Role Sharing – Positive Play Sign

One of the most lovely things about watching positive play between dogs is their desire to make the games fair – even though one of them might have a significant advantage (eg size).  Have you ever seen a game of tug o’ war between an older/bigger dog with a puppy/smaller dog?  When the play is positive, you will see the puppy or smaller dog allowed to win, despite the advantage of age or size from the other dog.  Dogs know that for a game to be fun, everyone needs to have a turn at winning.  🙂

Meet Sidney Beagle – he’s our Laughing Dog of the Day.  Sidney is 11 years old, but he still enjoys to get about with the less senior members of the crew! In typical Beagle style, Sidney’s nose is often to the ground in serious sniffing mode.  Sidney is a bit of a talker – though he never barks – there are plenty of aroorooroo’s! 🙂
