Well, we have company in from Canada - they will be here indefinitely. They have a 5 month old standard poodle - beautiful, but a very big dog. He's well behaved but has been pretty much to himself with his owners. They live out in the middle of nowhere in Ontario, and his exposure to other dogs has been nil.
I crated all 3 of mine when they got here, thinking I would introduce them one at a time. I let Beau (poodle) wander around for a bit while mine howled and pitched a fit. I let Diesel out first. Diesel promptly bit Beau on the nose when Beau towered over him and tried to sniff him, and Beau wound up hiding behind the couch for awhile. Eventually, he and Diesel became best friends.
Gracie isn't liking it one bit - Diesel is HER best friend. Instead of joining in the play, she's staying next to me or my husband and growling, non stop.
Pedro is just being Pedro...He's always grouchy...
Happy thanksgiving, all! It might get interesting around here!
