    Default Banjo's new housemate

    So we moved into our friends' house last week.

    Banjo had already stayed there once for a weekend and we used to regularly visit. Their 5yo lab has stayed at our place too. So they already knew eachother fairly well. But it is so heartwarming to see them together now. They clearly feel so completely comfortable with eachother. They will often walk around really close together, often as a lead-up to play. They play pretty gently usually, occasionally there's quite a bit of play growling and doing zoomies. Their tails barely ever stop wagging it seems.

    The lab really likes me too because she remembers the treats I used to carry for Banjo. I haven't used any treats for a while, but the lab will still regularly greet me by sniffing my hands to check for them. You gotta love that food drive. I just bought a new treat bag and will start doing some loose lead walking training with her because currently I am reluctant to walk her because she pulls too hard for me.

    Will try to take a photo this afternoon. We're taking them for a walk near the river.

    That's lovely Beloz, at least you know Banjo and the lab will love their time together during your house-sitting stint. I love it when dogs are so comfortable with each other, looking forward to photos

    Dead phone and no idea where the camera is...

    One of the cutest things is Banjo copying the lab when she begs for food. She'll sit right next to her in the same position staring at whatever anyone is eating, which she normally never, ever does. But then she gets bored after a few minutes and gives up and lies down. While the lab of course doesn't lose focus until all the food is gone.

    perhaps the lab has not had the solid foundation of Beloz, growing at it for begging lol I remember you posting you did this, it made me laugh, as i do growl if they are sat too close to our table, and they back off also.

    labs n food, yep that is some focus!
    presumably why you rarely see a 4yr lab that's not fat as a house lol
