Dog Pals Inside and Out

While my dog Valentino plays well with other dogs outside the home, I often wondered how he might react to the presence of another dog inside the home, his territory.

Wonder no more! My roommate's girlfriend spends a good bit of time here now and often brings her little dog Roxie along.

While he may grumble just a tidbit when Roxie stockpiles his chew toys, one-by-one, onto the sofa (where she knows he is not allowed) he is a good dog. He waits patiently for Roxie to jump down and wander off so he can snag one of his dog bones off the couch!

One day the three of us were on the front porch and Roxie took off. Little dogs are fast! 

I chased her down, put her on the porch and leashed her up this time. All the while, Valentino serenaded her with his hound dog howl. You can bet Roxie paid heed to his admonishing tone!

As you can see, Valentino and Roxie are content to be front porch pals, sitting together as friends while watching our small town world go by.

Dog Park Play Date

Dog Park Pond Dogs Valentino and Albus
My dog Valentino had his first scheduled play date today — at the dog park!

Valentino and Albus became pooch pals when my next door neighbor rescued Albus from the Humane Society a couple of weeks ago. Neither my neighbor nor I have fenced yards so we made a dog park play date for our canine boys to get together and get to know each other better.

Our dogs had the best of times splashing and thrashing through the pond provided by the dog park.

Rough and Tumble Dog Park Play

The chase is on, with Albus leading the way!

Dogs nose-to-nose in the shade.

There were about a dozen dogs in the park today and all were friendly players. Many of the dog owners appreciated newcomer Albus for giving their dogs plenty of exercise as he led the way in chase after chase today.

All in all, it was a great play date at the dog park for Valentino and Albus, with many more to come, I am sure.
