimme, I didn't understand her delay.

Lately I've noticed her doing a more extravagant "search" for her collar before discovering it in plain sight.  She'll get up on the couch, check behind furniture, on the bookshelves, etc.  Yesterday I realized she really wanted to hunt for it - she wanted a challenge.  Today I tossed it on the other end of the couch when she wasn't looking.  She was so excited when she found it.

This means I'll have to start putting it in novel places when we come home.  Its likely I'll forget where I've put it, so she really will have to find it for me.  Never a dull moment...
