On February 28, 2012, I posted about our friends little 8 month old bichon shihtzu puppy Archie who was very fearful of other dogs and a little snappy if they got too close. Zack has now visited Archie a few times and has been so patient with him giving him lots of space when Archie was feeling overwhelmed and snappy and yet still enticing him to play at every opportunity. I never taught Zack to be so good with puppies I think he just has that "in him" and "knows" the right thing to do.
On Good Friday we went over for dinner and took Zack for another visit. Well it was like night and day and Archie actually was happy to see Zack when we arrived and right away started playing with him. Yay Archie!!! It was amazing and definitely a breakthrough and they never stopped playing all night. Rachel & Jamie were overjoyed to see their little pup finally playing with another dog and I was happy for them. I am so proud of how Zack was able to help Archie out in the confidence department and we will definitely get them together more often now.
Archie is such a cute sweet little dog and gives lots of kisses and frenchies without warning - I must remember when I pick him up to cuddle him to keep my mouth shut!!!!
Next time we visit I will take some photos of Archie the little white fluff ball.
