Wild times with friends are always so much fun. On Wednesday, the weather ideal for a doggy play date with our Shiba Inu friends, Crush and Marvel. We have seen them at trials but we can’t play at trials. The temps were in the low sixties, there was a good wind and we were all energized! Bailie declined the invite to join us and went back inside. She really doesn’t like puppies much.
Marvel has sure grown up since we first met him in November. He is now about eight months old and full of himself which Olivia likes because she is the same way. The two of them picked up where they left off after their last play date immediately.
Crush spent time on the deck in his usual spot overlooking the jungle of a yard we have. He has no interest in participating in the fun chase games we love to play.
If you are wondering whether or not Marvel is happy about playing with Olivia, just look at the two smiling and running. They are so silly!
I will admit it, wild times with friends are a ton of fun, but I do get a bit jealous. Sometimes if Olivia is playing too much with Marvel and I am being ignored I have to separate them. I took a moment to explain to Marvel that Olivia is my sister and play buddy, but he sassed back at me, no respect for me I guess.
Despite the cooler weather, all the running makes a pup thirsty. The water bowl is on the deck. Marvel went up for a drink and then decided to have a look out over the yard like his brother, Crush likes to do.
Back on the yard level, the chasing game resumes with Olivia in hot pursuit of Marvel. Olivia seems to be taking the chase very seriously.
They both took a detour under the pine trees and here they are coming back out!
I do my best to keep up with the two crazies, but my legs are short. After taking a break, I’m happy to get back into the mix. This time it was Olivia telling off Marvel. Even when we get sassy, it is all in fun and we have a great time.
Believe it or not, we spent a little more than an hour racing and chasing in our backyard. Boy was it a lot of fun. We can’t wait until the boys come to visit us again, especially Olivia and Marvel. Those two are a perfect pair!
We are joining our friends at Living Laughing and Barking in Our Backyard is for their Nature Friday blog hop.
