When Cooper comes to visit

My sausages are very picky when it comes to making new friends.

They are the (lovable) snobs of the small dog world and pretty much only like other small short-haired pooches, preferably their own kind. The majority of breeds that don’t fit the bill instigate their attack mode and get ferociously growled and barked at – much to the embarrassment of their humans…

When our neighbours got a little border collie puppy by the name of Cooper, I had already envisaged a lifetime of never-ending barking. Much to our surprise and delight (and everyone else’s within a radius of 10k’s!), they have become great buddies and occasionally get to hang out together.


Maybe there’s hope that one day the ‘inner circle of tolerable breeds’ will consist of a little more than their own kind!
