Sun bathing together. Just before taking this photo Prezzi had slowly and carefully moved closer to Snif. Snif is staying with us these next days and all three dogs get along. By getting along I mean they tolerate each other and mostly respect each others space. Prezzi is an ‘in your face type of gal‘ but over the past years she is learning what she can and cannot do and the interaction sometimes even looks like the beginning of play.
One of the things that is a ‘need’ for Prezzi, is being physically close to the individuals she shares her house with. Mainly me and Driven. Getting close to me is no problem at all. Driven is a project and the strategy is changing: Prezzi waits for Driven to come to her now which results in close contact now some of the time.
Snif however…. Is being subjected to the exploration of what is OK. What I love today is her quietness in getting close where she used to be more demonstrative and dive right into where she wanted to be. Today she wandered over, sniffed, looked away, sniffed some more, turned away slightly and then softly lay down next to Snif.
In the time I am writing this Snif has moved away from Prezzi slightly. Too close for comfort it seems.
