Communication Problems

STINKY and I have communication problems. Basically, when I want to play with him inside, he acts like a chicken, and when I'm busy sniffing/leaving pee mails outside, he's non-stop biting my face (unless mum stops him).

This is us at home. I do admit, I am more stern with him inside the house than out on neutral territories. I make sure he knows who the boss is inside, but really, I was only trying to get him to chase me. You know my favouritest game - the keep away game, the everybody wants what Miss Sunshade has game, the I feel so special game? So I threw the ball in front of him hoping he would try to go for the ball, and as soon as he makes his move, I was gonna grab the ball and run and the chase would be on.

But NOOOOOOOO... he chickened out! (please ignore mum's embarrassing's my mum, what can I say..)

What can I say, I'm a very vocal girl, I make all kinds of noises (growl, grumble, moan, etc) to let people know what it is I wanted. STINKY mistaken my growls as yet another "lesson" from me. SIGH...

Now, this is us outdoors. Once we stepped outside of our property, he becomes my pack member to protect. I don't allow other dogs to pick on him, and I'm always around when strangers are petting him. I let him get away with almost anything, and he KNOWS it and takes full advantage of my leniency.

(okay, I gotta warn you, you're just basically watching us walking, it might get boring...)

Oh dear, I can't work out who I feel more sorry for. Jaffa does cut a pretty sad picture in the first video - all meek & submissive hiding in the corner, but you have the raw deal for him to be hanging off your face the whole time on walkies!

Hmm, maybe I don't want that little sis I've been pestering mum for.

Did you see I had a new little Airedale friend? Myabe Jaffa & Mitch can teach him stuff.

You know I bark at Flash that way when I want him to play and like stinky he thinks I am trying to give him a lesson. Sometimes little brothers are not very bright.

sunshade, you terrified jaffa in the first video! LOL but he was wagging his tail all the time. it's like he wanted to go after your ball ball and scared of you at the same time. it's just too funny.

Jaffa needs to stop being such a woos and play with you Sunshade! Mitch would! No question and he'd give you a run for your money too!
You guys walking is just such a familiar story. I'd swear it was us!

Love ya lots,

Poor Jaffa! He looked so sad in the first video, I felt bad for him. It was good to see him having some fun on the walk. Emmy and I always mess with each other when we go for walks- it's part of the fun- hee hee!When does Jaffa get to go to his new home?
Big Wags,

Wow, Sunshade you really are scaring poor Jaffa. You don't like him that much do you? But you're the dominant one in the house so you have your right to tell him what's yours & what's his. LOL!

Love licks,

Sunshade, Lola does the same thing on our walks...bothers me the whole time while I'm trying to pee on stuff! She bites my ears & jumps on my head & I just usually ignore her. But at home...she knows who's boss.


Avery said...

Wow Sunshade, you appear to be very tolerant of Jaffa while you're walking together. I'm impressed!

By the way, my mom wants to know what kind of harness you have and where you got it. She wants to get me one and likes that yours has a handle on it.
