|Bobo Moves in for the Steal|
|Now It's Bobo's Until G-Dog Steals it Away|
Our two German Short-haired Pointers, Bobo and Grendel, are as serious as 5-star generals when it comes to waging "baby wars." Strategically, each dog will lay within reach of one or the other. Sometimes, one dog will claim territory upon both.
If you want to see sleeping dogs come to life in our home, just shout, "Where's the baby?" It's energy expenditure on those cold days when we have all been confined inside. For us, it's exciting to encourage the chase; for them it's exciting to shake the babies at full gallop across the living room.
When the huskies visit, we have to put the babies away or the fighting turns gruesome. It's one thing to steal a baby from each other, but another to engage in battle with guests. The last time I put away the babies to avoid such violence, I forgot to give them back.
So the baby wars have resumed to the delight of the two GSPs on Elimira Pond. Until guests arrive, that is.
