Film at 11:00

One of the benefits of having a puppy is watching how my old dogs respond.

Dinah, the 106 pound, ten year-old labrador retriever has been frightened. She runs out of the room when Bess shows any interest in her.

Alice, the eleven year-old hound dog has not been frightened, but she is often crabby and disinterested.

But yesterday, Bess gave the girls a lesson in playing. They actually romped around the yard a little bit. It is a true joy to watch the old gals re-learning how to stick their butts up in the air and paw the puppy with glee.

I may post a video as soon as I get my camera back.

There's something to be said for sticking one's butt up in the air with glee.

Our #1 dog was none too happy when the 2nd dog was brought into the family. They are all cool and happy with each other now though.

Puppies do bring out the best in all of us.

I think all old girls need to remember how to stick their butts in the air and roll around on their backs with glee!

They look like they're having such a great time—I want a puppy.

I'm jealous. I'd love to have dogs, but not till we have a house and yard first. Sigh.

New dogs remind old dogs of old tricks is a good thing. : ) So glad you are enjoying her.

Aww, I love to see that playful youthfulness return to an older pet. Sweet.
