Definitely interesting........Before joining the Military I had a female GSD with six pups. She loved me to death. Gave them all to relatives. During the Military had a pair of Chows, (for 17 yrs) and didn't want to show a preference to GSDs so I waited till they passed. The Male, Ky-Lin was pretty much a perfect dog, even with children and he was special. The female, Sasha, was a very close second. BUT....... she went above and beyond to show her love for me. She would due a ton of things either differently or just for me. If I was dating and that person came over to the house and we were or went to sit on the couch, Sasha would get between us and nudge her a little to the side. Everywhere I was, Sasha was. Ky-Lin was an awesome dog and we had a great, strong bond but at times he was content just by himself. If we were in the truck Ky-Lin wanted to be in the bed. Sasha wanted to be up front. At night, in bed, Ky-Lin could be anywhere, Sasha, attached to my hip or feet.
Now the GSDs; Reiker just turned 10 in March and up to three years ago in April he was the only one and did everything with me. Now due to the girls everything is divided at times. But the girls thrive to please me, thrive to be with me and go everywhere do everything. Doesn't matter if I'm in the house, outdoors or in the truck the girls want to be there. At my feet, at my side! Now, Reiker loves to go for a ride, loves to train, loves to be outdoors, loves to run. The girls just love it a little more with more intensity! The girls will stay on the bed the entire time. Reiker will be down on the floor at the ends or sides or downstairs. What's funny is the girls will jockey to see who can be closest to their Master. Nudge the other right out of Poston to be at my feet. It's almost like they are competing for me. Working, training, playing, running harder, faster, longer! Awesome but a little funny at the same time. I say over and over when you have multiple dogs it it so much easier to see them doing everything but especially proving, displaying themselves and their individualism.
