I'm so sorry, @Barney. I don't know what I was thinking. Roxy (Boxer) goes back and forth between being a brat and growling, doing play bows, refusing to look at him, and trying to stand over me to keep him away. However, she's getting tons of extra love and treats, so we're hopeful she'll accept him. We just brought him home yesterday and at one point, she was being way too nosy and he let her know it was unacceptable. haha Paws crossed that it works out.
@PurplePawprints We had the same problem when we brought a Border Collie (very active) into our home. Our older yellow Lab was not happy, but we gave them both time to get used to one another. Can't say that it turned into a great love affair, but the Lab sure did miss her friend when Maggie died from an illness. Give them time. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and them.
Thanks, everyone! He is definitely going to be on the bigger side. His dad was purported to be 125lbs and still growing. Mom looked small for a Golden, so maybe he'll be in between the two. We shall see. So far, he's relatively calm, but I haven't really slept because he does not like to be crated at night and cries all. night. long. Hopefully, that will get better soon.
@brhfl Be careful watching that one with kids, though. Now that the eaglets are bigger, the parents are bringing home bigger meals that include housecats. It's an image I cannot unsee. Also, people, keep your pets inside!
@brhfl Oh, I misread the post about it. The DC cam is the one I watch occasionally, and a reporter I follow from that area was talking about, and posted pics of, the eagles and kitty, so I assumed it was the local ones.
@brhfl This evening's meal featured a squirrel, very clear images. The parent (I think TFL) unzipped it and fed it to Freedom and Liberty. I HAD been planning on spaghetti for dinner. Changed to peanut butter toast.
@PurplePawprints In rural areas, small pets - and sometimes not-small pets - are at risk b/c of coyotes and predatory birds. In some local new development suburbs, people have found backyard coyotes visiting, and one lady decided her toy poddles were strictly indoors after hawks (she thinks) tried to get them from the backyard while she was standing 3 yards away in plain site.
