Perhaps she saw him as the baby she never had. She would sleep with him in his crate rather than hers. If he piddled on the floor she would give him this look of "how could you?" In general he seemed to follow her lead. He learned by osmosis the cycle of the house. When it was time to wake, nap time, play time, quiet time... not to chew on the kids. I can remember her pinning him down to the ground when he began to play too rough with my then 6 year old human child. He learned by her that the dogs sat in the way back of the Expedition. He learned from her lead not to panic if we left for an hour to run an errand. He learned so much that in all honesty the second dog was sooooooooo much easier than the first. He was not an easier dog he just seemed to do well having a leader.

This does not occur in all new fur baby family additions. I grew up with a border collie that liked other dogs as long as they went home after. She was not interested in sharing anything even our attention. Each dog is different. I have personally found Boxers to be more accepting than some breeds of additions. I would say Goldens are in that catagory too. They seem to embracet the new fur baby and guide them in subtle ways of communication tht are not obvious the eye.

I must add that I never thought my female would like another dog. She was fine with relatives dogs and seemed overall gregarious. It was not until we brought the puppy to our home, they met outside that I realized she was excited to have him in our life. He followed her in and the rest is history.
this is a really nice story. Thanks.

I never thought about it but yes, Mya - who is close to 3 years, will get this opportunity to be a mom.

Well in that case.....She has 6 weeks to shape up and act more mature!!! LOL

Karma teaches Destiny everything... The good and the not so good.

When Destiny was here a week we saw something so cool. Karma and Desi finished eating, had their faces washed and were sniffing around for more. Karma went and sniffed Destiny and her butt then proceeded to nose push her to the front door. Immediately we leashed Destiny and took her out where she had a huge poop! Call me insane but I thought that was amazing!

Pheona learned a lot from Maggie. Maggie was an awesome girl from the beginning. I have days that I cry cause I will see Pheona do something & I see Maggie. Pheona has taught Murphy a lot so I see Maggie moments continue.

I think that's amazing too for the obvious reason and also because you didn't have to clean that huge poop up off your floor! lol

I am recently going through this right now. When I do training for Freya, I have Micky doing the commands as well with her. She refused to do "down" when her and I were at my mom's, but once I did it with Micky there, she was pro. We are working on "roll over" which is interesting because one dog likes to roll to the left, and the other to the right.

She is learning that there is certain behavior I like, and some I don't. Mostly because I correct Micky a bunch (barking, running with shoes, etc). She has yet to attempt the shoes, but that doesn't mean much now. Only had her for a week.

Unfortunately, the down side is Micky is forgetting how to do things as she is learning them. He has forgotten his leash manners we have worked so hard on him getting. So we are going back to square one with BOTH of them on that. It's a pain, but we will get there.

I highly encourage working with both of them on things, be it leash manners, normal manners, etc, the young one will learn from the older, and the older will remember what is expected of him.
