We are ‘tending’ our son’s two dogs tonight. He and his girlfriend have a Yorkie and a Dachshund. They are both females. They used to get along just fine, but we’ve decided since the Dachshund went into heat a few months ago, she’s determined to become the Alpha dog and is starting fights with the Yorkie…. but it only seems to happen when they come to our house. At home, they seem to get along just fine most of the time. I guess they are fighting for their Mom and Dad’s attention when they are in ‘public’ (meaning, our house…). However, since my son and his girlfriend left for the evening and will be gone for the next 24 hours…. they seem to be getting along fine. What is it with the dogs and fighting for attention? Ok…. I take it back…..so maybe they aren’t getting along….. I guess now they are fighting for OUR attention. You know, it wouldn’t be quite so bad, but we have two other dogs around the house too. YIKES! What’s a Mother (or in this case, Grandmother) to do?
