How many is too many?

Dogs, that is. I’ve wondered how many dogs I could have mingling inside the house. I’ve had 5 for several days with 1 or two more in the kennels (converted garage). That was a lot. Of course, the answer first depends on which dogs are on the list. Some dogs just aren’t going to get on with other dogs no matter what you do.

Tucker makes a new friend

Tucker lost one of his special play friends a few days ago when Baxter got adopted. Tucker was one of the few dogs that wasn’t overwhelmed by Baxter’s energy and rambunctious play style.

We quickly found out that Karl and Tucker had quite similar play styles. Here’s hoping they can spend many hours together.

Our old friend Arco

The handsome Yellow Lab, not the Sacramento arena. His family is off to India for a wedding so Arco gets to visit with us for a bit. Arco used to live across from me when I lived in Folsom. The city, not the prison. He became infatuated with me and watched my house intently in order to monitor my comings and goings. I’m grateful that I still get to see him.
