Dog Reunions Are Mixed

Max would have preferred I had left Windy with her grandma.

Windy and I returned home a few days ago.

Max lost his mind when I walked in the door; however, he was less than thrilled to see his sister.

Windy was glad to be home.

Windy dominates Max over places. Max dominates her over food. Windy has learned not to disturb him while he is eating. If Windy is in a place Max wants to be, he doesn’t challenge her for it.

Lucy, a sweet miniature schnauzer Windy met last week.

Jake is the moderator. He incites nothing. He ignores disagreements. He is a friend to both. However, if he can be sneaky with toys or treats – he takes full advantage of the situation. Windy and Max never challenge him. Somehow he is the alpha dog with the velvet paw.

Jake, who has a doctorate in animal behavior, knows how to avoid a fight.

About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
