Monty & Scrappy

I was out in the back with Scrappy and Lilly this evening. I took some shots with the camera. Tried to get Lilly to stop posing like a goof when I had her next to Scrappy. No luck. I suddenly decided to introduce Scrappy and the new boy, Monty. I’m normally reluctant to do a dog intro by myself but I felt okay about this one. Scrappy is pretty safe in such situations but I chose not to include Lilly. She can wait until tomorrow.

I returned both Scrappy and Lilly and out them behind a barrier. Then I ushered Monty into the backyard to make sure he was okay from his, um, procedure this morning. Monty got a few minutes to take care of personal business and stretch his legs.

Then I let Scrap out the back door. I used to always feel the tension, apprehension, and undivided attention that accompanies the first moments of an introduction. Not so much any more. I put the banging bowls down after 20 or 30 seconds because I knew Scrappy and Monty would be okay.

Getting to know you, getting to know all about you …
Turnabout is fair play …
The nose knows …
Sharing secrets from me …


C’mon get going …
Uh, Scrappy, you’re doing it wrong again …
Scrap showed Monty all the good places to pee …
No, I don’t have freakishly large eyes. Why do you ask?
This is my one-eyed Jack impression. Except my name isn’t Jack.
Scrap told Monty about the smelly goats next door.

    This is great Rob. Perhaps Scrappy can tell Monty not to pee in the house.
