Supervisory Canines

They should get along! Grover looks like a giant untrimmed Henry. However, the two boys have struggled a bit.  Grover is a puppy and is very active.  He is four times Henry's size and doesn't recognize that size does matter at dog playtime.  Henry has spent a fair amount of time hiding under chairs, mom and bushes.

Finally though, I've figured it out!  All I have to do is leave the area.  Grover quits herding Henry away from his mom.  Henry quits growling at Grover in irritation.

Suddenly they are satisfied with parallel play.  They don't really interact much. It is more plopping down next to each other or following the other around in case they discover something interesting.

Under Henry's expert direction, the wall is done. On the other side is a delightful room for the new baby.   And Henry - well, for being such a good supervisor - he scored a marrow bone when we got home.  Trained by Grover, he guarded it just in case his two cat friends decided they wanted a taste.


  1. So in other words it all moms fault, BOL

    1. Hi Lily,
      Isn't that the way it is? Always mama's fault?
