Patience Makes Perfect Play Mates

Our patience has paid off in spades!

She ran, he chased.  They played bitey face and wrestled.  They gave each other appropriate play breaks throughout and were quite happy to finally get to play.  

They even hugged!

OK...so it was a bit more of a wrestle than a hug but still! 

Eight days before this play date, Sadie & Karl met for the first time on leash in this backyard.  Karl immediately flipped onto his back and gave her belly a tongue bath.  Weirded out, Sadie got a little snarky with him and I had to intervene.  After eight days of patiently allowing the dawgs to get comfortable with each other through an ex-pen, these two played like they have been best friends for life.  We're so proud of both!

Karl is our temporary foster and is seeking a longer term foster or foster to adopt family.  You can read more about him here.


  1. Very cool. I wish I'd known about this when I got Delilah! LOL Any updates on a permanent home for Karl?

  2. Looks like a nice pairing--foster dogs can be great for that! Very sweet that you took him in.

  3. Aw, they are adorable together! It's nice to see that they're getting along; my cat always feels threatened by other animals.

  4. Lovely pooches! always nice to see dogs getting along
