Adventures in Babysitting

Well, we're not keeping our grandson, but the grandog, Zeke the Boxer.

He and our Papillon are trying to determine what their relationship will be. He has a fondness for her delicate toys and she wants his toys. Just like children, they can also be jealous of each other. So petting times can be a bit overwhelming. It has been a challenge to keep control but so far so good.

For such a big dog Zeke is gentle, but he is still a two year old Boxer and he can be a bit rambunctious. I have always worried that our little dog Trixie, might get hurt playing with him just because of the size difference. However, she has been holding her own and will run to us if she feels overwhelmed. But she has also been standing up to him and even took away his ball leaving him looking very confused.

She does have an attitude and has not been afraid to stand her gound.

I think we will all survive this week without any lasting injuries.
Hope you have a great weekend.
