Re: Do your dogs play games together?
Keeta, (approx 4 yrs?) and Falkor (almost 5 mo) play games!
And you are right! they are so much fun to watch! One will invite the other one to chase with those type of tactics. Falkor will pick up a toy and run up to Keeta, do a play-bow, and run away, looking back to see if she is chasing. If not, he will do it over and over and over again until she does get up and chase.
Sometimes, they tussle over a squeekie toy. Then I see that Falkor has it, and he runs up and down the halway squeeking it away! Then he runs back to Keeta, and another tussle ensues, now Keeta has it, and she is running up and down the halway, squeeking and prancing all proud of herself, then back to where Falkor is waiting for her, another tussle, Falkor has it, runs the obligatory victory lap down and back and runs back to Keeta, and so on. Really really cute!
I had the same concerns about Keeta and getting another dog as nysirk. I don't think that Keeta had been well socialized with other dogs, and her "play" was jumping on another dog and grabbing their neck, and dominating them. Her energy overwhelmed even other strong confident dogs who wanted to have nothing to do with her. So it is so satisfying to see her tone down her play and allow the puppy to roll her and jump on her, LOL! But she clearly enjoys it!
