Out of my way Squirt!

Chocolate Lab Siblings Playing: Dakota & Chey
It seems we have a bit of canine sibling rivalry stirring up in the Lab Brats house...

While giving some much needed love to Cheyenne last night, Dakota decided to come over to me and push her sister out of the way. I know this may be the norm in some dog households across the globe but our dogs have been trained to wait their turn. That is why this is so... well, odd. Well, that and the fact that Cheyenne used to be the one to push her way into the area whenever we gave love to Dakota.

Of course, we ignore the one that pushes into the action and continue to give love to the one we already had our attention on. But, it is quite difficult when 83lbs of Lab "innocently" pushes 70lbs of Lab to the side and out of reach of the mommy or daddy. *laugh* When Dakota wants to get noticed, she has a way of using her size to her advantage.

But, for the life of me, I can't figure out why Dakota has become so "needy" all of a sudden. Whenever we give love to one, we always give love to the other. Whenever one gets petted, the other will sit quietly on the side and wait for their petting. This is an equal doggy love opportunity house and the love is never short. So why is our big mush all of a sudden being a naughty, but non-aggressive, big sister?
