Almost Flashback Friday

Never enough time in a day, is there? So many things I want to share with you guys but never enough time/energy to get it all done. Well, still working on it, but --

I've been extra busy this week thanks to some visitors.

Remember these guys?



Charlie and Scruffy came to stay last year, and I have to say not much has changed. They are both mellow dogs, happy to be shut in or out, to have company or to be left alone. Okay, I admit I'd forgotten what that was like, what with high-maintenance puppies who also have a touch of #FOMO.

But then, they also have the same relationship dynamic -- Charlie is fearfully submissive with Scruffy, and Scruffy redirects arousal onto Charlie. So I keep the peace by giving them plenty of separate time and feeding/playing with them separately. It's a shame because they get less stimulation than dogs who can be together, because there's only one of me and only so much time in my day, but I'm still sure they're having a grrreat holiday while their owner does!


  1. I know exactly what you mean about not being together, that is how I feel about Callie but we have to do what is best. I'm glad that they are having fun with you and I know you're having fun too!

    1. Glad you understand, acdMom. That's why I admire how well you manage Callie in your pack - it's hard work! I'm lucky that these two CAN be together, it's just if they were my dogs I would give them more separate time - so that's what they get at my house. Yes we are all having fun :)


Thoughts? I'd love to hear them!
