It seems, as of late, we’ve opened a doggy day care or training camp for dogs and it’s great to see the dogs actually enjoying themselves. The small dog in this picture is Roo, my sister-in-laws dog, and spent the night with us while they were away at a curling tournament.
Corona, our Dogo Argentino, was only a teensy bit jealous of the visitor and showed us in many different ways, one of which seen here. Although Roo is a bit afraid of our cat Russ (hence not an easy photo shoot and no pictures…yet) she enjoyed the company of a big dog teaching her how to behave.
I’m sure Roo will someday be welcomed back by all but for now her parents are on their way to pick her up.
Corona looks like she’s ready to pounce on anything that moves (including our cat Russ) if they move the wrong way but she’s really just playing with Paul.
Corona ready to strike
Most Dogo Argentino’s can be mistaken for a horse by the size of them but this one certainly loves to horse around besides. With Paul always getting her riled up and me trying to settle her down this is one confused dog. She just feels very lucky to have the horsing around time when I’m not here and time to rest up when I am.
As she continues to show signs of aging the wrestling seems to have gotten her ever more tired as the years pass on but that’s ok as Paul’s slowing down a bit, too.
