Sometimes we call it brotherly love… or ring-around-the-rosie… or just a fun game of doggie tag.
These are pictures of my 2 dogs, Jersey and Tenor, which make me laugh every time I view them!
“The little guy”, Tenor, is repeatedly taunting the “old man”, Jersey.
In the following pictures, Tenor was 3 months old and Jersey was 15 years old.
I’m convinced Tenor only did it because he loved Jersey’s white, fluffy fur so much. (That, and it may have been some form of “dominant” behavior that he was trying to display as a puppy.)
It wasn’t until recently that we realized Tenor was just checkin’ for Jesus all this time!
Enjoy the pictures of my 2 male dogs displaying some brotherly love…
This Isn’t The Funny Part
Trust me when I say… despite how angry and mean Jersey (the white dog) looks, he never once lashed out at the little puppy or bit him in any way. And you had to know Jersey to know that he was a little “grumpy” in his old age, and he definitely liked some space. So Jersey would bare his teeth like this even when Tenor (the new puppy) would get within 6 inches of Jersey’s personal space. Our other dog, Destin, had figured this out by now, but this was the puppy’s schooling in the early days.
Also… Rest assured, after the first few times we noticed this happening, we did everything in our power to stop it. We didn’t want little Tenor being a bully to Jersey in any way. But we photographed the first few times we saw it happening.
This Is The Funny Part
n fact, Jersey shed so much, we’d get at least a cupful every time we’d brush him.
In this case, Tenor saved us some brushing…
Round Two… Indoors!
I like to help Dog Parents find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” Dog Tips and Dog Hacks that most wouldn’t think of. I’m a lifelong dog owner — currently have 2 mixed breed Golden Aussies that we found abandoned on the side of the road as puppies. I’ve always trained my own dogs and help friends train theirs, as well. Professionally, I worked at a vet and have several friends who are veterinarians — whom I consult with regularly. (And just because I love animals so much, I also worked at a Zoo for awhile!) I’ve been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). My daily motivation is to help first-time dog owners be better prepared from the first day your new puppy enters your home. I like to help dog owners understand what’s ‘normal’ and what you can expect in terms of living with and training your dog — how to get through the ups & downs of potty training, chewing, teaching commands, getting your dog to listen, and everything else that takes place during that hectic first year! When I’m not training, walking, grooming, or making homemade treats for my dogs, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I’ve written over 600 articles for dog owners on this site! Many of them have upwards of 200K shares.
