Theft

At home, Baron the GSD, often exhibits his "herding instincts" by madly tearing after Simba the cat. This occurs whenever Simba ventures across the floor. It lasts until the cat leaps up on a chair or table. Then the roles immediately reverse as Simba adopts his lion demeanor, fiercely defending his perch, until the offending dog slinks away, well chastened. As you can see in the picture, this situation did not fit in either category, as became apparent when Baron looked at me and said, "Hey Boss, he stole my snoozing pad, now what do I do?"

  1. Poor Baron. That darn cat stealing his bed. He is ruining his reputation letting Simba take over. I think you need to have a long talk with him and "man him up" so he can learn how to show who is the real boss around there. Good luck though. He seems to be more of a lover than a fighter!

  3. Serves him right for harassing that poor cat. Simba needs to assert his authority or the dog will be completely out of control.

  5. Just park it on top of the cat. That is my advice to you, my friend,

  9. Sweet photograph. The look on Baron's face is priceless. Cats never play fair...it's just not in their nature.

  11. Great story! What does GSD mean? I have two cats and a dog--one cat is treated with a distant respect and the other is now getting "respect your elders respect." The cat is 16. The dog used to growl if the cat got too close.
