Sure, you survived a heart transplant, kid. But can you go a Round with Jack Dempsey?
The contenders. In the left corner, weighing in at approximately 20 pounds, we have "Baby Jack" Dempsey (1/19/05). And on the right, weighing in at 17 pounds, we have the challenger, "Miracle Baby Jordan" Trimarchi (1/18/05).
Getting these two together for a visit, seemed like a good idea at the time. After all, their moms went through pregnancy at the same time, and these guys almost shared the same birth day. It started innocently enough. A friendly grab here...
A reach for some cheek there...
Till suddenly Baby Jack pulls a WWF style smackdown. Like a good wildlife photographer, observing the animals in their natural habits, I did not intervene immediately.
Not to be outdone, Jordan decides he's had enough with the whole "sharing" thing. Nobody messes with the ball, man. The room is full of a hundred different toys, but this ball is serious business.
A short time out results while the two monkeys are given a chance to observe each other across the gate, and think about their behavior.
Peace is restored in baby-land, as Jordan grudgingly shares some Leap Frog table time with his guest.
