Anyone who lives with a pack of dogs knows they are just like kids. They get jealous over toys, they get jealous over beds, they can be spiteful, and they can be so compassionate your heart will melt.
We have a toy bin……yes, a toy bin of stuffed and chew toys. We have a collie puppy. He must first empty the bin every single time before he chooses the one he wants. Of course, the others make their selections too. I find toys hidden in their favorite corners, like pirate doubloons.
They make “dibs” over beds and blankets too. It reminds me of shotgun…….who calls it first, gets it ………..
This is Bud……he is a shepherd, perhaps, rottie, perhaps dobie, perhaps anything mix. He tips the scale at a rather portly number. But he likes to sleep in my toy poodle’s bed. Like I said, a bunch of jealous kids fighting over who gets the favorite toy………:-)
As you can see, his selected choice of toys are nearby.
