Kane, our younger GSD, is nearly 13 months old. My sweet, obedient, easygoing boy has hit the teenager stage, hard. Here are some of his latest tricks: Aggravating Kitty to no end. He doesn't mess with KiKi (she doesn't fight back). He likes getting clawed and bit in the face apparently. Opening the refrigerator. The dish towel that was hanging on the frig. door handle and enabling him has been relocated. Stepping on the foot petal to the trash can and pulling out whatever he can get his mouth on. Waiting until Mama makes the bed, then sneaking in there and messing it all up again. Watching for Mama to sit in her chair and then throwing every bit of his 100 lbs. in her lap. Whining and talking about everything, all day long. Counter surfing the kitty's table to knock their food dishes down (at least he cleans up the mess he makes). One of us is not going to survive this stage.
