Last week, MIL told me that Seth (Harveys brother) had taken to 'attacking' her door mat, he would just scratch it all up until it was in a heap. He done it 3 times.
This week, Harvey has done the same thing to my door mat...3 times. Neither of them showed any interest in the mat before this.
Then today, we were walking the boys, Harvey was on the lead, Seth was off the lead. Harvey had been acting odd and kept stopping and looking behind. There was nothing there. Seth was way ahead, but harvey stopped one time and refused to move. Seth came up to him, they got nose to nose for about 3 seconds, they Seth took off in the direction Harvey kept looking in. Once he was happy there was nothing there, he came back, went nose to nose again, then Seth went back to his previous activities and Harvey never looked back again.
I would love to know if they are actually communicating things to each other and if they have a stronger 'connection' as they are brothers.

My horses will go nose to nose and then both of them misbehave (play hard to catch). ..it ONLY happens after they go nose to nose.
Hmm.. that's weird. I wonder if possibly there was a bug or something under one of your doormats once before??
The door mat thing sounds like a nesting instinct; Mine do that (not necessarily to a door mat) and don't even lie down on the heap they created'
The nose to nose behavior really sounds like communication, maybe not ESP, but Seth may have picked up on Harvey's body language and checked it out for him. Mine sometimes do the nose touch and I always wonder what it's about. I like to think of it as a sign of affection.
