So, I mentioned that Patrick came home for an extended time; he and Thatcher drove from Arizona (and hopefully won't ever go back). So, this is Thatcher. He's a cute little guy.
He likes children and larger humans, too.
He would not jump up to take the specks of food Maddie was trying to share; she had to drop them on the floor for him. I thought that was really polite of him.
The only problem with Thatcher is that he doesn't like other dogs. Hence, we had him muzzled for Thanksgiving weekend. It made me sad.
Anyone have any suggestions as to how we can get Thatcher to be nicer to dogs? He was growling at Tank, which hurt poor Tank's feelings. By and large he ignored Bebop, maybe because Bebop had a hurt leg and was just laying around or hobbling when he was up. It's a shame, because he could have lots of friends. And since I expect people with dogs to start arriving on Thursday the 21st (only 10 days, folks; time to get that Christmas organization into high gear), it's going to be a problem.
Anyway, I just wanted everyone to meet Thatcher! Happy Monday!
