A True Friend

Dakota and Chase usually finish all of their food in one sitting, but every once in a while they don't want to eat it all right away, so they leave it and go elsewhere in the house until they are ready to eat again. Whenever this happens, Chris and I have noticed that they will guard each other's food. Last week Dakota didn't finish her food, so Chase laid by her bowl and guarded it from the other dogs. Last night Chase didn't finish his food, so Dakota guarded it for him. Any time another dog came close, she would get closer to his food to make sure they didn't get any closer. She even put her face into the bowl of food when Simba got too close. Dakota didn't eat the food, she just laid her face in it so no one else would try to eat it. 

Chris and I think it is so funny and cool that Chase and Dakota have this unspoken agreement to guard each other's food. I wonder what made them do this and why they don't just give in and eat the food instead of guarding it. Maybe it's their Rottweiler instincts taking over or maybe it's because they just love each other so much? Either way, you know you have a true friend when they guard your food without eating it.
