Honey and Bear, a-wrastlin' in the yard.

It started over the chicken.


Quickly escalated into a battle of the titans over the cow.


Finally devolved into pure silliness!

1. She's getting along beautifully!

I'm so glad they are getting along well. They both look like sweeties!

8. She's wearing Bear out, that's for sure!

She's wearing herself out, too, but she seems to have a lag between body and brain, takes her a loooong time to wind down! I'd forgotten what it was like to have a puppy.

2. Honey looks like she is doing so well.

I am very glad of that. She seems really happy to have found you and Bear.

7. She's still getting used to being a family dog,

and there are still some tense cat moments, but she's becoming more trusting by leaps and bounds. Did not know about deep belly rubs until yesterday, wouldn't let us roll her on her back to give them. But just about an hour ago she voluntarily gave up her belly for a rub. Adorable!

12. That is most encouraging.

For a dog to offer her belly is quite a compliment to you! Congrats.

3. I love when dogs play "put my head in your mouth and make growly noises"

I think it's like Doggie Dancing

6. You can't tell by the stop-action shots,

but this was so lively Bear just had to lay down and Honey would jump back and forth over and around him.

4. I hereby do declare them sisters and pack mates

Good for Honey.

Watching dogs come into an established family is always interesting. There is a perfect blend of assertion and submission. The result is a fully equal seat at the table.

And a secure knowledge that one's head in another's mouth is all in a day's play.

They look so great!

5. They're brother and sister.

Here's Bear all like, "Hey, woman, look out where you're placing your right paw!"

9. That little epidode would scare the hell out of me. I have PTSD when it comes to dog fights.

I've experienced too many horrible fights in my life and at the first sign of a possible fight I go all to pieces...almost like panic attacks. I can't take my dog to the local doggie park due to this fear. I tried it once and had to leave...just too stressful!

I'm so glad your doggies were "playing" and establishing dominance and no harm done.
Honey Bear's look so cute together. Good luck! Honey is a lucky dog....God bless her

11. The signs of it being play and not an attack were present.

Play bowing, tails wagging, no hackles raised. It looks a lot worse than it is because of the sharp teeth. Bear was attacked by a dog about two months ago, came running out of a yard with no warning and tore part of his ear. So I certainly know where you're coming from!

Honey sure has worked out how to be a family dog and so fast!
