Although I consider all of our Pomeranians my children and I spoil them rotten, I never thought I would see the day that one of my furry babies would be a selfish little brat. Like they say, “admitting is the first step”, well, our little boy Luka came to us a very possessive Pomeranian. Everything we bring into the house is his and the other dogs are not worthy of it, so he chases them away… or at least tries to. Mika sometimes has to lay a “Smackdown” on him when he gets a little too crazy… but for the most part Luka gets his way.
This past Spring when our Tortoise, Gorby, came out of hibernation, Luka didn’t leave his side. It seemed like Gorby was his little side kick all Spring and through out the Summer. The first place that Luka would go when he was let out to the backyard was to Gorby’s house… and basically Luka would bark (ring the doorbell) and Gorby would come out to play. It was fascinating to watch. If Niko or Mika would come anywhere near Gorby there was a low, visceral growl that came from the deep depths of somewhere dark emanating from Luka… sometimes it scared me… and it definitely kept Niko and Mika away. Yoki and Sophia refused to play any part of this non-sense. Pomeranians possessive
So… my Pomeranians Possessive.
One really funny story comes to mind when it comes to Luka’s possessive will, so to speak. I wanted to try out a new hair product that a friend of mine recommended and was raving about called Aussie. I have pretty much been a one hair product girl for as long as I can remember but I thought why not try it… change is always good. So I went to the website to find out more about Aussie and they were running some type of special if you bought shampoo & hair conditioner from their website they would send you a little surprise. So me being me I ordered the product… seriously just to see what the surprise would be. I know call me crazy. Pomeranians possessive
Doing what I do and my obsession with buying stuff online I get a lot of packages… so when the Aussie package came I didn’t pay too much attention… but guess who did… you guessed it, Luka. My little black bully would not let the package out of his sight… it was like he had x-ray vision. He sat next to the package all day until I decided to open it. When I did, he was jumping up and down like it was his last meal. There were packing peanuts, shampoo, and conditioner in the package so I put it down and opened the rest of my mail. Obviously, I bought shampoo & conditioner so nothing big… but I forgot about the “surprise” that Aussie promised me. Luka didn’t… or at least that’s the way it looked. pomeranians possessive
Luka jumped in the 8″ x 8″ box and found what he was looking for… a 4 inch tall Kangaroo plush toy. It was like he was waiting for that toy his whole life. He grabbed it in his teeth and paraded it around the house all day. He has since hid it so no one, not even I could find it, but every now and then I’ll notice that he has Mr. Roo on the rug. If at anytime Niko or Mika gets close to him, a slow, deep visceral growl comes out and warns everyone that Luka is now in possession of Mr. Roo.
I thought I should do something about it but in reality it makes me laugh so hard when it happens and since there are no violent outbursts, I think the value of the hilarity is better than getting him to stop it. There are probably some Pommy Mommy’s out there with some Pomeranians possessive with an attitude, if you have some parenting advice on this subject… kindly write a comment below. I would really appreciate it.
