Eko and our guest, Cash, began this week a world apart.

Eko stayed on one side of the room and cash kept to the other

But as Cash became less nervous and Eko became less anxious the two pups realized that they shared similar interests.

Both Eko and Cash wanted to play with the tennis ball so I grabbed a couple for our run to the dog beach

The run to the beach completely changed the dynamic between Eko and Cash.  The two realized that not only could they be friends, but that they could accomplish more together than each one could individually.  For example:

It’s near impossible to ignore Eko when he wants to go for a walk, but it is fully impossible to ignore Eko AND Cash.  They are quite persuasive

Not only did the two dogs become friends, they also became partners in crime.

I turned around from my desk to find Cash acting as lookout while Eko tried to get into who knows what kind of mischief!

Last night when I sat down on the couch, I was joined by both Eko and Cash.  I have noticed that the more comfortable dogs are with each other, the closer they will lay down near each other.

I was happy to have a pup under each arm and happy at how far Eko and Cash’s friendship had come in just a few days

I hopped up to get ready for bed and when I came back to read a bit more, this is what I found.

My seat was filled!  But I didn’t mind moving for these two

It’s incredible how much has changed since Cash first arrived.  It’s been a fun and educational week for me.  Thanks to everyone who offered support and tips about dog-sitting!

    aaww – that is so super cool! A partner in crime. hhmm – that gives me something to think of. Maybe *I* need a partner in crime… off to do some research. Thanks for the heads up on this. XOXO – Bacon

    Puppybuddys furrever!

  5. It’s been so interesting following this story – I am a real fan of Cesar Millan – he educates us humans really well on the way to raise healthy happy dogs – and your adventures with bringing these two together are, I think, almost text book Cesar teachings! How super cool was it to see those two cosied up on the couch together! Good job Will 🙂

    So happy that it is working out so well after a slow start. They will sure miss each other and the next visit, you may need to nail down your furniture as they will be so happy to see each other it might get wild.

    They make a great team!

  8. Those faces! Impossible to resist, ever. So glad the visitor is working out.

  9. What cuties!! Glad to hear they’re getting along.

  10. We do quite a bit of puppy sitting here. Walker and I have learned to adjust to just about anything that comes our way. But sometimes it takes some work to get the visitor to settle in. Getting to know each other outside always works best. You’re a smart man. And Eko and Cash look like they have minds that work alike. Have fun!

  11. Awww they sure have become the best of friends!

  12. Good gosh, HOW do you get anything done with these two cuties at your side? Those faces could melt butter in Alaska. I like the photo of Cash yawning, after a run at the beach maybe? We’ll it’s always nice to make new friends, way to go guys. And way to keep Will on his toes.
