:Wyatt…and Khatas by KathyPosted: September 4, 2008
Running just about on empty, as well as that ever present out-of-time lately, this post is brief and to the point. Two people stopped by the shop yesterday.
Kathy dropped off beautiful khatas she knitted. These will be for sale/donation at Saturday night’s A Gathering of the Tibetans. They are soooooo soft, packaged beautifully with Kathy’s special touch.
Pete stopped by with a Wyatt report. He’s doing fine. Andy, however, has yet to show much interest in Wyatt. In fact, he shows disdain. I quickly directed Pete to the blog, but am requesting help from all of you. Please share your own stories of integrating another dog by ‘commenting’ on this blog entry. If anyone knows of good resources – books, articles – that address this topic, please ‘comment’ on those as well. Pete says Wyatt is a great dog. His concerns are Andy, Andy’s current dislike of Wyatt and that Pete, himself, is getting very attached to Wyatt. Wyatt, like all our adult dogs, is on a 2-week trial period. Although the main reason Pete sought another dog was as a companion for Andy, Pete wants this to work because he really likes Wyatt. He’s worried after the 2-week trial that he won’t want to part with Wyatt, but Andy will be miserable with the new addition.
I’ll call Pete today and tell him about this blog entry. Between all of us there’s a wealth of experience and dog knowledge. Unfortunately, many of us will be away from this means of communication for the next few days. I’m hoping the rest of you can fill in, giving Pete tips and sharing your own stories of dog integration.
