I do my best to keep Lola Pug’s social life as active as she can manage. She has her besties, who we travel far and wide to see, but I also think it’s important to introduce her to new friends, just in case there is a friendship spark there for her.
So when the opportunity arose to go and see two of her BFF’s, Miso and his sister, Leia, as WELL as a couple of new friends, I jumped!
Oh, hai, guys! What’s up? You have a guest over, eh?
Well, hello, handsome Buddy! Lovely to meet you!
Um. Lola. There seems to be yet another someone new behind you. You might want to turn around…
What a funny looking dog! HELLO DOZER!
Needless to say, we humans all sort of gently and collectively lost our minds when Dozer walked in. The dogs were rather blasé, but they kept their eyes on us as their new friend snuffled around and indicated that he clearly had the charm (and treat radar) thing down pat.
So what else am I going to do but try to get a group shot?!?
As expected, it was easier said than done.
Ever the consummate professional, Lola stayed on her mark the entire time, while chaos reigned around her.
Maybe more a bit more space, a bit more time, and a bit more jam (Dozer likes jam), and we’ll have better luck next time.
I could write forever about how fascinating it was to watch the dogs interact with Dozer, and how *different* pigs are from dogs – and how when you look into Dozer’s eyes, you see clearly that there is a complex, intelligent, emotional being inside that little pig body…
…but this is all about short adventures and photos, and besides, it’s time for a nap.
Thank you for coming by to visit, sir! The pugs and Buddy and the humans all really enjoyed meeting you, and thank you for being such a patient and sweet little gentleman.
Now. How am I going to top THIS for Lola Pug’s ongoing adventures?
I’ve clearly got some work ahead of me.
