Oscar goes home tomorrow sometime, but it's been a great few days. He has been awesome for Bruce! They've become good friends, and played a lot. Bruce even went for his first walk into town (which is really busy), and was very brave having his buddy to show him how it's done. He did better than I ever thought he would do the first time, especially since he can be timid in new situations. I watched him closely, and treated a lot. He never hesitated to take a treat, so I knew he wasn't being pushed too far.
Oscar deserves a medal or even a parade after putting up with Bruce lol. I left Bruce with the hubby this evening and took Oscar for a run to give him a break, and let each dog have some one on one time. Oscar has been a patient, gentle teacher, but also not afraid to put Bruce in his place when he has gotten a little too bossy.
Next weekend Bruce and I are going to my best friends place for the weekend so he can play with her 2 labs who are both also very good with puppies. I can't wait, especially knowing how well Bruce has done in the last few days.
Here's a pic from this evening after a play session. Don't mind Bruce's ears, Oscar felt that I needed to re-post them, and this was while I was letting them air out.
