Bok had a few of his friends visiting yesterday. Three of them are from next door, and one from about 500 metres away; they visit on a regular basis. They all get on with each other very well.
This is Bok (left) with his rival Iggy Pup. They are the only two males amongst the gang; Iggy Pup being 'complete', whereas Bok isn't. They have very similar markings, but are not related.
And this is Bok with his little harem of admiring girlies. In the background Lulu, in front of her is Izzy, and behind Bok is Jinxy.
Iggy Pup and Jinxy are the parents of Lulu.
They ran around the fields for a while, sniffed each other's bottoms, then went their ways. I always like to see them socialising; it's their home just as much as it is ours.
How wonderful! When we first got Ginger we lived out in the country, and a small group of dogs used to show up every morning after breakfast to visit with her. It's one of my favorite memories from those days! I'm glad Bok has so many friends and playmates!ReplyDelete
One was missing; usually there are 6.Delete
You can ever have too many friends. Good for Bok that they visit often.ReplyDelete
And they all ge ton so well.Delete
What a sociable boy Bok is, good to know he has so many friends - it can be lonely for a dog living on his own.ReplyDelete
No chance of loneliness here. Dogs everywhere.Delete
Well, at least Bok's harem is safe with him. Greetings Maria xReplyDelete
Lady M insisted.Delete
That's true. There's no danger of anyone knocking on the door with an armful of BokReplyDelete
look-alike puppies. Wouldn't they be cute though !
Our first dog here (Hamlet) had offspring all over the place.Delete
Both of our boys, Buddha and San Geraldo, are neutered; doesn't stop the rivalry. Generally, however, they are the best of friends despite the 8 year age difference.ReplyDelete
Rivalry between males is in-built, with all creatures.Delete
Our dogs go out on a pack walk each day whilst Im at work. A dog Walker takes them. I get the odd photo like this of them in the fields in their pack. The dogs think I don't know.ReplyDelete
Ours just turn up one by one.Delete
My cats have visiting friends who stop by for a good fight.ReplyDelete
Cats rarely like each other; even when they're shagging they moan.Delete
They're probably saying "for God's sake hurry up".Delete
Interesting that Bok enjoys visits like that. Most dogs guard their property and dont care for canine visitors.ReplyDelete
I imagine that they think of each other as part of a small select community.Delete
Oh that's so heartwarming to see. Bok is lucky to have all the friends to play with on a regular basis.ReplyDelete
They're a bit like your lot on the golf course!Delete
Oh, what a difference a country makes. I love that they all get on so well. I do hope you don't let Bok go off with them as the pack mentality kicks in sometimes. They can get into trouble. I know of farmers who shoot dogs in packs because of their livestock. But, that picture is priceless. My life revolves around my dogs. People where I live keep their dogs in pens or chained up which is horrible as dogs love to run free.ReplyDelete
The visitors are very welcome to visit, but Bok isn't allowed to visit them!Delete
They make a fine group. The nicest thing in the world is to see dogs playing or sitting in the sunlight. Pure joy.ReplyDelete
I agree; and playing with my grandsons.Delete
Nice to see a group of dogs getting along with each other. Wish that our two rottweiller girls could have fun with other dogs, but there are none around!ReplyDelete
Great for them all to socialise.ReplyDelete
It would be good if all human neighbors got on as well.ReplyDelete
I've always been fascinated by the social life of dogs. Cats, though, are another story altogether!ReplyDelete
So nice to see dogs playing together happily. Beautiful bunch!ReplyDelete
