    DefaultThe boys play rough

    I don't see how they don't hurt each other. The girls never play at this level.

    But when they are tired, they are good buddies:

    My Nellie is much rougher than Bailey. She amazes me some time.

    Jeb and Hampton play rough and the noise they make is obnixious-like walruses. They really don't bite hard (I've gotten my hand between the two of them). It's amzing no one gets injured.

    Sweet pictures. I'm always amazed at the control that lurks under seemingly rough play. With Theo and his buddies, as an experiment I have done really stupid things like put my hands in their mouths while they're playing. (Don't try this at home!--part of it was also a training exercise, to make sure that they could differentiate between dog and human skin in case I ever had to break them up.) It always seems to be mouthing--no hard bites. which is amazing given how fast their jaws are moving.

    It starts when Bruno (almost 3) gets Duke (7YO) to chase, then it goes to bitey face on the run, then wrestling on the ground. Duke is always happy to oblige.

    The yellow lab boy is Bruno who will be 3 in June. The brown shepherd mix (??) is Duke, a rescue, 7, adopted when he was 8 months old.

    Great pics. They look like they are having a good time.

    Gemma is the one that usually starts stuff and she hurts Ernie. I have to watch them bitey face as she goes down low and bites his legs so hard he yelps.
