This is, quite frankly, one of the funniest comments I've seen on this board in a long, long time. Dogs are incapable of "brainwashing." That requires a kind of inscrutible, twisted mental manipulation only seen in untrustworthy creatures such as humans.Originally Posted By: JohnPro Is buddy brainwashing them
Quote:We wanted a replacement for buddy because he was getting old so that's when Xena gave birth to Max.
So Xena was a "pre-teen" when she became a mother? She would have been bred at 7 months and given birth at 9 months. One answer would be she never had a chance to grow up and mature. If she has weak nerves that would affect Max as well.Quote:Xena barks a little and max doesnt even care about the people outside. Xena is about 2 and a half years old and max is about 1 year 9 months.
It may simply be that he's never had a reason/need to do it. As long as Xena and Buddy have things under control, his role in this family structure is to do just what he's doing ... growing up, learning to play and love his family.Quote: The youngest dog (Max) seems to do nothing but play. He is almost 2 years old and I was wondering why he shows no guarding ability at this particular time.

John, treat your dogs like you love them.
