It was kind of cute last night at the vet though. The vet went to pick her up and take her for the blood draw (Josie was snuggled into me) and Josie did not want to go and kind of growled and hid her face into me, the vet was like wow she is an alpha and has claimed you. ( I had been telling her this but she had not seen it). I was worried it was a bad thing and she said no she was just stating she didn't want to leave me but was not agressive about it-whew.... I have never had an alpha animal so this behaviour is foreign to me.
