We've been getting to know Shachah, inlcuding how to spell his name correctly. :-)
He seems to like me, he wags his tail and wants me to pet him. I figured out yesterday that he needs to be let out of the chain link kennel to relieve himself, doesn't want to soil his kennel. So now he gets the run of the backyard a few times a day. This way he's getting to know the smell of our kitties and Ozzie.
He's getting more used to Ozzie too. No more barking or growling there. I haven't let them meet without a fence in between them yet, but I think it might be time to try pretty soon.
Last night I suddenly thought about our neighbor's super cute little King Cavilier cross, Kia. She comes over fairly often. She doesn't bother anything so we don't mind her visiting. Well she came over this afternoon just after I let Shachah out of his kennel. I got to her first and petted her to show Shachah that she was okay. He didn't even bark, he just sniffed her. Now that he knows her, I'm pretty sure he won't hurt her. But she does have a tendency to be bossy. She'd better watch her step with the big guy.
I am anxious to let him in with the sheep. Maybe I'll walk him through their paddock and see how they react to him. He walks very well on a leash.
