So we have had Otis for 5 months now, give and take a few days or so, and ever since we got him, he has been very fascinated with our other dogs, Luna and Gus.
Gus our 5 yr old dachshund detests Otis with a passion, after all Otis came and stole his attention..or so Gus thinks. Otis has been trying to play with him through out the months to no avail, maybe because of the dynamics, very low to the ground, not so fast running dachshund to a extremely fast, and agile basenji..either way things never worked out…until today..
Gus is sleeping in on of our smaller Varikennels, about 24" x 14" (perfect for a 15 lbs dachshund) when Otis decides to join him. This has never happened before, Otis has never come up to Gus to sleep with him or vise versa..they just don't click..
This is the sight I found when I heard somebody growling really loud in the office..it took me a while to locate where the growl came from...it was Gus inside the kennel, with Otis on top of him..
now they are sleeping ever so soundly together, like only brothers know how to do…
I just thought I'd share, since I am so proud of Gus for finally letting his guard down and enjoying Otis very comfy company..
