But the fact is - he's been provoked!
Here is innocent Minky, hanging out, looking cute.
He's enjoying the time he gets to cuddle with his bone.
He's got nothing but googly eyes forhis wonderful owner.
But then he notices the familiar twinkle in Alex's eyes.
"No!" Minky thinks. I am enjoying my time here so much, why are you thinking up of ways to provoke me?
"I'm asking you nicely here!" All Minky wants to do is lay around in his owner's arms, feeling like a spoiled baby. But Alex just wouldn't stop.
Mink tries everything - avoidance, asking nicely, even begging. But Alex just doesn't learn.
And that's how poor innocent Stinky Minky gets his reputations as a big meanie.
