Piggy was a bit different from the time she was born - tail first.
She was born substantially larger than the other puppies.
She originally got her name from her larger appetite, but it seems to fit her in other ways too - her pig-like tail and her selfish attitude.
She sometimes tries to take all the chew toys and not let her mother have one.
Even as a young puppy, she didn't quite seem to understand how to be a dog, and seemed to be watching the other puppies closely to learn.
When going on a walk, Inken likes to save some of her urine for marking spots along the way.
Piggy drops her urine pretty soon out the door and never marks a thing.
She also seems to be running a little late for her first heat.
Which is sort of weird for a dog that thinks she is now Alpha in other ways.
What bothers me most is her treatment of her mother, Inken.
I thought that when one dog establishes herself as Alpha, and the other dog shows submission, that the Alpha dog should back off and not keep bothering the Beta dog.
It is taking its toll on Inken.
She is sometimes wanting to hide in the cupboard, because Piggy won't let her nap.
Also, her appetite is off.
Though she needs to lose some weight anyway, I would rather it were not stress making her lose the weight.
Piggy has also during cuddly moments with us, had an abrupt mood change and growled or snapped at our faces !
We had at first wondered if Piggy were autistic, but now wonder if it might be schizophrenia.
