I'm hoping she'll eventually become decent friends with my sister's new pup Scout so that we can trade dog-sitting duties. Usually Rita stays with my other sister and her hubby and Reg, but they travel a lot and it's always good to have backup!
So, my sis and I decided to get Scout and Rita together this past weekend. We went for a walk first to get them used to each other and then went back to the house.
And they both kinda just stood there. While we stood there saying, "Go play!" or "Get Rita, Scout!" or vice versa about 800 times.
Finally, Rita threw a playbow Scout's way and enticed her into a game of chase! (Sorry these pics are terrible - the sun/shade mix is a toughie.)
|Rita goes for the "higher-ground" tactical advantage.|
There was also a wee bit of the "claim the bed" game, which is a big favorite with Reg & Rita.
It's nice to have furry friends! Hopefully they'll get along well enough that we can try a Scout sleepover one of these days. I'll keep you posted!
Does your dog have friends? Do you travel without your dog? If so, where does your dog stay?
