Dogs and hoomans probably are on the same spectrum when it comes to feelings. The proof is how similar we are when it comes to reacting to certain situations.
For example, this German Shepherd named Rocky got jealous of his Bernese Mountain Dog sibling named Teddy. Rocky didn’t understand why Teddy was carried by dad but he wasn’t.
That’s probably because dad couldn’t carry you both, pet. Teddy alone took up all his strength, so he’d be a tad overwhelmed if he carried you both at the same time.
Rocky probably wouldn’t mind too much if Teddy didn’t look so smug. On top of that, the fluffy giant actually ignored his brother, who tried to get his attention too.
We’re willing to allude that Teddy meant to tease Rocky a little bit by grinning that little knowing smile. That incensed the already cross dog, so he barked with such force.
Dad became a little concerned because his pets were squabbling. They usually get along so well, so he didn’t want to be in the middle of this rare fight.
The amused owner tried to calm Rocky down by giving him pats on the head. Teddy just looked on, seemingly mocking Rocky with his smug I-got-dad-and-you-don’t smile.
Rocky would pipe down when stroked his fur, but then he’d snap at Teddy once dad turns away. The owner had no choice but to move away a bit in case things escalate.
Fortunately, dad understood that the German Shepherd was just jealous. He wanted dibs on the Bernese Mountain Dog’s gig, and we could understand why.
Don’t worry, Rocky, it will be your turn soon. Your parents just wanted to show us just how similar hooman reactions are to dogs, and he’s spot on.
We’re confident that these furry siblings sorted things out later that day. Enjoy your little fights and misunderstandings because that’s what will make you guys stronger.
