After Sue left I let them have the run of the house together--other than wild chasing, rugs kicked up, I have seen no problems. They're having a ball. I think she's right--that's what both of them needed. If you can't tell from the above, I'm weakening on my resolve to get Luke a new home. He craves affection. He got out twice today and both times ended up at the front door, saying, "Let me in, please." In fact one time, he almost beat me down the driveway and edged his way in the minute I opened the door. That dog doesn't want to go anywhere--he just wants to be part of the family. I don't think I have the heart to uproot him again.
Yes, I worry about the snapping incidents. One had to do with a toy and is a lesson learned--also part of Luke's assimilation into the household. The other two had to do with that blasted cone of shame...and today it's gone, banished. I think we may be all right.
Please pray that I am making the right decision. It was hard to get a picture of the two of them together--a moving target--but the above is the best I could do.
