Human pauses. Dog sits.
But next time try not to sit on the Shih Tzu’s head!
I’m always happy when Cassius and I meet nice dogs. I feel guilty that he doesn’t get enough doggie playtime, so whenever I have time and the inclination to do so, I let him say hi to the well-behaved ones we meet in our local cemetery/park. We occasionally meet a very sweet older gentleman with an equally sweet shih tzu. Yesterday, he was walking his dog in a full suit and tie! Anyway, Cassius is allowed to say “hi” if he remembers his manners. He doesn’t quite realize that he’s about 6 times bigger than the small dogs he encounters! So I had him in the beginnings of a sit yesterday when he gave me this rather perplexed look:
How am I supposed to sit when there’s a shih tzu under my butt?
Little dog moved, Cassius sat… but looked a tad concerned that he was being told to potentially squish his new friend! (luckily shih tzu moved out of the way and was not harmed by a big yellow butt and ferociously wagging tail). We went on our separate ways, with Cassius positively bouncing from his allowed doggie interaction.
This morning Cassius went to the groomer, which is a very fun thing! In addition to the obvious joys of attention and a bath (well, I might like the bath part more than he does!),
it also means a little off-leash indoor play with Henry, the resident Frenchie. Much fun was had by all today (and they both look positively annoyed that I was stopping their romping for the photo op).
It always makes me happy when Cassius finds doggie friends, and especially when he has an opportunity for some off-leash romping.
Cassius is now zonked out in his dog bed; playing is exhausting!
