A puppy at heart ...
It is strange isn't it. I wonder if this is a generational thing.

But just as a young cat or dog is on a constant mission to find thrilling new experiences, the older pet is quite content letting the world go by: seen it all, chased it all, tasted it all and heard it all before!
The golden rule must be to let them fully explore these new avenues until they are satiated. Then to introduce them to a wider and more enduring experience, but only when they are ready.
