FRIENEMIES.lola&LOVE.


I'd like to start this post off by saying I wish the photos were focused-- but I was busy focusing on the safety of my little animals.

It's been over 3 months since we brought Love into our family and I finally got up the nerve to let Lola and Love interact.  As loving as my Lola is, and as much as I want to believe she is more human than canine, a part of me knows she has animal instincts and I was HORRIFIED that she might try to eat Love if given the opportunity.  I think Lola is now used to having Love in her home, and figured it was safe to let them play under very close supervision.  Lola was on her leash and as soon as she became a little too excited I would make her calm down.

I was sooooo happy and relieved to see that Lola was actually pretty excited to play with Love, wagging her tail, sniffing and playfully following her around. Love actually surprised me by charging at Lola full speed and trying to bite her face!  It really was a sight to see. While they will never be together without close supervision, I feel like this was a step in the right direction.

THIS IS WHAT PROGRESS LOOKS LIKE....

  1. I know exactly what the horrifying feeling is like! I can happily say that after a year the four of them co-exist peacefully. My bird is far more fascinated by the dogs than they are of her and she tries her hardest to assimilate in the canine pack :)

  5. Aww - such sweet pictures. I think you did a great job w/trusting your instincts that you had to introduce them slowly, cautiously and in your presence. Even though we think our little doggies are more human than dogs, they definitely still have the hunter instincts.

  7. Oh my goodness, I can only imagine how stressful/exciting this "getting to know you" party was. Usually I wouldn't attribute Malteses to be bird dogs but then my baby will charge robins he sees in the lawn. So silly. Very very excited for you and your progress!!! Can't wait for pics of Love chillin' on Lola's head, watching reality tv or something hehe.

  10. I can't believe Love wasn't flying around your house out of control
    That would be my worry, of course beside the fact that our dog would gobble Love up
    Cuteness all around here
