In the early months of being with me, Buddy was so protective of his reunion time with me (I had just gotten home and we were cuddling on the porch or in the yard) that he would chase his doggie friends right out of the yard.  !0 minutes before they were playing together happily, they come over to play again and surprise!  “Get out of my yard – I want my dad all to myself.”

So much has changed.  These days – same situation, we’re sitting in the grass with Buddy lying between my legs, lapping up the love – if his hound dog neighbor friend Dorie comes over to sniff him, he gives her little kisses.  I think he’s just way more secure these days.

And there’s a new wrinkle.  When Dorie is nuzzling him, he tries to initiate the “Lets chew on each other’s faces, ears and necks” game – without leaving the comfort of my lap!  He focuses on the chewing, but makes no attempt to get up and play the game the way it’s meant to be played (either both up or the two of them alternately flopping over on their back – but not stationary) – then throws his head back towards me: “Don’t go away, now – I want you, too.” And so it goes – back and forth – until he either decides to get up and really play the game or Dorie breaks the game off because he’s not playing it right.

It’s all pretty funny.
