Not the same thing really, but it got me to thinking about when my ol' Basset Hound, Dan, was alive, Eddie used to bug the crap out of him. There were a few occasions that Eddie would "attempt" to full out attack Dan. Of course, I was right there to stop it...but Eddie wouldn't let Dan eat or anything. Eddie couldn't even be in the HOUSE when Dan was eating. We had to tether Eddie outside because even hearing Dan eat, Eddie would fly off the handle. I did my best to just keep the two separate. When I added Uallis to the household, Eddie changed toward Dan a bit. If Uallis would get close to Dan, Eddie would body block Uallis from getting close to him. It was almost like Eddie was trying to "protect" Dan from Uallis, although Uallis was NEVER aggressive in the least toward Dan (Uallis was just a little puppy at that time). It was evident that Eddie didn't want Uallis near Dan at all and Eddie started respecting Dan's space a little more. But Eddie did make it clear to Uallis that Dan was "off limits" so Dan and Uallis really had no interaction with each other. I don't even think that I have a picture of Dan and Uallis together because Eddie would correct Uallis for showing Dan any interest. When Dan passed, it hit Eddie hard. Dan passed at home and I remember Eddie barking at Dan's body. He was VERY upset and stressed. He was a little depressed for about a week or so and would even walk over to Dan's grave like he wanted to make sure it was ok. It was really heartbreaking for me to see Eddie grieving because I know he was.
