Okay, okay, what is the point of this post you may ask? Well it is to tell you about my little Enforcer. A title that Tucker takes quite seriously, I might add.You see, in our family, I am most definitely the alpha (sorry honey!!!) and Tucker picked up on that early on. And, because he is always with me, he has decided that he is Number Two in our pack; a job he takes quite seriously. Well, he isn't technically Number Two, but he thinks he is, which is quite funny.
So what does the Number Two in a pack do??? Enforce of course! Tucker thinks that it is his job to carry out my intentions (or what he perceives my intentions are) and he carries them out well...too well.
For example, when I raise my voice at one of my kidlets, Tucker sits up, eyes and ears alert, ready to Enforce.
If I am angry and move towards one or both of my kidlets (as I frequently find myself doing), Tucker is right at my heals, growling and ready to Enforce.
If I have to manually grab one of my kidlets (as I frequently have to do to break up an argument or friendly tussle turned angry), Tucker is there, open mouthed, growling, nipping, and you guessed it...Enforcing!!!
If I get angry at Jinx (poor Jinxy!) for once again gobbling down Tucker's food, Tucker is there, ready to Enforce. And let me tell you...he becomes a 14 pound ball of fury that takes down a 55 pound ball of fur...lol!!!
Now of course, being the dog savvy owner that I am (and a kind, compassionate mother!!)I reprimand Tucker and pull him off of my kidlets and Jinxy. And don't worry, he makes more noise than bite, but if I ever have to go to battle, I know who I am taking with me...Tucker the Enforcer...lol!!
