dog pecking order

“I am really busy with school, as is my girlfriend.

We are also busy with work, and sometimes it’s difficult to take care of them.

We often discuss which one of us will do the last walk at night because we are both tired and want to go to sleep.

It’s always me, but she does the morning walk, so it all works out.

Having dogs has brought a calmness to our relationship.

Anubis and Dima are the center of attention, as opposed to smaller issues that don’t seem so important anymore.

The joy and responsibility they bring to us, definitely makes us feel more like a family.”

“Dima (the Pomsky) always looks like he’s smiling and it makes me want to grin too.

Anubis (the Chion) loves everybody and was excited to make a new friend when we brought Dima home.

Dima takes time to warm up to people and it took him time to get used to living with Anubis.

Now, they love each other and he even lets Anubis in his crate.

He knows Anubis always wants to be near someone.

They are best friends.”

BUDDY & OZZIE, The Rescue Beagle and Hound Dogs That Keep Each Other Company (PART 5)

“I didn’t know what beagles were like so I had no idea what energy they have.  I thought because he was a little bit older that he would be calm.  I tried to keep him contained in a pen and that didn’t work.

Once I put him on the patio while I was cleaning the floor and he broke through the plastic screen covering a window, so he made his own doggie door.

Buddy is more concerned with what I am doing and Ozzie is concerned with what Buddy is doing.

The only scare I had with Ozzie was when he ate chocolate pudding, but he was okay.

There was never any jealously between them.  They know their pecking order.”
