Hi there. I've posted before and things have gotten so much better, but I just want to know why my dog, Bo, is possessive only some of the time. About several times a year she gets possessive over her blanket. She sleeps on one of the living room chairs and she has a blanket. In the winter we cover her, she loves to be covered. In the summer she uses it as a pillow. Anyway, when I come downstairs in the morning, I walk over to her and say hi. Most of the time she's happy to see me. But once in a awhile as I walk over, she's hovering over her blanket, giving me the side eye and growls. I learned to leave her alone. She will stay on that chair for hours and then all of a sudden she gets off the chair, forgets about the blanket and acts normal. Then, she'll be normal for months and it starts over again. Btw, she is 6 years old and gets one good long walk a day. Does any one else experience this? She also does it with her treats, but it's not as bad.
