Houseguest - Dioji

Our friends Brian and Merilee had a family thing to go to this week, and Dioji the Golden Retriever needed a place to crash, so we said 'bring him on over!' He's a sweetie, and since all the dogs are friendly (except Alki, who sends out bug-off vibes just fine) we figured they could have fun playing together. Seems to be working out fine so far :)

Barclay likes to chase and be chased, and wrestling. Dioji wasn't sure how to play with him, and he even scared Barclay a couple times by barking at him (sending him running back to me until he felt brave enough to go play again). But Jack and Barclay gave him a demonstration of their favorite play style. You can see him studying them intently! And they had a couple scuffles over toys. They're like teenage boys - one minute they are partners in crime, next thing you know someone is howling because they got punched. But overall it's been great and everyone seems to be having a good time.

These pictures are great. :) I didn't have internet while I was at the beach... so this is the first I've seen of them.

Glad that your dogs showed him how they play.
