When I take baby out to play with moe she tries to stand on his back why is this and she tries to put her paws on his head is this normal or is she saying I am more domenint then you?  she is not aggresive towards him but she really don't like him by her but he has tried to...well...jump her...but she twist and wiggles her way out and then she growles at him and bites his face or leg gently..(for dogs any way) so what does every one think? is she ok  or should I be worried?

How old are both your babies? I have a 2 1/2 yr old girl and an 8 month old boy and they bite each others legs all the time and just recently started jumping each other! Im thinking they are just trying to figure out who th edominent one is because we just goy our boy about a month ago

Their just trying to find their place in the pack (their rank).  They should be fine and figure it out on their own as long as there is no real  aggression.

I wouldn't worry, there will always be a dominant dog in the pack....and will display dominant behaviors to reassure the other that he is dominant.  Anyway, yeah I wouldn't worry unless he starts trying to put his paws and himself on top of you.

Sounds like they are just playing - mine do the leg biting thing and Sophie jumps on Kane's back all the time - mostly because he'd taller and handy for her to get a better look at things.  I wouldn't worry too much about the dominance issue as you are suppose to be the pack leader and they should both follow your lead.
