Our neighbors (who don’t care for Rufus due to his noise level) brought home a puppy at Christmas. Rufus has issues with anyone or anything being near the gate and has spent the last several weeks having a meltdown if the puppy is outside. The puppy is quite loud so at least they can’t give me “evil eye” about Rufus. I know it is just shocking to all of our readers that people don’t like Rufus! What is not to love about someone that stands outside of your bedroom window howling like a madman?
The puppy is obsessed with Rufus and has been trying to be his best friend. Today Rufus caved and decided that he is going to allow the puppy to be his friend and be near the fence. It occurred to him that he can bark in sync with the puppy and really set our neighbors over the edge…The two spent the afternoon checking each other out and kissing through the fence. The puppy is pretty excited that all three of the four legged are now his buddies!
I thought it would be about 3 months until Rufus accepted the fact that the dog lived next door. He doesn’t trust quickly, but apparently we are making progress.
