Mr. N rarely encounters dogs smaller than him. It’s even more uncommon that he meets a puppy smaller than him. Mr. N’s foster mom invited him over to play with her new puppy who is this teeny tiny Maltese who weighs two pounds soaking wet because she thought Mr. N might be a good playmate.
I was uncertain how Mr. N would react because I don’t know if he has ever met a puppy smaller than him. Mr. N doesn’t like big boisterous puppies (which is the usual kind he meets) so I was curious to see how he would handle the tiny puppy.
As it turns out, Mr. N and the puppy play similarly. They bounce about and wrestle and chase each other around and had a blast running around. He was extremely tolerant of the puppy and didn’t correct him at all even when the puppy tried to hump him. None of the other dogs in the house really play with the puppy because they get annoyed by him or they’re too big.
But Mr. N and the puppy were a great match.
Mr. N wants to know if we can borrow him and take him home. But only if I promise that he still gets the lion’s share of the attention!
