Gotta love stubborn dogs. Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em.
In our house, it's always a matter of wills. Ein knows perfectly well who's boss, but every so often he has to be reminded. The boy just loves to test his limits.
Can I get away with stealing Tucker's rawhide without mommy or daddy seeing?
Oooh! Tucker just put his carrot down. If I grab it real quick, I wonder if I can eat it before mommy or daddy has time to finish saying, "Ein! Drop it!"
Yes, you may rub my belly sometimes because you are the boss, but if I'm not in the mood, I reserve the right to turn into Mr. Grumbles. Ditto when it comes to touching my butt.
I can't be mommy and daddy's boss, but I can still be dominant over Tucker.
