I got this bit of video footage this morning. Henry plays with his daughters and I was trying to catch him playing with them, but as you will see I just caught the tail end of him playing with them, but Blottie and Bumble go on to have a bit of a wrestle together. The social skill of a dog playing with another is very important. Note how they time out or stop biting so hard if one of them scream out.
I watch this and for the life of me cannot understand how anyone would wish to make dogs fight with each other viciously and wish to watch one dog kill another. Mind I cannot understand people who want to for entertainment make or watch horror movies or graphically violent movies. This is from someone who would not have a problem skinning and dressing a rabbit for their supper.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
― Samuel Butler
