What I want....day 12(ithink?!)...a "Beta" dog...


I'm a big fan of canines..had one ever since I was a kid...have been a beagle breeder. Love collies, shepards, chows, border collies. I currently have a 3 yr old neutered male border collie named Max...he's my best buddy. He would do anything for me, and there is nothing better than seeing the look in his eye when I scratch his ears...or feed him a steak.
I also am caretaker to a friend's properties in the area...he lives in DFW...and for his chow "Bear". Both Max and Bear know that I'm the "Alpha" dog...that I call the shots...that I'm their "go-to" guy for food, water, playtime, and excercise. They also understnd their limits, and respect my discipline when offered. You could call it "fear" in the sense of awesome respect...I respect their genetic tendency to be a dog, and they respect my authority as the Alpha leader of the "pack".
I see parallels to this in human relationships, and as we do with our canine friends and companions, we humans wrongly transgress alpha and beta boundaries in our own relationships.
I, too am guilty of this in some respects...I enjoy being the "alpha" dog, and am not sure how to be a "beta"...and I would sure like my "beta"to appreciate my "alpha" tendencies.

Some interesting food for thought....what say ye?

nikki I like that term...submissive sounds so undeserving...somehow...compromising is much more descriptive.

being the alpha anything is stressful.....constantly having to fight to keep your rank..... that is most especially true at work....
