Making New Friends: Dorian

The weather was so nice this weekend, we took the girls to a park not far from home.

Our friends Amy and Anthony came along and brought their lhasa apso with them.

His name is Dorian.

Dorian did his best to make himself as small as possible when the girls were around.
He wanted so badly to be friends.

Mochi wasn't sure what to think at first.

But it didn't take her too long to warm up to him.

Mochi even tried to rub against him a couple times, but he got so wiggly with excitement whenever she got close, she changed her mind.

Mika, meanwhile, was wandering the sidewalks surrounding the park with Matt.

Both girls seem to prefer to be on paths.
I think having a clear direction to go makes them feel more comfortable.

Making-New-Friends-09
Mochi and I actually had ourselves a little jog around the path at one point.

Mika let us know when it was time to go.

She led Matt directly to our car and waited for him to open the door.

Mochi followed close behind. Both were panting a bit from the hot day.

Mika spent the rest of the evening napping just like this.
Mochi was at the other end of the couch in her cat bed.

Poor tired meows.

    Our boys prefer paths also, we also think the path gives them direction.
