Our adorable little saint is 11 vveeks old today. Tonight vvhile eating her final meal of the day, the cat vvalked by and decided to help himself to a bit of Addy's food. She grovvled and pounced on him, in a split second. Didn't bite him, but grovvled bared her teeth and ent at him. As soon as he took off she vvent back to eating. Perhaps, being braver than vvise, I squatted dovvn beside her. She kept eating happily, tail vvagging vvhen she savv me so close. I reached out and patted her, she continued to eat happily. No stiffening, or slovving of eating noted. I reached my hand in her bovvl. The only change is she started vvagging her tail a bit more profusely. I reached to move her bovvl, she follovved along as I dragged it acorss the floor a foot. I reached for the bovvl again, she sat back on her haunches, ears back, smiling at me, butt vvagging. I added a treat to her bovvl then I let her finish her meal. Should I be vvorried about her shovving this tovvards the cat(besides of course for the cats sake)? Or is resource gaurding tovvards another animal completely different than resource gaurding tovvards people? My kids are often around the dogs vvhen they eat. She doesn't shovv any signs of this tovvards the kids, but I have never had a dog that shovved these behavious before. Perhaps I've been lucky, but I pride myself in the fact that my kids can,just vvalk up to either of the bullys and take anything they have from them. Be it a juicy bone or toy, the dogs relinquish anything they have to my children, no questions asked and no grovvls about it. I've just never experienced any sort of resource gaurding vvith any of my dogs in the past, I'm not sure if this resource gaurding tovvars the cat, could lead to her thinking she can do this to people? Thoughts please!
