This is Chubbs being a 4 month old annoying puppy and not really getting personal boundaries yet! It's a pushy play move "LOOK AT ME!! SEE ME!! I'M HERE!!!" - I see it a lot in bullies, and Henry is old enough to know that Chubb's is a puppy so he'll just ignore him... FOR NOW. (until Chubb's puppy pass expires!)
Yeah, Chubbs is wanting to be noticed - please, please, please sniff my butt.... and Henry - like an indulgent grandpa who's really not wanting to interact - is being nice by turning his head away instead of giving the pup the warning growl. They should balance out after a while - either Chubbs learns a bit more discipline or Henry gets to be more of the disciplinarian. Either way, it's all good.
Haha. Henry has definitely already given the warning growl & is the disciplinarian when we visit them. Thanks.
