This is Flash, in case you aren't familiar with my babies.
He is about 4 1/2 years old, and we've had him since he was a very small pup, smaller that my miniature doxie at that time.
Until recently, he resided in the house, but my older dog and him got to fighting and since the older one is about 12 years old and 30 pounds, he stays inside, and Flash was moved outside. I bought him a dog crate to sleep in, but he's never gone inside it at all.
Recently, we purchased a new recliner, and moved the old one out on the porch, to haul off.
Before we could get it moved off the porch, Flash decided he liked it, and homesteaded , complete with his blanket. At first, Buddy would go in the crate, but soon, he decided he wanted in the chair with Flash, which worked out fine. But shortly, he decided it was more comfy without Flash, so he wouldn't let him in the chair.. .
We started hearing scratching on the door, and thinking that Buddy was ready to come in, we'd open the door to find Flash standing there, and Buddy in the chair. No he isn't wanting in, he's telling on Buddy for being a chair hog. It's funny, seeing a huge 80+ pound Pit/Boxer/Lab mix dog telling on a little 11 pound short legged thing, who he could easily pull right out of the chair.
And, for the kicker, when I try to remove the chair hog, he growls at me, not wanting to give up the spot.
