"I try not to over think these things."
Their's is a relationship beyond me. On our walks, he takes control, pushing her aside when she finds a mole or bullying her into rejoining the pack when she's too far away. In the house, he wouldn't think to take away her toy, food or her bed, even if any of those belong to him. She takes advantage of his early morning potty break to take his warm spot. Her reasons, complex by Siberian genetics, have nothing to do with a warm spot and instead vacillate between "just to bug him" and "so Pop will give me more attention." You'd think he'd take what's rightfully his. Instead, if he's lucky, he'll find the tiniest corner and squeeze in next to her. Never mind that he nearly bowled her over earlier in the day for first chomp at the field mouse that she found.
A dog is infinitely more complicated than his or her behaviors.
