A little dog named Brodie came to live with us yesterday. Jake, normally shy around dogs, welcomed his new little brother by engaging in a marathon chase. The puppies 4 month-old wobbly legs were no match for our 9 year-old dog’s 17 pound frame. Brodie seemed to take the harassment it in stride, however. By the end of the day two worn-out dogs sprawled out on the living room floor. Bedtime brought its own form of adventure. Brodie had never been crated before. We armed ourselves with hearing protection and settled in for the night. We discovered that Brodie can bark very loud for a puppy. In the end, a night light and big brother Jake camped outside the crate saved the day. Sweet dreams Brodie!
