My husband and I are quickly learning that big dogs and little dogs have very different needs. Both of our dogs have a lot of energy and enjoy wrestling with each other. However, Belle can be a bit much for little Chloe. The hardest thing for me has been learning not to run and grab Chloe every time they get rough with each other. Has anyone else struggled with this urge to protect your little dog and felt guilty for breaking up their play?
Overall, Belle has been a great big sister! Surprisingly, she has learned to use her little sister to her advantage. If Belle has something she is not supposed to and we tell her to "drop it", she will move close to Chloe and drop the item in front of her. Chloe will then pick the item up and run as fast as her little legs will carry her under a piece of furniture so that we cannot get it. Belle will go and get the item from her after she thinks we forgot about it. Does anyone have any stories of their dogs scheming together?
