The Meeting of the Canine Minds and Bumby's Return

Yesterday was pretty exciting around the New Boston Manor.  I took the trek down to The Maven's place to help her bring Stanley the Greyhound, Miss Darcy and Bumby up to the house for Labor Day weekend.

We weren't sure how the Bostons and Stanley would get along, but after a few excited minutes during a "get acquainted" walk, all settled down and hung out in the backyard for a bit.








Then it was time to chow down


 and they did so in unison.



It was a suprisingly drama-free meet and greet.

The felines are living it up in my office/guest room where the Maven is staying while here.  



We still aren't sure how Stan will handle being around cats and especially in a new environment. So we decided to keep them separate until another time.


Bumby will soon roam the house free when Stan leaves with The Maven on Monday!  




Life is slowly returning to "the new California normal".


Have a great Labor Day Weekend!

Phew, always a bit tense when doggie guests come over. I am impressed by the civilized dinner they enjoyed together.

They look so like mutt and jeff when they are all standing eating together, but how nice that they all get along.

BTW it's only been 10 months...lol, but this is the very first year at the fair as locals for us.

Do glad to see that all the dogs and cats are intact and that the Bostons and Stanley took to each other so well. Also, like your new IKEA kitchen table and chairs.
Glad that all are happy and healthy. Will you be helping The Maven return home with Stanley and Darcy? Take care.

Ann,
It's great to see the canines got along well, and I love the picture of them eating together.
That seems to be a definite sign that they accept one another.
Mr. Stanley looks pretty benign, and of course Sadie and Panda probably have learned to get along with a variety of furry house guest in their life.
Bumby and Darcy don't seem concerned about the isolation.
Thanks for sharing how things are progressing at Boston Manor!!! :)
Happy Weekend!
