Just curious about how people think of their dogs’ relationships with eachother. We have a boy & girl dog, and we’ve always thought of them as siblings, when people try to label them as lovers it’s weird. Our families and dog sitter are on the same page as us.
But if we bred them, I could understand. But they’re fixed/spayed so that’s not in the cards.
How about you?

Mine are actual mother and son… so makes it kind of weird, because I have a cat and will tell the mother dog “be nice to your sister!” but I think I would say the same thing to the son dog… haha. Generally, I would consider pets as each other’s siblings except with my dogs. Never as lovers!

Hahahaha I love this thread. Definitely siblings!! My stepmom calls her dogs each other’s “boyfriend” and “girlfriend” and it totally gives me the ickies!!

unicornphish: Siblings! Adoptive or not. =) I always say “Where’s your sister?”

Siblings. “Brothers from another mothers!”

Lovrs would just be- weird. Ours are two boys from the same litter. They love each other dearly but never mounted or anything.
I prefere not to think of animals in that sense. Especially if they are nuetered. Even when they procreate it is mating not because they are in some deep romantic love.

When we had two dogs they were gay lovers. they were a golden and a beagle and didnt look like siblings. they were an odd couple for sure. and our golden would sit their and lick and groom the beagle and be the beagles protector if he was being bullied at the beach. so the term came from the dom/sub sense of the relationship. we currently only have one dog and we have studded him in the past and my brother has his son so we call them “papa ___” and his son.

I have a female unspayed 7 year old pom mix and when she was about 2 we brought in a male sheltie pup. She hated him at first but adjusted really quickly, they have become best friends, neither are fixed only because their was never a need they aren’t like that with each other. The shelter is five now. When me and my fiancee got together he had a 7 year old unfixed male golden retriever and when he brought his dog into the mix my male sheltie hated him because he is protective over my female and naturally the golden retriever shows interest in my female. It made for some miserable dogs my sheltei hearding my female so that the big dog wouldn’t go near her. The golden retriever has no idea of his size and is a chicken the sheltie on the other hand also thinks he is bigger than he is and had no problem wanting to fight the golden if he so much as got near my pom.Part of the deal was he gets him fixed shortly after moving in as my dogs live perfectly fine together and have never showed an interest in matting they are to much like brother and sister. The golden retriever will always be an outsider as far as they are concerned , he lives here but they really want nothing to do with him he isn’t their friend they don’t have a bond they just tolerate each other and that’s how it’s always gonna be as its been a year now.

We have 2 boy dogs, so they’re just siblings in our eyes. I didn’t know people thought of them otherwise unless you knew you were breeding them! But even then people that I know don’t keep breeding dogs together.

When I had two dogs and was living with my parents my whole family thought the dogs were lovers. They just adored each other, especially the male towards the female. Lol obvi its silly and a joke of sorts but man did they love each other!

We have two rabbits and we call them “life partners”. Not quite brother and sister because our boy occasionally humps our girl, but not as icky as lovers haha.
