or ... A CONVERSATION BETWEEN TWO DOGS
THIS IS "BEAR" - DOUGIE DOG'S BACKYARD FENCE FRIEND
Bear (the Dude in the conversation above) is Dougie Dog's next door sometime-neighbor. He comes to visit his Grandma M. just about every week for a few days, giving him a chance to run free in their fenced backyard, which is up against Dougie's fenced backyard! And if the two happen to be out in their respective yards at that same time, a loud and rowdy play session begins.
They love to run the fence line together, mirror images. Back and forth, up and down, barking along the way, non-stop. And oh, the digging (OH, NO). Sniffing, of course, nose to nose. And being generally playful, challenging one another.
Each are chocolate labs (maybe a touch of something else in their heritage). Each are rescue dogs. Each is around 4-5 years old. Each (at least this week) sporting their blue collars! Each friendly, loving, obedient, attentive to commands - most of the time. Bear is a little more rotund in face and body and not quite as tall as Dougie Dog. But all in all, yes: mirror images, having fun together.
