Tennis, anyone?

Look at those doggy ears and eyes.  So full of hopeful anticipation.  :-* :-* :-*

Video: Dormouse snores while sleeping in zookeeper’s hand

The dormouse hibernates for long periods, spending up to one third of its entire life asleep. This particular rodent is a resident of the Surrey Wildlife Trust.  Surrey mammal project officer Dave Williams shot the video and the Surrey Wildlife Trust is accepting donations as part of their dormouse project, which seeks to help protect the endangered animal.

Today I was in the kitchen, checking e-mail, when I realized that things were awfully quiet.  I went to investigate, and this is what I found in the living room:


Ember and the new guy sharing a bully stick!   :)

Aw, that's cute, Fran!

So now they're best buddies?

So now they're best buddies?

We're getting there.  They play very rough, and someone is always letting out a yelp, it seems.  When they are out of control, one or both of them get sent to their crate(s) for a few minutes.  But so far, no blood has been spilled, and no one is missing any body parts.  :)

Our dog trainer said to separate them when their playing gets to be too intense to give them a couple of minutes to calm themselves.  They are getting better at self-regulating their play (automatically stopping or running to get a drink of water), but they've still got a way to go before they're BFFs.

I posted their bully stick photo on a whippet website I post at, and people were amazed that they were sharing food.  The comments were along the lines of "My dogs would never share food. No way."

I hope I'm not jinxing myself here, but I think Forest is the best thing that ever happened to Ember.  She is eating better -- finishing all of her food -- and she seems much happier.  Plus, she is much more outgoing when we have visitors.  I am so thankful that Ember's breeder gave Forest to us.

Soooo cute!

Wonder if Ember is now finishing her food because she's afraid if she doesn't, Forest will.  She didn't have to worry about that before.
