July 12, 7:30 a.m. — We had a pleasant surprise when Madeline and her dog Butchok dropped by on their way to work. So, I seized the opportunity to introduced the 8 weeks old resident puppy to the visiting adult Shih-Poo dog. Mom-Princess wasn’t around so we humans provided supervision during this meeting.
Butchok is a therapy dog so I expected that he would treat the little puppy gently; no biting or rough playing — I wouldn’t allow it. Also, I observed his body language first before I set down the puppy on the floor because I’m not certain whether if Butchok is aware that Vanilla Bean is his pup. To capture the moment as the dogs as sniff butts in greeting, I used the only thing with camera near me– a Nokia 6300 phone. Here’s the video:
After the getting-to-know-you phase, these are some of the snapshots of their bonding.
