One thing I think is really cool about dogs is that they are all different. Even if they are the same breed, from the same parents, they can have completely different personalities. This is especially true with Mauja and Atka.
Mauja and Atka have been perfect together. They have bonded and truly love each other. However, they are completely different dogs! Here are just a few ways Mauja and Atka differ from each other.
Mauja: “Eh, do I have to get up? Can you just bring it over here? No? Okay, I’m not hungry.”
Atka: “FOOD TIME IS THE BEST TIME!”
Mauja: “I’d rather sleep. Please don’t put that harness on me! Ugh, fiiiiiine. I’ll go.”
Atka: “WALK TIME IS THE BEST TIME!”
Mauja: “Can you lift me into the car? Here, I’ll put my front paws up to help out. Now, hoist my butt up.”
Atka: *eagerly hops into the car* “Don’t you worry about me. I got this.”
Mauja: After 10 minutes of chewing, “I’m bored. Better just sleep on this treat and get it stuck in my fur.”
Atka: Must eat treat super fast so I don’t lose it!!
Mauja: “Little dogs are the best and I just love them. I don’t really like to play anymore – I’m far too mature for that.”
Atka: “OTHER DOGS ARE THE BEST AND I CAN’T CONTROL MYSELF!”
Mauja: “Yes, give me pets. Okay, that’s enough, thanks.”
Atka: “I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you!”
Mauja: “MUST BARK!”
Atka: “MUST BARK (or maybe yodel!)”
Mauja: “Why are you trying to kill me?!”
Atka: “Maybe if I roll around and act super cute she’ll let me alone.”
Mauja: “Again, why are you trying to kill me?”
Atka: “THE VET IS THE BEST PLACE EVER!”
I wish they could talk so I knew how they sound, but I think I do a pretty good job of imagining it 😉 There are many, many ways in which Mauja and Atka differ, but these were just a few of my favorites.
If you have multiple dogs, how do they differ?
