Jessica is doing her part to make sure Westley still sees other dogs. She is walking him twice daily, taking him to the park and to the beach, and letting him meet nice dogs that live in their apartment complex. She's even reached out to a So Cal group of collie owners and found someone with two rough collies that Westley can play with. Plus, she found a neighbor whose daughter has a smooth collie for Westley to meet soon!
This is all good for Westley, but what am I supposed to do for Ozzie? I most certainly am not getting a third dog. I'm pretty sure my spouse would draw the line in the sand if I did that. But Ozzie does need someone to play with. Looks like I am going to have to start having play dates again at my house for him. I may even start taking him more places with me just so he can get out and about more as he loves going anywhere I go. He's such a sweet, sensitive dog, I worry that he will miss Westley too much and then be a total lunatic when Jess brings him back over the holidays. I guess we will just have to play that by ear. In the meantime, Ozzie will be camped out under my chair and underfoot. Hoping this bout of depression passes quickly as he's too big to be a lap dog. Although he'd probably be willing to argue otherwise.
As always, if you have questions about your pet's behavior, you know where to find me.
Westley looks pretty content. Hoping he's dreaming about his buddy, Ozzie,
and the mischief they can get into over the holidays!
