Drummer, as he is now called and Honey, our recent additions to the Heronbank “Pack” are settling in well. They have been introduced to Spirit our Border Collie. She can be a bit nippy around dogs she doesn’t know, so has been wearing her muzzle for an hour or two each evening until she gets used to them. Last night, when everyone had more or less settled down in the lounge, I unclipped her muzzle and removed it.
Sensibly, she moved away from the other dogs and took herself into the kitchen, returning later, to lie by the lounge door. No-one hassled her and she left everyone alone. Progress indeed! Drummer even sniffed at her, and she turned her back, and lay down. What a good girl! The pups can walk past her without any problem so I think the pack has been integrated!
