Brooksie created the topic: Ziva and her best friend Shiloh

So my 4 legged baby is named Ziva. She is an 18 month old German Shepherd (the dark one in the video). We dog sit for Shiloh who a 2.5 year old German Shepherd (the lighter one in the video). Shiloh and Ziva are best friends :laugh: and play non-stop while they are together. I took a video of them playing this morning for your viewing pleasure.

Before you watch let me put something in perspective since you aren't actually here to see them, Ziva weighs 65 lbs and Shiloh weighs 90 lbs. I know you can add & subtract but that's 25 lbs difference. Now check out the playing and you'll see why I pointed that out. Sorry about the quality of the first video. :unsure:



Comments are welcome!

Brooksie :kiss:

P.S. Emma is still alive and kicking. ;) But at almost 13 years old she isn't very interested in playing with these two nuts! She hangs out in the recliner sleeping most of the day.

lovely tug of war game, but it's purely establishing dominance.
We are not allowed to play these games with our dogs.
But the old Bull and Bella do the same games.




It's clear that Bella is gonna outgrow Nookie and will become the dominant female.
But now Nookie is bitten in his ear, and we went to the vets, he took the blood out, but it came back.
So now the 12 year old is not interrested in fighting, she's just grumpy...

Love and hugs for you,B! ;) :kiss:

Well, it is Ziva's house so she should be the dominate one of the house right? Truth of the matter, Shiloh is lazy as hell! Even when we play with her with Ziva, she doesn't get up, she'd rather lay on the floor and be pulled around. Funny!

Sorry about your Nookie's ear. :S Hope he's ok.

I will have to go back to the vets, drain the blood, and tape the ear shut for some time.He didn't do that last time...
I don't want to risk putting her under anaesthesia, at her age. :pinch:

Ziva is large! And so powerful.

They look like the happiest two dogs that ever played tug-of-war :)

The funny thing is that Shiloh won't play tug-of-war with the rope & Ziva unless Mike is on the other end of the rope too. It has to be a three-way! ;) It's a riot to see them play! Ziva is definitely happy. Both Ziva and Shiloh live with small dogs so when they get to spend the weekend together, they are both like little kids sitting in front of a stack of birthday presents!! SO EXCITED and jumping for joy when they see each other. They play all weekend! When they separate, they sleep for 2 days to recover!
