Enjoy Being a Girl

…dog, that is! The journal Animal Behavior reports a new study suggests male puppies are rather gentlemanly. When male puppies play with female puppies, researchers have discovered male dogs often let females win, even if they have a physical or tactical advantage and could pin them to the mat. In fact, male pups will even put themselves in disadvantageous positions, such as dropping to the ground or licking the female’s muzzle, just to keep the game in play. Choose your moment for sharing this fun bit of trivia. It’s a nice reminder that there’s got to be a little give-and-take in every relationship!
