Just about one month ago exactly my sister Melody found Phoenix while she was out looking for Allie. I blogged about it here.
Yesterday she sent me a few pictures, as well as a status update. I looked at these, then I went back and looked at the pictures Melody sent a month ago. It’s hard to believe it’s the same animal.
Melody writes, “Phoenix (understandably) takes food VERY SERIOUSLY. So we’re trying to help him realize that there WILL be enough for him AND the other dogs. . . . Food aggression. . . oye!
Also, although he doesn’t know how to play fetch or ball, he does like to “have and to hold” Achilles’ ball. And when Achilles comes over hoping to get it back, he growls and shows him his teeth, so we’re working on that too.
For the record, Achilles is her young German Shepherd. At last count she has Achilles, Gaby, and Phoenix (German Shepherds) and Mugsy (a Miniature Dachshund, who believes she rules the roost). So far everybody’s getting along reasonably well, except for the food thing.
