I found a couple of rawhide things in the house to keep the pups busy. Kirbie and Neusch inevitably play musical rawhides with them. They both come downstairs after quiety chewing and Neusch had both of them in his mouth. Little stinker. I took one and gave it to Kirbie.
This is an attempt to show Neusch doing his butt rubbing thing on the couch and also his attempts to play with Kirbie. Kirbie is still unsure but he acts like he wants to. I ended the video when Neusch started getting a little fresh.
Obviously the whiskey would be for the owner.

I picked up Neusch today! I cried on the way home because I think his Dad’s heart was broken when he said goodbye. It was not something he really wanted to do.
Shasta said hi almost right away - meowing and sniffing Neusch (she would rather meet new dogs than new people). Trinity has hung back, growled and hissed a bit when he got too close (she would rather meet new people than new animals).
I took Kirbie when I picked Neusch up so they rode back in the car together. Kirbie has been a tad possessive of some of this things. Nothing big. So far they’re inhabiting the same space without any real tussles. I know Neusch is a bit confused about where he is and I feel bad about that. He has eaten a bit too.
I saw a flyer at work for a dog that needed a home. The guy who owns him (the dog’s name is Neusch) has had him for about 6 years and he was his only companion. He got married a few years ago and his wife and her child from a previous relationship entered his life. They have a kid of their own now and Neusch has not been super tolerant of the kids and it culminated in a few snaps at the kids recently. It doesn’t happen when Jim (the owner) is there but his wife doesn’t feel good about having Neusch around.
I met Neusch after work and brought Kirbie. Neusch (who is about 8 or 9 - Jim got him from a friend who found Neusch as a stray) is very sweet and he and Kirbie seemed to get along. Kirbie spent a lot of time sniffing the yard and peeing on things but there was no outright hostility. Neusch did try to hump Kirbie now and then and Kirbie snapped a bit (typical dog back off snap-no real bite). They didn’t really play at their first meeting but I am going to take Neusch. I am going to get him next Tuesday because I’m going out of town this weekend for a birthday and don’t want to board him right away.
I’m nervous because I’ve never had two dogs before. I hope Kirbie and Neusch adapt to each other.
