I am having such fun with my new dog! At approximately four years of age she is a bundle of energy. I have taken her to visit a neighbor twice now – they have a fenced yard and three dogs of their own – one a 4 month old dog (the breed escapes me) that just loves to play. The other two are a little older than my dog and not as energetic. The two younger dogs have been running and playing and doing summersaults over each other and leaping over the other dogs like hurdles. It has been so much fun to watch.
The other day the three dogs from my neighbors ended up at my house for a few hours (the neighbors had workers over) and the dogs ran in circles through my house – which literally forms a big circle when all the bedroom and office doors are open. My cat is not… I repeat NOT happy about the new dog, or the herd of dogs he was forced to hide from. He is not… big NOT… happy that he is no longer the only child. He has been pouting because of this. He is afraid of the dog (my last dog was there from the beginning of his life, and barely acknowledged his existence.) The dog is afraid of the cat, but wants to play. It’ll work out eventually.
It is raining here – again. Thankfully we get a day between rains for it to soak in a little.
