Mornin, Y'all... I have found that 'females rule' round this house and it
tickles me each time I become aware of this... The Des pointed this out to me
the other day when I put down breakfast for the puppers...
Precious (The Des' cat of 8 years) stands in line and meows like she's been starved for YEARS as she hears the can opener... Behind her will be YogiBear and Rogaine - all at safe distances and BooBooDog will be 'watchin' from a good vantage point...
Precious will allow any of the puppers to 'share her bowl' but if any of 'the boys' get too agressive, she just turns and looks at them... Even
"I'm the house protectorate" YogiBear keeps one eye on Precious and one eye
on the food~!!...
YogiBear seems to have this one foot 'no-fly zone' around him and anything he doesn't want any of the other puppers to touch...
But BooBooDog?... She's dumb like a fox... She'll wait and watch and then growl like a momma grizzly bear if she's absolutely sure there's something she
The only one in the house that BooBooDog really bows to is
Precious... As The Des says, "you mess with the cat, you go down like dat,"
and she's absolutely right... However, if the doorbell rings or someone makes
any aggressive actions towards me, YogiBear and Rogaine will bark (and nip)
like they are the kings of the hill around here..
Rogaine is the biggest of the puppers now, but the most whimpy of the three... YogiBear is next in line in size, but BooBooDog?... She's still the tinest of the three and probably will be... But size does not matter regardless...
When I let the three of the puppers out in the backyard, she 'rules' as The Des says... She's still a gazillion times faster than 'the boys' and they try to outsmart her every day... There's a built-in brick BBQ pit we never use on the patio and the three puppers play 'ring round the BBQ pit' every day...
I have stood at the patio door and laughed until I made myself ill, watching 'the boys' trying to catch BooBooDog... The boys each will guard one side of the BBQ pit and she'll outsmart them every time... If not in the mental process, she'll do it in speed... They've never managed to catch her yet!...
And yet?... When she tires them out, she'll almost taunt them... Like 'come and catch me if you can, you wussies!'...
She's developed into 'my problem' though... She's a mudder and will always find a mud hole to get into or dig into the dirt if she's left unobserved... Leave something laying 'round and she'll be the one that finds it and chews it up!...
I used to automatically blame Rogaine for whatever shoe I'd find chewed (and they're ALWAYS mine for some reason!) or the pantry door opened and the cookies dragged out, but now I look first for BooBooDog and her role in the current
'UT OH'... She's smart ~~ yes, she is... She'll pull something out, drag one
underneath the couch and out of sight while 'the boys' are always caught with
whatever they're not supposed to have... LOL...
Yeppers, the females rule in this house... Don't have to be the 'biggest and baddest' round here to rule the roost, that's for sure!
As Always, Stay Safe, The Lady
