Today started off great. I got home and took the doggies to the park...lucky them.
Rufus's good friend, Bentley was there.
Run, Bentley, run!
Commence WWF-Style Smackdown:
Ima gonna slap you!
Did we get him?
Yup, I think we got him.
There was definitely some Post-Smackdown-Spooning.
Stella was her usual stoic self.
And after a shot like this (note Rufus), I should have known it was coming.
So we went home, la de da. I decided to plant my raspberries and let the dogs play in the back yard. Stella quit after a bit and laid down on the back porch. We went in and ate dinner. Toward the end of dinner (a wonderful stir-fry prepared by my wonderful Andy), I noticed some fluff was coming off of Stella's back/side. So I leaned over to investigate. Rufus had ripped a hole in her skin.
I went to Walmart.
Rufus is lucky that Stella is such a forgiving dog. And I can add another one to the long list of Stella-Injuries. I'm hoping we won't have to take her in for stitches. xxxx :/
I'm also thinking about investing in doggie health insurance. Any recommendations?
***note: I think I should mention that, as a shar pei, Stella is prone to skin problems, so although I was a bit peeved at Rufus for playing too rough with her, I can't really blame him because he doesn't understand English (so I can't really tell him "Sissy has skin problems...no biting!"). Sadly. Any tips on getting a dog not to play bite other dogs, or is that just part of being a dog?
