How to Deal With Your Crazy Little Sibling - Buffy's Dog Tips
Woof! Woof! Hello, you guys! As you all may know, my little sister is a bit of a nutcase. She's either possessed or mental.

I know you've all been there. Getting a new sibling and suddenly you're in an alternate reality.

Mommy says Fluffy was exactly what we needed. Why? She balances us out. Mommy and I are introverts and it's hard for us to be around a lot of people.

Fluffy does not have that problem. She's super friendly with everyone and her craziness is an asset. In turn, her personality rubs off on us so we are a bit crazy too now.

Unfortunately, her craziness has no bounds. There should be some limit but none exist with Fluff.

I've had to learn to navigate the crazy and thought I'd share some Buffy tips for those doggies that have nutty younger siblings too.

Here's how to handle a crazy sibling

1. Don't engage when the crazy level is high

Fluffy goes through levels of crazy. I had to observe and figure out when it increases, then retreat.

Sometimes she runs fast and jumps on me then forces eye contact. I have to look away and make like I'm not bothered by her.

I'll then go sit by the gate and pretend to look at people and cars. This is my life, you guys. Sometimes she stands on me by the gate to see better. Yep! I'm a stepping stone! Help me!

2. Sleep really late

I don't think Fluffy ever sleeps. Well, maybe she's a light sleeper. At night she's very busy doing stuff and she's still busy when the sun is up. The later I sleep, the better.

Once she sees I'm awake she forces me to play with her. If I don't I get yelled at really loud.

Eventually, I'll give in and chase her around a bit, we wrestle while I pull her around by her hair. What?! Hair pulling is her favorite game!

3. Move her focus to mommy

When mommy is around Fluff does not like when I get attention. She then gets in between mommy and I. Literally!

Before I might have been upset but then I realized I'm actually free. That's the best time to get some zzz's in a nice quiet spot far far away from them.

Sure she'll get nice cuddles and scratches but soon after I'll hear screams in the distance when Fluff decides to play "eat the hand".

But it's not my problem anymore. Good luck with your crazy dog Renza!

4. Pretend I'm on her side

Pretending to be on Fluffy's side is my best defense. I need to play along with her devious plans and try not to get my paws dirty at the same time.

She's really scary you guys. If I don't, I'll be the victim of her next revenge plan. Mommy is still recovering from what Fluff did to her.

5. Find a priest

I think an exorcism might be necessary if Fluffy does not calm down. If anyone has done this sort of thing with a doggie then let me know, please.

Unpossessed Fluff might be calmer. Unless she's not possessed then I really don't know you guys. She'll grow out of it, right? Right?!

Hope that was helpful. I'll admit, without the crazy, I'll be really bored. We all need a little crazy in our lives. Just a tiny little bit.

I'll see you guys soon. Mommy is still very sad because granny passed but Fluff and I are making sure she's fine.

Don't worry we're taking good care of her. She still has her smile and laughs so I guess we're doing a good job.

Woof!! Woooooof!!
