"I wonder if you have two balls with you that if he gets aggressive take that ball and give it to the dog wanting it and then replace it with the spare one. Do all this while he is told to sit stay so he can watch this and not be in the down stay…"
"I agree about the resource guarding. I think this is a natural behavior amongst canines while in a pack/group. I wouldnt worry too much about it unless it turns into a real 'fight to the flesh'. Some dogs will tell other dogs to "back…"
"Happy Birthday to you too Bella!!! I love balls!!!! I used to love tennis balls, but my mom took it away and replaced it with a Kong ball.
We did make it to the doodle romp and met Ruby there. Ziggy and Ruby did not seem to be too interested in each…"
"Happy Birthday Ziggy! We are ONE today! I'm getting bigger and bigger, but Mom says I'm still very much a pup. I got a new Kong Frisbee - frisbees are my "favorite", and I like my extra large tennis balls and stuffed animals…"
We are Ziggy's third and last home. I was told that his first family gave him up since their golden who had a hip surgery could not recover very well because Ziggy was too playful. His second mom got him on a whim but decided she could not keep him because she was going through some tough times.

Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
Happy Birthday Ziggy! We are ONE today! I'm getting bigger and bigger, but Mom says I'm still very much a pup. I got a new Kong Frisbee - frisbees are my "favorite", and I like my extra large tennis balls and stuffed animals too.
Sorry I didn't make it to the doodleromp (did you make it there?). My kids here have been busy coming and going with their friends. I hope you got to meet Ruby. She used to really distract me during our obedience classes, so I'll probably have to try obedience class again someday - didn't quite pass. Oh well, I'm not a scholar, but I like to play - so hope to meet up with you some other day for a romp.
Have a great day - but no chocolate cake for us!
