A visit from Frodo

Frodo Doggins, that is.

Frodo is an easygoing Austin dog, but he will be here in the 'burbs for a while because his human is having to live in a dorm at seminary. His temporary humans brought him over to meet The Boy today.

The Boy was a little unsure of things. He hasn't ever been the chief host for another dog before.


There was much sniffing, and some face-making:


But after a while, everybody seemed to be getting along.


And, at last, they had a little game of chase:


(We were pleasantly surprised that The Boy was the chaser and not the chase-ee. Because he never would've tried such a thing with his sister. He must be figuring out he owns the place now.)

And hey, The Boy, don't go thinking you're going to start getting super-duper organic veggie dog treats like hippie-town Frodo eats. Yes, it was nice of him to share, but we know you like the ones you have.

sounds like they had a good time! it's always good to get visits. Scout got to meet some dogs at the lake today, including a lab puppy, but unfortunately, we don't have pictures. :(

I love these pictures! We had a dog guest today, too, and Sam told his cousin Luna to remember he is the big dog and she is not. I'm not sure why he felt the need to show his alpha-ness to her all of a sudden!

I love the tongue pic. Doing his part to "Keep Austin Weird"--it's a dog's duty!

Great pictures, especially of Frodo's tounge and all the doggie smiles. Doggie smiles are the best aren't they!

I love the photos. My dog is definitely very leery of meeting other dogs. He has one friend named Charlie who comes to visit, but other than that, he's shy. I wasn't a very good dog mama about getting him socialized.

As I read your blog, I was watching my two big dogs outside playing chase. It's great to have chase buddies.
