Lilly & Katie Play
The same day that Lilly played with Pitsch, our Borzoi friend Katie graduated from her first obedience class. She came in third overall with a score of 183 out of 200, which is tremendous (not to be breed prejudiced) for a sight hound. She came over with her parents (Pat and Bear) so celebrate and to show off her cool new trick (jumping through a hoop). As I’ve said before, there is something about Katie that Lilly really likes. She treats Katie in a different way than she even treats Ginko. Compare these videos I shot to those I posted of Lilly and Pitsch and of Lilly and Ginko. Seriously, what other dog can do *this* without getting a rise out of Lilly?
They kept up the fun for quite a while.
Then, they did this hilarious wrestling thing. Notice how Katie handicaps herself so that Lilly will play with her and not be intimidated by her size.
Of course, there is this — border collie pestering. Katie stole the ball and is perfectly happy to weather the storm.
Those of you with more experience in dog-dog relationships …. I’d be curious what differences you see in these interactions that I can capitalize upon.
