We have been “babysitting” Oma’s dog. Flopsy decided that she did not like Thor when she first met him at my parents’ house. Â She would growl at him and try to scare him off. Â That did not bother Thor. Â Finally, Flopsy decided Thor was not worth anything and refused to acknowledge his presence. Â She turned her back on him and refused to look at him.
Then she came to stay with us. Â She tried growling at him and snapping when he came too near. Â But Thor was persistent and kept going up to her. Â Flopsy started walking in wide circles aroundÂ Thor, but slept in corners where heÂ could not fit and under the table when all the chairs where pushed in.
However,Â I have five children who insisted that these two learn to be friends and like each other. Â They have worked at it all week, and now, while not exactly “best friends”, Flopsy has decided that Thor is not so bad…
Especially when treats are involved.
