Lola and Bear - Part 3

I have done a couple posts, (here and here) about Lola and Bear.  If you remember Lola and Bear were not to fond of each other when they first met.  And they were slowly getting better in my last post.  Lola got to go visit Bear and Otis quite a few times in December.  So they had a lot of time to work out their issues.  And I am happy report that they are doing well together.

They really just ignore each for the most part. But they are great team when it come to squirrel hunting.  They can keep squirrels trapped in trees for hours.  And Lola even ran into Bear a couple times and he did not even care.  The only issue that we still have is when Lola and Otis are playing.  Bear still does not seem to understand the play aspect and start to go after Lola. So for the time being he is inside while the ball is being thrown for Lola and Otis.

Bear will even share the couch with Lola now.  Although, Lola will not get up on her own.  Somebody has to go over to the couch and tell her is it ok and make sure Bear doesn't growl at her.  I guess she learned not to rustle any feathers.

Lola and Bear sleep on the couch.  Yes, that is how bear sleeps.

And because I can't leave Otis out.  Here is a picture of the three of them, Bear, Otis and Lola.  I could not get them all sitting in a line.  Lola had to be the odd ball


  1. Looks like great fun! Bear will come around more and more every time! How can he not like Lola?!

  5. Yay for such great progress!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  8. Hi! Thank you for coming by my bloggie today. It's ever so nice to meet you! I'm very much glad that everybuddy is learning to get along. I'm with Lola, though. I don't like to ruffle feathers either.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  9. Well done on the progress! Toni actually doesn't even like it sometimes when Téa plays by herself, much less with us or other dogs. (We think wherever she lived in the past was very anti-playing and now she thinks that's how it is everywhere.) We've had to work hard, as well, to let them sort themselves out without letting things go to far.
