Wordfull Wednesday. Best Buds, Finally!

By
Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate BR030809000 AZ Broker BR030809000

It happened today!  While I was busy in my office the 'boys' decided to take a nap out in the family room instead of in my office.   When I went out there I saw them all snuggled up together -  a first!   Barney is the white 15 year old Grandpa dog and Norman is the 3 year old black/white shiatsu. Barney is pretty much blind and can see only a bit out of one eye - and he's totally deaf. He was a bit grumpy with his new little brother for the first month or so, getting in and taking up his space.  But finally, after 6 months they're snuggling on 'their' sofa.  Previously they each had 'their' own side. Awwww.

Norman has been the best gift for Barney!  The true gift of a best buddy!

 

Can we go to Home Depot today Mom?!!

Hi Bill yes they seem to follow each other from room to room now.  Find one and you'll find the other!

Hi Kat Palmiotti it's is adorable.  Barney being the grumpy grandpa just didn't want a new best bud but Norman worked his magic!

I think it was a matter of Barney warming up to another critter in the house - he was a solo dog for quite some time.  Thanks for popping by today Michael Jacobs !

They are a couple of cuties.  They are inspiring me to take a nap.  I would, but I get to show a house so, no rest.  Hope you are doing well.

Well Ray Henson if we all took as many naps as dogs do we'd never get anything done!  No naps for us!!

Hi George Souto well the new little guy wanted to be buds from the start but our old Grandpa Dog Barney was not so sure!!  After about a month he started to warm up and actually would let me know if Norman needed something.  And as time went on they kept moving closer.  Nice to see!

I shared your photos with Ty and Jessica.  While I can't understand their choices, I'm certainly glad for you and Norman.

That's funny Endre Barath, Jr. butt to butt a cat and dog?  Now that's interesting!  I'm happy that these two follow each other around constantly.  Where one is, the other one is.  Easy to find them!

Hi Cara Marcelle Mancuso Norman is such an adorable little guy.  How anyone could give him away, barring an extreme situation, I don't know. AND...I am glad he's part of our family now!  Thank YOU!!
