yeah, who's the alpha-dog now?
Bella taking on the role of protector. Gracie runs like a madman possessed. Ratties are aka "suicide dogs". They will jump out windows, off balconies, run into traffic, etc. I think Bella senses how nervous I get when I let Gracie run free on the beach. She runs after her, grabs her leash and leads her back to me. Gracie doesn't seem to mind too much. It's a game.
