I haven't written very much at the board about this (although Laura is all too familiar with the situation) but we have a Paddy vs Flynn struggle for alpha that is ongoing. Paddy doesn't care about alpha thing but it means the world to Flynn. Oh, Pad will "warn" Flynn off but Flynn ignores Paddy.

Sometimes, not often, but sometimes Flynn will lay down respectfully and quietly alongside Paddy. Psssssh. I think it's respectfully. I guess Paddy knows better and he snarls and gruffs at Flynn who raises those outlaw eyes of his... "Whooooo, meeeeee?!?"

I just ordered Flynn to show some respect. I actually shook my finger at him and said those words! Do you know what he did? Do you?!? He gave me one of these: ;D

Gawwwwwwwwd!

That Flynn has way too much personality which is why I love him. :)

I think that grin was his idea of the doggie finger, Nance.

The "doggy finger"..... that makes me LAUGH !!! We have a wee bit of the testosteron (sp?) going on here from time to time too..... mostly it's when somebody is in somebody elses "spot" on the couch....... Sherman gives it the low growl....... (that's MY spot and I want it NOW)...... Charlie Brown, gives a shrill loud BARK ( OKAAAYYYY........ grumpy !) and slinks down off the couch.............. boys will be boys....

Paddy doesn't seem to care. Yeah, right. It appears that way because he IS the alpha. Flynn acts the way he does because he is the alpha wannabe. I had the same thing between Tina and Holly, 2 of my Irish.

I agree, Paddy does care - otherwise he'd back down and let Flynn take over alpha position. Flynn is challenging him without being overt about it so you don't step in and shut him down. When you do, he knows he's been caught red-pawed, hence the doggie finger! ;D

Paddy's way up there on the totem pole.
