New Year, New Friend

In past posts I have written extensively about the process of building our new house and the Team Leader, both of which bring great happiness with a side of frustration occasionally.  In late October we finally had neighbors move in on both sides of us with dogs.  Since we have partial iron fencing on three sides, you can imagine the Team Leader's sheer happiness at this new development.  So recently we had a playdate with one of the neighbor dogs.

This is Simon, who lives next door.  Simon has never really socialized with other dogs, especially not big fluffy poodle-like ones that do sprint circles in the yard when she sees him through the fence.

They seemed to get along well together.  Simon also loves the squeaky balls the Team Leader's grandma bought her for Christmas!

Checking things out in a rare moment of pause! 

These two are like peas in a pod.  If one dog is outside and wants the other to come outside, then the one already outside barks until the other one is let out.  We have tried breaking the habit, but it does not seem to be working.

Simon is still learning, though, that the Team Leader plays hard, so sometimes he has to call a time out and walk to the side of the yard, taking the ball, of course!
