Somebody has to keep the puppies in order

Border Collie sheepdog puppy Audrey asserts her authority over younger pup, Dennis
OK - OK - You have the toy then! (Click to enlarge).

Young Audrey, the red and white bitch pup is beginning to assert her authority over the younger puppies lately. This morning, she showed Dennis that the toy is hers by right, whenever she chooses.

At the moment, she has seven weeks' seniority over Dennis (b. 14th November 2011) but soon, the young male will be much bigger and stronger than she is.

It will be interesting to see which of these two will be the boss a few months from now. Hopefully, both Audrey and Dennis will appear on our long awaited new sheepdog training DVD (available autumn 2012).

We'd love to read your comments -
