|We had a sheepdog day in the park here in Atlanta where we, unbeknownst to us, met Tonks' litter mate. Tonks was spazzingout playing with this one sheepie, and we didn't think anything of it. Later in the day, I'm calling Tonks to come, and she won't respond. She's got a pretty perfect recall, so I'm getting flustered that she's completely ignoring me! I stand next to her to give her a piece of my mind, and she looks up at me and only then do I realize, this isn't Tonks! Here's a dog the exact same size and shape as Tonks with nearly identical markings, but its not Tonks. And the two were playing together like mad. While talking with the owner, we figured out that this dog (Daisy Mae) was actually Tonks' litter mate, and the two of them obviously recognized each other. It was really cool!|
I wish I had a better picture, but the two dogs running are Tonks chasing her sister Daisy Mae.
|Sweet picture and story! It must have been a very fun day for Tonks!|
|No, they don't. |
Or that's what my vet says.
I don't know more but you can google it i think
|I have wondered this too!! Heart has at least yearly get togethers with her sister and brother, Caly and Checkers...|
Caly //Checkers and Heart....
I can see that there is not much of the introductions when they come in the house (not much tusch sniffing... ) It's almost like they know they are siblings..and they (Caly and Checkers) just run in and start beating up on Heart... ...but Heart doesn't seem to mind...
A couple of month ago, in addition to Caly and Checkers visiting we had the great pleasure of having Heart's momma Dee for a week...THAT was interesting~~~~
Dino, Caly, Checkers, momma DEE and Heart....
Heart is very dominant in our house, but will respect Pearl since she IS the alpha..but when Dee was around and she would 'yell' growl at Heart..poor Heart would run to me as if the say...""" She is scaring me!!""" Again, I think they DO know!!!!lol
|I guess you are never too grown up a dog to be put in your place by your mama! I can imagine Heart's mother telling her who really was in charge that day. Loving these pictures, it is neat to look for resemblance (other than the usual poofy sheepie hair).|
|I agree altho with Aska and her siblings. |
When she met her sibling they didn't sniff at all.
And just played and snuggled ?
Maybe they do know
But my friend has 2 dogs.
A mother and her pup.
And they mate often.
What does that mean ?
|We met one of Luna's siblings recently, when she was surrendered to our rescue. (Tonks and Luna are 1/2 sisters; same sire, but 2 different mothers). Luna couldn't have been LESS interested. She had the complete opposite reaction in comparison to Tonks' experience. But Luna was the runt of the 2 litters, so I have to wonder if that had an impact. As the smallest pup by far, she seemed to have had alot of the other pups take her toys and food and such. So maybe she wasn't so excited to see a litter mate? Its funny; Luna now weighs in at a chubby 82 pounds, and her littermate was a tiny 50! She's not the runt anymore, thats for sure!|
Tonks and Luna and Sunshine hanging out while visiting with Luna's sibling Paulie:
and poor, left out Paulie. She was SO sweet!
|Allison, I LOVE that picture! Three peas in a pod!|
|I often wondered that about my Aussies. China is Asia's Aunt. Asia's mother looks almost exactly like China with the merling and blue eyes. China is 6 n Asia is 3. We adopted (re-homed) Asia when she was 9mts old. Shortly after they met the two of them bonded and have been inseparable. China was fixed and has never had puppies. The two of them are like bookends, they walk next to each other in and out of rooms, next to me, in front of me, on walks, play together ect. They lick each others ears, kiss each other and China feels she needs to "discipline" Asia when she doesn't listen to me. They sleep next to each other all the time. If you find one the other is not far away. If Asia starts playing too rough China lets her know and even though Asia is a much bigger dog then China (by about 4 inches at the withers) Asia stops and backs off. I find their relationship interesting. I've often wondered if they know they are related or just from the same breed.|
|Owen sees his brother a lot and they have a mostly indifferent relationship. Neither one is particularly excited to see one another. With these things in mind, they MUST know they're related and, like typical teenagers, don't care if they're family or not, lol. Owen sees his mom semi-regularly, too and I always think she looks at him like she can't believe that something that big came out of her. She's a tiny little bitch and Owen and his brother are almost twice her size!|
|Chewie sees his sister Martha almost all the time - they even lived w/ us for about a year. They are very close, in spite of the fact that Martha was with her breeder for the first 2 yrs of her life, and they only saw each other maybe twice in those 1st 2 yrs.|
Chewie also sees his mom, 2 sisters and 1 brother, 2 great aunts a few times a year for pretty much his entire life. (not that often, as we live 6 hrs apart) They all seem to effortlessly reunite each time. We'll see how it goes next weekend - he hasn't seen them for almost a year now......
He has another brother who he rarely sees, and it was kind of iffy if they would have gotten along - we stopped at nose sniffs. Both are intact males who have been totally separated since they were weaned.
And, at Nationals they are all going to meet another sister who lives in NY who has been gone since a pup - so this should be interesting.
Oh - they are 4 yrs old now
|Hi, I took my puppy to meet his sister a few weeks ago, they're still very young so I dont know if that helped but they definatly recognised each other. There was no sniffing just straight "HI IVE MISSED YOU" major playing (until Murphy started humping his sister ) but hey. And my other dog seemed to be like oh god not another one...|
You can see though how different Murphy and his sister are, hes the smaller black one while shes massive and very tan like her mum the german shepherd. Murphy just looks more like an oes.
