Until Willie Came, This was My Trouble Maker

She is tiny and cute and fluffy and EVIL: She is Milly!

All speed and bite and absolutely no manners. Every time Sadie went after a tennis ball, Milly would chase and bite Sadie on the bum. Now, Sadie wants a ball thrown almost a quickly as she retrieves it - she sometimes has a problem with releasing the ball to me and that is the only thing that slows down her game of fetch. I thought Sadie was going to let Milly just have it one of these times and in fact she did. In the past, Sadie showing her teeth, growling and generally looking pissed off has deterred every other dog that messed with her tennis ball. Not Milly, she went right back to treating Sadie's right flank like it was the tennis ball and needed retrieving.

Needless to say, Sadie and Milly don't get to be on the same side of the play yard now.

Milly treats all the other dogs in pretty much the same way as she did Sadie, a lot of chasing, a lot of nipping, and WAY too much barking. Fortunately, I have Tessie and Davey, who both suffer from the exact same style of playing.
