New Dog on the Street

Our family got a little bigger last night.


The new pup is Gordie. He's 5 years old and just a plain ol' mutt. They said he was "cattledog" but I'm not seeing it. Toby is very happy to have a new older brother and we're happy to have another dog around.

Toby doesn't know how to just "hang out" with another dog. When he sees another dog he immediately thinks: A NEW FRIEND! LET'S PLAY! PLAY! PLAY! PLAY! So, the first thing he did when they met was take every toy out of his basket and shake it in Gordie's face. He tried to tackle him. Nipped at his ears. Everything he could think of to get Gordie to play, but Gordie just isn't very playful yet.

Still, Toby isn't giving up:

Welcome to the family Gordie.

We really need to get together for a doggy play date. Boston can't fathom the idea that another dog wouldn't want to play with him either.

Aww... poor Toby. His new brother isn't very playful. I like how Gordie looked at the camera like, "Please make him stop getting in my face."

Congrats on your new addition!

How about this toy, this one? Come on, this? Oh boy, please play with me, please please.

Too cute
