I took this a while ago (obviously) – it looks to me like some sort of significant body language – but I have no idea what they were saying. Can anyone translate? 😀

They look like they are sizing each other up,trying to work out who would win if it came down to a fight. Both dogs are very tenseNovember 3, 2008 at 5:07 pm #78005Foxisle_crazyMember
From that pic, id say Dorain looks on the defensive, as if Duibh was just having a sniff but Dorain looks like ‘im not happy coz we’ve been here before,so im ready’
I don’t get that duibh is being that serious, but it could just be the picture, as it could change in the next frame you tookNovember 3, 2008 at 6:40 pm #78006
from what i remember – and it was a while ago so can’t remember that well – duibh was wagging tail a lot – side to side not up – and making little whiny noises. :-\November 3, 2008 at 6:48 pm #78007
video was taken a few months before the photo. just thought that might help. :-\November 3, 2008 at 7:57 pm #78008*Lassie*Member
Surprised you have a house left mad pair ;D
duibh is asking Dorain to play, what is the difference in ages?
You can’t always tell much from a static picture, the body language can change very quick depending on the mood of the dogs. The vid shows more, Duibh wants to play, Dorain not too sure he wants to, there is something worth stealing in the kitchen >:D Dorain has had enough when Duibh could carry on playing but Duibh doesn’t push it and settles down after the mad five minutes.November 3, 2008 at 9:10 pm #78009
Age difference – Dorain was 7 at the time, and Duibh was 2 & a half.
Another video – first 45 secs involves Dorain and a chicken thigh if you don’t feel like watching that bit. ;D

they’re sizing each other up for a fight over who is top dog …… all play is about pack status.
