On this experimental episode of Meet The Pups,
we're going to be focusing a giant magnified scientific eye
on how order is maintained within the pack.
Scientific, yes... and I'm a space hobbit.
Well, OK, I admit it.
We're just going to see a lot of puppy play fighting.
But we're going to find out who is boss in the pack.
I'm... I'm just too beautiful for fighting.
Eight-week-old Biscuit has always been the most
advanced of the two female pups.
She's not afraid to take on her brother, Bonzo,
in what I call the battle of the bunny.
That used to be my bunny. Ooh, is nothing sacred?
But first, Bonzo seems to be getting the upper hand. Well...the upper paw.
But Biscuit is now ready to challenge Bonzo.
Right, that's it. It is time for a puppy slam dunk.
Yeah, eat my paws, milk face.
Yeah, and I'll give you a slight jab to the ear flap.
Yeah, take that, egg breath.
Those two...they are so fighty.
Bonzo isn't standing for any of that and comes forward again
causing Biscuit to lie down, a sure sign of submission.
Can you keep the documentary waffle down?
It's bad enough listening to those two.
Bonzo is the dominant alpha male of the pack.
But Biscuit comes back for one last try.
Biscuit is definitely the alpha female.
Yeah, did you hear that, I am alpha, alpha!
-No, alpha, alpha, alpha.
Shut your rabbit.
You'll regret that.
When it comes to food, the pack also has a strict hierarchy.
The biggest and strongest get to eat first, and most.
That means Mum, Lola, can eat whatever she likes...
when Dad, Morgan, is not around.
I can eat what I like even when Morgan is around.
Yes, a neat trick, that.
Pretend to feed the puppies and then eat their food.
Well, I need to keep my strength up. I've just given birth.
It's only eight weeks ago.
And Lola's favourite drink to wash it down with is milk.
Hey, I thought milk was bad for some dogs.
Well, it can be, but not for me. Mind you, it does give Morgan wind.
Oh, look there, lovely, milk! Oh, I love milk! I love milk!
Yes, great for a small one. Shove over, Bonzo.
Well, that's very kind of you, Lola, sharing with the pups.
-Sharing, sharing? It's three against one.
-Oh, dear. None left for Lola.
Giving, giving, giving. You see, it's a mother thing.
-You wouldn't understand.
-Please, Mum, can I have some more?
Best not, you'll be trumping like your father.
When it comes to challenging Morgan's pack leadership,
-Bonzo isn't afraid to hit where it hurts.
-Get away from my ball, son.
-That's not for children.
-Look, Dad, I'm like you.
Drop the ball, son. It's too big for you. Erm...
Yeah, give us it now.
Give me that!
Get off, I had it first!
Wouldn't this be a good time to step in, Morgan?
-It is your ball after all.
Step away from the ball. Step away from the ball!
Don't worry, Morgan, Biscuit's rescued it.
Oh, no, no! She's going to lose my special ball!
Help, Mum, it's got me! Dad, help! Somebody help! Help!
Biscuit, don't panic! Just get the ball!
The sofa...he's trying to eat me! He's a monster!
-Biscuit, no! The ball!
-No, the monster can have it!
The monster can have it! I'm out of here!
Oh, no...oh, that is my nightmare scenario.
Ball under the sofa.
What do I do?
Just goes to show, even when you're top dog,
you're not always having a ball.
He-he-he, did you see what I did there?
And there you have it, the hierarchy of the pack rules.
And clearly, not everyone gets what they want.
Even when the dogs are sleeping, their dreams are ruled
by their place in the social order.
Betsy dreams of securing a small, tasty bowlful.
Bonzo dreams of eating Betsy's dinner...and his own.
While Biscuit... well, she wants everyone's.
And what about Lola? What of her dreams?
While Morgan, being top dog,
he gets to dream of just about whatever he likes.
Sleep tight, pups.
And don't be afraid to dream big
cos even within the hierarchy of the pack, every dog has its day.
I can't believe I said that...
Having a puppy is a huge, time-consuming responsibility.
