OMG I cannot get over how beautiful Asia is!

The girl has got spunk too! It's awesome seeing dogs come out of their shells. I'm so happy she's adjusted so well in your home with Cody and Mya! You've done a great job Melissa.

I'm pretty sure Rogue and her are long lost sisters with how similar their play is! Does she have a rhaspy howl?

Nope, but her growls when she's playing are really deep and scary sounding. It's hard to believe it comes out of that little thing Razz

As most of you know Mya is a total diva and it's been a little process with getting her used to Asia. For the past few days she does this when Asia and Kody are playing. I caught it at the end, but she'll run onto the couch (like in the video), jump off, run to the living room, and repeat.

I think she's playing, but I'm not 100% sure. Thoughts?

I'm no expert or anything but according to this chart watching Mya's body language at the beginning of the video she looks like she is showing dominant behavior. Maybe she wants to claim Asia for herself? Razz

It doesn't seem like playing to me, but it doesn't quite seem aggressive either. I think dominant is a good guess. Perhaps she's just not liking how Kody and Asia are best buddies now and feels the need to reinforce her position as boss. She was doing what I and a few others I know call "refereeing", basically saying "Hey, I'm in charge here, and I say no playing allowed! Now quit having fun so I can make you all be grouchy and bored like me!".

I'd go with trying to call the shots as well. I don't think she's doing much more than telling Kody to chill out and then blocking Asia from him.

Yeah, she referees a lot with them, but she never runs up on the couch does a zoomie and runs back up there while they're playing (she was doing that before I pulled out my phone). I think sometimes she tries to join in on the play, but when they don't pay much mind to her she does this. Like saying, if ya'll aren't going to include me then you can't play either!!!

Why can't they just play together dammit!!! She and Kody were playing like old times this morning when I was with in the other room.

Mya actually played today! Yay!

I know she sounds mean, but that's just the way she plays. Did it with Kody too!



And she ran around with them for a while too! Our yard is messy Embarassed

Yeah, she hasn't really ran around the yard since we got Asia. She used to play chase with Kody everyday, but stopped when Asia came Sad Glad that she's doing it again! She'll go running with me or REALLY run while biking, but hadn't done this in 2 months!

She just needs to remind everyone she's top dog and not at their level - Chili does this, too! She'll start again when she feels comfortable everyone knows their place in the pack. Smile

Yep, I think she's starting to feel that the pack order is "established". First time she actually played with the two without bitching at them the entire time. yay!

Awwww...such a cute video! I love seeing them play! I rarely see ours play anymore, I think they get it out at day care. Smile

Watching Mya, she's so similar to Chili - with the dominant head over Asia's body move, the pawing, hehe - so cute! Glad they're playing now!
