Ha ha, in the second picture I can't tell if she's smiling or saying "back away from the kibble bowl. NOW!"

Cool, maybe she could join the Puppy Roller Derby or something. She definitely has the attitude!

Tell Nina she has bad table manners and needs to share her kibble with her mom.

Actually, I don't like the second picture. People get in trouble with dogs over resource guarding. You need to either work with her to make her feel more comfortable about you near her food bowl (this work is best started when the dog is a small puppy, but you can improve it at any age) or give her the space she needs to feel comfortable when she's eating. Pressuring a dog until they respond like this is asking for a bite.

I agree with Karen on this! when i was a small child we had a dog that always showed her teeth if you went near her food and one day i didn't know she had a bone near her
and i bent down to stroke her and she bit my hand very badly. for the past 37 years i have had dogs of my own and from the first day we bring them into our home we have
taken food out of their dish and let them take it out of our hands whilst they are eating,
I have 7 grandchildren and they also have done this under supervision and we have
never had an issue with any of my dogs when someone goes near them whilst eating.

I agree, good example of "resource guarding". Why is bad behaviour tolerated in a small dog, yet in a pit bull or GSD is grounds to have the dog euthanized??? I'm sure Dave has an article he can send!

She came home much worse and we have been working with her. I actualy posted about it before and I totaly agree. If you have more ideas we are very open.
