Last weekend Arlo and I traveled to Lancaster, PA to spend some time with one of my best friends (and my former college roomie) and her dog, a lovely black lab. We didn’t have a lot planned other than catching up, knitting, and hanging out with the dogs. As it turned out, the dogs had so much fun together that we spent a good part of the weekend just watching them play.
Callie was a perfect play friend for Arlo–tolerant and generous, and very clear about the rules (which she got to set because [a] she is older, [b] she’s a she, and [c] Arlo’s enthusiasm for play can sometimes be overwhelming). The video is 3 short clips from lots more play that I was able to film, but it’s representative of their interactions: lots of give and take, pauses to regroup, and two really happy dogs.
