Sadie loved to be held and to cuddle. She did like the better things in life but also would love to roll in anything "nasty" she could find in the yard. She was the Alpha pet in our household, no matter how many or how big the other pets might be.
Our daughter adopted a male greyhound, weighing about 90 lbs. When Peanut first came to visit, Sadie was in my lap. Peanut came over, with curiosity and to sniff Sadie. When Peanut came close with his nose, Sadie bit him on the end of his nose. Peanut was terrified of her from then on and would quiver and quake when she came near. She was the Alpha!
