Can't We All Just Get Along?

When we first decided to get a German Shepard I was really, really nervous about how Toby and Kadira would get along. My fears weren't entirely unjustified. Kadira has never been mean or aggressive towards Toby, but she certainly plays rough. TOO ROUGH, and Toby does not like it. The last eight months of my life have consisted of Toby manically barking at Kadira and Kadira attempting to break loose so that she can tag the back of Toby's neck. When we do get them to play nice Toby is greeted with a giant WOMP of Kadira's forepaw smacking him in the face. To be honest, if I were Toby I would not like Kadira much either.

But recently there has been a huge dynamic shift in our house that I have to share. I'm going to pause for a moment so that you can now ridicule the fact that I once again videotaped my dogs like they were children....I'm seriously go ahead.....are we done? Okay cool. So recently when I get Kadira out of her crate in the morning Toby is anxiously waiting so say hello. While the rest of the day is filled angry barking, the morning consists of the following greeting which, quite frankly, is adorable.

(Please note that these videos were taken with my ipod, which explains their low quality as well as my finger making an appearance throughout.)

First, Kadira approaches Toby and the way Toby reacts is truly unprecedented. Please ignore the unmade bed.

Now watch the manner in which Kadira gets Toby to come say hi. Adorable.

I am not going to lie, if these two can get along it gives me hope for world peace.

This is actually the cutest thing I have ever seen. How do people even think babies are cuter than dogs? They look like they really love each other! Look at all those wagging tails.

Also, that is totally not what I expected your voice to sound like! It's so funny when someone's real voice is different from the "blog voice" you've given them.

They are so cute!! My boys approach larger dogs the same way that Toby goes up to Kadira. But I love how Kadira tries to show that it's okay to come up to her and she won't pounce on him.

And I have 10 times more pictures/videos of my dogs than my husband and myself! They ARE my babies!! :o)

Awww, this is the sweetest thing ever! Of course, I'm mad at you though because now you've got me thinking about a second dog.

I wanted a little dog but with Maya I figured it just wasn't possible. Now I'm thinking.......
