Thanks, guys! They're hilarious, they were doing zoomies together on the bed this afternoon. Thankfully, it's warmed up a lot, so we've been taking them out a lot more. I also now get free bags of chicken scraps and necks from Tyler, Kat's boyfriend (who we adopted Snorf from) who works at a BBQ chicken place 5 min away from our apartment. Now I only have to worry about sourcing turkey and beef and pork. He can bring me several shopping bags a week. This is so awesome!

Trying To Introduce A New Dog In The Pack

Right? I scored. They also just took Shane's spot on the couch (we're about to watch some Archer, ahaha). Both are snoring, it is awesome.
I've been feeding them the chicken scraps the last few days because they both had a little bit of cannon butt from beef heart for 3 meals in a row (it was ALL I had, unfortunately, and it was Easter Sunday), and they're both back on track. Took them for a nice long walk, then they wrestled on the bed and couch when they got home and now they're both sleeping. I love this!

Calvin almost jumped a neighbor's 6 foot fence, trying to get two raccoons who thought it would be fun to walk along the top of the fence. I hate raccoons and oppossums anymore. lol

Hahaha, your boys sound hilarious. Snorf started randomly barking at nothing in the alley, and his bark is so cute that I started laughing. He seems to charm everyone, too. Gimli is not nearly as good as he is with strangers. Snorf will jump up and give kisses, Gimli hides behind me and barks.

Maybe Snorf will help Gim come out of his shell on walks! It sure worked for Calvin, especially when I walked them on a coupler. Calvin had no choice but to go up to people. lol
Yeah, I thought about getting one of those coupler-type leashes. That or a leash for Gim that says Caution! or "Shy dog". He's getting better, but strange men tend to freak him out for some reason.

Out here they have been posting a bunch of flyers about tying a yellow ribbon on a dog's leash, or using a yellow leash, if your dog is shy or aggressive so people know to stay away. Not sure if it has caught on yet, though.
The coupler was nice, but I like separate leashes, so I can correct the dog who is being naughty, if need be.

I think I've only seen ONE dog in Toronto who had a yellow ribbon tied on his leash. I'm glad I already knew what it was, so I gave him space. I think Gim would be even worse if I was pregnant, too. He is sooo protective, even of Shane. He will bark until the perceived threat has ambled away. Otherwise, he continues with a low growl. I hate to see the person who breaks in my apartment. He may be a smaller guy at 39 lbs, but he will eff you up, hahaha
