The Jealous One

Oreo is a jealous dog.  He wants the girls' attention all the time.  If they are not playing with him or petting him, Oreo sits close to them.  When they eat breakfast, he sits between their chairs and the breakfast bar.  If they play Wii, he sits on the floor near them.  He cannot be close enough to them.  They are his girls. 

Since the girls are off on break, they had several play dates at our house.  This made Oreo a bit crazy.  When they closed the door to play in their room, he sat outside whining for a few minutes.  It wasn't a bark and it wasn't a howl.  It was a completely different sound that can only really be described as a whine.

When they went into the basement to play dolls, he paced the house trying to figure out how to go down with them.  When he finally did calm down, he plopped himself in the middle of the living room rug -- right above where they were playing.

Even attention from me and my husband didn't make it any better.  He wanted his girls and wasn't happy until their play date left.

When we brought him home nearly four month ago, we really hoped he would get along with the girls.  I guess we have our answer now.

Dogs want their whole pack together. So glad Oreo has adopted your girls! We got beagles when our younger son was little. He loved to roll around on the floor while one of them licked his face!
