This evening when I transferred the dog food from the bag to the decanter, I spilled some of the kibbles on the floors. Our 2 dogs was standing between me when the kibbles started to drop on to the floor. Teddy our 4 years started to lick up the kibbles. Santa however just stand and watch he made no attempt to approach the kibbles.Eventually, she just lay down and watch pathetically Teddy enjoying the kribbles . He is obeying cardinal rule of the all mighty pecking order.
Watching Santa with his pathetic look I picked up some of the kibble and put it in front of him between his front pawls. He started to lick one and look at Teddy, seeing no adverse reaction, he started to lick up the rest.
This invisible doggie rule make me understand how pack lives together peacefully. I am wondering, has Human lost this invisible rule, of respecting the elders.
