A Three Dog Circus

While my brother was out of town for a few days, we welcomed Doc as our first four-legged guest in the new apartment.  Doc is a sweet, nine-year-old senior rescue Likely due to his past of bouncing between homes, Doc was understandably nervous for the first 24 hours
While my brother was out of town for a few days, we welcomed Doc as our first four-legged guest in the new apartment. 

Doc is a sweet, nine-year-old senior rescue

Likely due to his past of bouncing between homes, Doc was understandably nervous for the first 24 hours of his stay. He had an anxious energy and kept his distance from the local wildlife.

Every day is a safari with these two

“Are they always like this?”

Over the next few days Doc acclimated to his vacation surroundings.

Penny didn’t really leave him much of a choice

I think Eko and Penny were a great resource for Doc. Not only did they provide company, they also helped Doc feel at ease.

The pups even shared their favorite tanning spots with our guest

In return for Penny’s hospitality, Doc made sure she never missed seeing a squirrel on our walks

And when they happened to see squirrels in opposite directions? Let’s just say I’m going to need a good orthopedic surgeon

Although Doc stayed with us less than a week, I was impressed at the dramatic change in his behavior. Emily even asked, “Is Doc okay? He seems so….relaxed.”

Finding comfort for a rescue pup can be an elusive goal, but thanks to Eko and Penny we were able to make Doc feel right at home.

A perfect fit

Doc was ecstatic to see James and he is now happily back with my brother. But I’m glad he now knows our apartment is another place he can feel safe and at ease.

You know who can’t feel at ease? Other German Shorthaired Pointers in our neighborhood. Penny keeps sprinting up to them thinking that they’re Doc .The results have been predictably hilarious.

“I’M NOT DOC!”

Whoops!

Comments for A Three Dog Circus

  1. I bet Doc enjoyed the neverending entertainment while being your guest , think that’s like having netflix+firestick+sky without a break :o)

  2. Me says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!

    I feel Penny’s pain. In my mid-teens I was walking through the village to meet a friend and saw what I thought was her…I went and jumped on her back. Only it wasn’t her. Ooops 😉

  3. Sammie is like that with other boxers – she always thinks they’re her best buddy Boomer!!

  4. Victoria says:

    Doc is well loved by all of your brother’s family – 2 legged and 4 legged – he is a lucky rescue pup – or maybe you guys are all lucky to know him – kind of goes both ways (at our house at least)

  5. Penny sees GSH ‘spot’s and her chaos trigger goes off. Way too funny.

  6. Kismet says:

    Rescues Kaci and Kali know. Kaci, especially, is terrified that she’ll be left there at PetSmart or Petco alongside the adoptable dogs.

  7. You are so right about rescues, it takes awhile to settle in. I know that Jack was a huge help in calming Maggie’s fear’s when she first joined us. It was kind of…if Jack’s okay with it, then I guess I am too.

    My heart skips a beat everytime I see Doc and you share his adventures too – being a GSP owner definitely have a soft spot for that big fella and so happy for him to have found such a loving family including his four legged family.

  9. Oh, P. You’re such an adorable goofball. Well done, Doc. You managed to fit right in to the doggie sofa sandwich.

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

    LOL! You got some great funny shots! Doc is lucky to have a great family to hang out with.

  12. Great seeing Doc again! Glad he settled in for his visit 🙂 Sad for Penny that her “new” friend had to leave though.

  13. Looks like a great time was had by all. Cute picture of Doc with his foot on his nose.
