My Boys

Here are some pictures of my boys:
(they're both such great dogs!)








Guess they've had enough of the photo session!

He's a Beast!


This is our new dog! I'll have to get a picture of him next to our other dog, who never looked quite so small until he was standing next to this monster. They're both great dogs, and are getting along fine, although they're still figuring each other out, and the new one is testing his limits, naturally. The cats don't know what to make of him! Looks like everyone will adjust without any major problems, though. He responds very well to the basic commands, and he already sees me as the alpha of his pack, so accepts correction when it's necessary. He still tries to bully the other dog a little - not aggressively, but he's still trying to see what he can get away with. But because he does recognize me as "the boss", I've been able to redirect him when he tries to push the other dog around, so I think it won't be long before everyone's settled & it seems like he's been here all along. He's already quite comfortable here, and I think he enjoys being in the house (he was an outside kennel dog), and being able to come and go as he likes - we have a fenced yard and a dog door. Our other dog is excited to have a companion again, and seems quite happy to have a barking buddy around. :-)
