How Are These Two Getting Along?

How are they getting along?

It is a work in progress and knowing both dogs well.

This picture is a result of 6 weeks of working with Remy to be able to lie down and stay. It was also taken after a busy day of visiting the beach for 90 minutes and then an hour of puppy training class.

So basically a tired puppy means we are all much happier!

Remy is 15 weeks old and about 27 pounds.

My older dog took about 6 months before she bonded with my puppy, now 3 years old. They will be friends before you know it. I have more problems with having to stop them from playing due to my older dogs arthritis. In no way did getting a rambunctious puppy make her life more miserable(irritated maybe). Ace is just teaching the puppy boundaries, eventually the puppy will learn and they will thrive together!

Another great thing about having my puppy with my older dog........My older dog was loosing confidence from a lack of vision and other health issues. I think the puppy has helped her through and I would say even extended her life. She was deteriorating quickly and I thought she wouldn't make it long. Now 3 years later she is getting around way better, off her medications(pain), and joining me on more adventures, that I thought she would never have been able to do again.

From the other side I can tell you that I am very happy with my decision even though I to regretted it for months when my puppy was younger.

Stay positive!!

Thanks so much, Amanda! That makes me feel better. I do hope they get along better once Remy "calms" down at least some.

I would have waited until Ace was gone. Bringing a new pupoy into a home where thete is a much older dog who has health issues would be very stressful for Ace. He has had his time with Lindsay halved, perhaps more. I brought a new young, rescue cat into the lives of our two olders cats and thete is no doubt it made all their lives miserable, to my undying regret.. I had previously introduced puppies to much older dogs, which was disastrous. Never again! Lindsay, thete would always be other Weim's in the years ahead, after Ace!

Remy does the "sphinx" lay down. So silly! Ace has such a sweet face. Senior dogs are my favorite.

You are so patient! He is growing like a weed, so very handsome. Of course Ace is more handsome. I tired dog is a good dog, I say.
