The Icing on the Cake

Zack has been so great since we got Molly.   There have been ups and downs and challenges of course getting a rescue dog but we have overcome most of them (we are still working on a few :) and Zack has helped Molly so much.   One reason for getting a second dog was for companionship and a playmate for Zacky.  Molly I don't think has ever had the chance to play, did not know how to play and was just dumbfounded when Zack would try and entice her by bounding round making a fool of himself.   He tried so hard poor boy but Molly didn't clue in and I had come to terms with the fact that that is ok and at least they get along really well and there were no other problems between them.

Little by little tho Zacky  didn't give up and over the last couple of weeks I have seen the spark in Molly's eye and she started to play with toys and found out how much fun it is.    Her and Zack would play tug of war.    Also there have been moments when I could tell she was thinking about playing but just didn't have the nerve.   This past week things have changed and now this morning for the past half hour Zack and Molly have been rolling round on the floor together, mouthing, pouncing on each other!!!!  It is sooooo brilliant.   Molly loves to bite Zacky's feet and drop him to the ground then Zacky grabs Molly's long mustache and drags her around.   She doesn't mind and goes back for more.    She gives as good as she gets.    I am so happy Zack has a playmate now.   How can you not want to play with Zack,  he is the podgiest, scruffiest, wiry haired best dog ever!!!

When outside and they are running round the yard, I am not sure if it is because she is white, lightning fast when she runs (like a bunny)  but Zack screams like a banchee chasing her which freaks her out a little BOL!!!   

I have no pictures yet of them playing as when it happens I didn't want to disturb them by going to get my camera but one day I will capture the joy that is now in our house.
