The Shiba Inu boys, Crush and Marvel, came over for another play date last week. We had so much fun the last time they came over, we thought it would be fun to meet again. Bailie doesn’t like puppies pestering her, so we left her inside to do her own thing. Crush, Marvel’s big brother, also has no interest in our nonsense, but he stayed outside with us.
This time we got right down to play because we all know each other now. Marvel has grown a lot, even though he is still a young puppy, he is almost as big as his brother. He’s a pretty handsome little fellow.
Madison is rather bossy, with me and Bailie and with friends. She is small, but likes to be the canine in charge. We had a little meeting to discuss our game plan for the day. Marvel is really my friend. He likes me a lot, and I really like him. Madison was not real happy about being the third wheel in our games.
Even Marvel seems to think he is a real tough guy…at what, four or five months old? He tries to scare me, but what he forgets is that I am like twice his size. It’s a good thing I’m such a friendly girl.
We enjoyed a lot of chase games back and forth through the yard. Marvel starts out faster, but once I get going I use my giant turbo paws to gain speed and catch up to the little fellow.
It turns out Madison is a bit jealous of my playing with Marvel and not her. She would join in and try to capture me. Mom captured this shot of her flying through the air on her way to grab me I guess.
The three of us did some serious sniffing under the deck. I think critters hang out in that area when we are inside. Marvel doesn’t seem to know why we are sniffing, but he will figure it out in time.
I did one of my fly bys for Marvel so he could see how fast I am and how I can even fly like a birdie.
Oh heavens, after I did my fly by, the little fellow decided he would try to fly too. He seems more like a pouncing cat, but still, I needed to back up fast…who knows where he might land.
We have so much fun together, probably since we are closer in age than the others. Still Marvel, who is the only pup in his litter, can be a bit spoiled and forget to respect pups who are older than he is. No worries, I am not at all afraid of either of the Shiba Inu boys. I’m a big girl and I can handle myself.
Our play date lasted about an hour. We were all exhausted from all the racing and chasing we did, almost non-stop. It was so much fun, and I think Marvel and I will be bffs forever. Hopefully we will get to see each other at dog sports events, but it will be hard since we won’t be able to play with each other at those events. Good friends are good to find.
