It’s a dog MEET dog world

My granny and granddad recently got another dog to keep their old dog (Nina) company. He’s called Wes and very bouncy. He has this gang of big dogs which we like to call the thug pups. They’re all big, bouncy and babies.

This got me thinking about dog behaviour. I know that the smaller the dog, the more vicious they’re going to be. Wes is terrified of little dogs and one time on this walk this CHIHUAHUA drove the big dogs away. The funny thing is, dogs like Great Danes and German Shepherds are big dogs and they will only sniff your legs and leave you alone (mostly).
