Meet Freida!

Freida Sunday 15th November



Here she is!

On Sunday we took both dogs up the lane, something we were never able to do with Elsie and Wilma, it has been so so many years since Jon & I walked the dogs together. We were out for about 40 minutes and the dogs were walking alongside each other, both to the left of Jon & I.

After lunch as it was such a lovely day we decided to try putting both dogs in the back of the van and take them over the moors. We put both in the van and had a cup of tea whilst they got use to the situation.

About 10 minutes later we drove up to Danby Beacon and walked along the paths. Freida was definately happier when we were in front as she was pulling when Jon and Elsie were in the lead. There were quite a few of sheep on the moors and Elsie seemed to be showing a bit too much interest, despite being on the lead so we decided to quit qhilst the going was good.

We put both dogs in the back of the van and headed over to Jon's mum. Mavis has 2 dogs so it was a good test. Again we kept hold of the dog's leads and all seemed to get along fine.

Returning home I fed the dogs and Jon let both out into the garden. The coming and going through the kitchen patio doors was always a place of tension as it was here the altercations would take place, but Elsie and Freida seem to manage, but under strict supervision! Just as Jon was bringing in the coal Elsie snapped at Freida. Now when this happened with Wilma there was an almighty scrap often resulting in a vet's bill, but Freida wasn't phased. Jon reprimanded Elsie and Freida carried on as normal.

So this is the current situation which we are working through.

Watch this space!

  1. What a pretty dog! Looks as though she's accepted she's subordinate to Elsie. Fingers crossed . . .

  2. We had a few breath-holding moments when we introduced Roobarb into the household. Being younger and unspayed, she asserted herself over Ellie quite quickly. There were a few scuffles, but no teeth bared. I guess it was a blessing in disguise that R was underweight and with poor muscle tone....People warned us about having 2 bitches, but they rub along fine now.

  6. Sounds as though things are going quite well. Maybe Elsie likes the companionship but just needs to let Frieda know that she came first. :D
