OC & Sadie… the Cold War Goes On!

Auntie Sadie loves to play with the pups, and they with her, but after that big blowup, it’s still a bit tense around here.

Mama OC’s eye is fine now, but she’s still holding that grudge against Sadie. Mom says OC has an elephant’s memory. We watch them pretty closely and usually BG or I, or both of us will get between them if they start to fuss at each other.

Mama OC doesn’t like the pups to bump into her or crawl on her, so she just makes sure they keep their distance altogether.
BG and I will play with them a lot of times, but if they get to “nippy,” we will warn them with growls or snaps (not getting them… just scaring them.)

Grammy tells us that is just what Sadie is doing, too when they bite her, but whenever SHE does it, Mama OC takes it as a TERRIBLE AFFRONT and gets into Sadie’s face about it.

I kind of know how Mama feels, because I tend to get a bit huffy, too, with Sadie when SHE has the nerve to discipline MY kids!

You be nice to Miss Sadie. She is at a disadvantage being all big and not an actual corgi. Let her have her space. I think it is good that she talks to the kids. I mean some of them might live with a dog like Miss Sadie someday.

Your puppies are ADORABLE! I want one! And I love your portrait of Mango. You captured his fabulous folded face just perfectly. Congratulations on your award. I'd be thrilled to be included in you Kreative Blogger post. Sorry I haven't been keeping up on my blogging. My slow-speed dial-up connection is sometimes just too frustrating for me.

Glad to hear OC's eye is better!! thanking the Lord for that! its interesting how the dogs interact and let each other know what they can or can't do. I haven't been around a lot of dogs other than one at a time at home so I haven't seen this type of "behavior" before; must be fascinating to see the "pecking order" and who rules the roost so to speak!

Well, now we know!
Just wish the explanations were as easy for the dog community to understand.
Miffed feelings will take a while to fix. Those pups sure are adorable. Hope soon, that all will be peaceful in corgi kingdom!
