Alpha Dog!?!

Yesterday was the day of the Alpha Dog. Cowboy's friends were here and he certainally turned into an Alpha Dog. No huggy, kissy, smoochy Cowboy for me. He was all about establishing his dominance in front of his friends. "Hey, woman do this..." "Hey, woman, do that"...Okay maybe not that bad. When I called him on it yesterday morning, he said he had to let his friends know who is boss. Macho ego gets in the way sometimes. It has to be a boy thing.


After they left, I told him that since they were gone, he could go back to being himself. He did. I got dinner served to me and he cleaned the kitchen. What a good Cowboy!



The other Alpha Dog of the day was my dear lovely goofy Sadie. Since she has been getting up on the couch, bed, etc. We have decided that she can stay in the basement area when we are gone. Yesterday, she decided that she didn't like the basement area and showed us how much by chewing up the door jam. I have no idea what will happen next. The war of wills is now on....

Oh your Cowboy is a funny boy. You know his friends didn't buy that he was in charge. :)

P.S.
I love that picture of Sadie. It's as if she is saying "I have no idea what you are talking about."

I think Sadie was trying to get the heck outta town, 'cause she knew Cowboy was pushing some wrong buttons!!! You know, dogs can often sense when an earthquake is coming .... or when all heck is gonna break loose!!!

LOL!!
