They actually liked having a small gang of boys around. At one point the boys were all playing the wii, engaging the dogs in things like jumping up, then the dogs started playing with each other, then they got loud like they do, and out of nowhere it was dog fight. One boy ran out the door and slammed it shut, one jumped on top of another on the chair and the two ran upstairs, mine just stood there saying “guys, it’s ok”, and I broke the beasts apart. I think it’s a b1tchy sister competetive thing, and it takes pulling them apart and keeping them from getting back into it to break it off. Then two seconds later they are normal and liking each other. Gave the boys a scare!
