The leader of the pack

On the message boards for the local greyhound group, there's been a discussion about dominance in dogs--dogs asserting their dominance, owners maintaining control from the dominant position, etc.

So Jacey picks today to challenge the existing pack structure of me > her > Sam.

I got up to go to the kitchen for some ice--and Jacey is operating under the mistaken idea that it's dinner time. She raced ahead to the kitchen
door, jumped up and down, came back to me, jumped up and down, then got behind me and PUSHED (her head against my butt). I was moving slowly as I tried to work a kink out of my ankle.

I didn't move faster. And I didn't feed either dog when I got to the kitchen, so I'm still the top dog around here.

For now.
