    Default Molly's "cousin" Jackie

    Hi there!
    Yesterday we got a new addition to our familiy - for the next 10 days. My husbands sister is going on holiday, and we promised to take care of her 12 year old cockerspaniel, Jackie. We have looked after Jackie before, but at that time we did not have a lively little cavalier
    Of course we were quite excited to see, how they would get along
    Jackie is an old, tired lady, who just want to cuddle and take slow walks, Molly can play for hours... When Jackie arrived yesterday, Molly immediately found her interesting. Not threatening, but exciting! Jackie found Molly a bit annoying - much too lively and curious. Jackie growls a bit, when Molly comes too close, but now they are sleeping on either side of me, lying still and relaxing
    Jackies "mum" left a few hours ago, so I still have to try to walk two dogs at one time... Luckily I could work from home the entire week, so if necessary I can walk them seperately.
    Here are some pictures - -

    Hello and welcome, Jackie...


    Hi -I want to see what's going over there...


    How close can I get to this exciting new dog??


    Finally sleeping - both of them...

    Thanks everybody! Unfortunately they are not really getting along. It is like following the border guards of the border between India and Pakistan: A lot of strutting about and growling, but not open conflict!
    They can be in the same room, but Jackie growls if Molly gets too close, and Molly barks if Jackie seems to get more attention than her! But I can talk to both at one time, walk them together (one dog running ahead, the other walking behind - I look extremely ridiculous!
    Actually Molly tries to get contact, but she is either ignored or growled at. Our fearless little cavalier has decided not to be intimidated, she "owns" this place and lets Jackie understand that!
    Well, at least they can be in the same room, and it is only 6 more days, but I just had hoped that they would enjoy each other more.

    They will probably start to enjoy each other just as Jackie is leaving! I am sorry they are not happier together from the start though.
