Remember Maru Chan? She's the little cutie and well loved toy poodle of Anzu's Granny Baba who's just a day older than her. I remember the first time we introduced them to each other, it was an instant love for lil Anz. Maru Chan was kinda aloof at that time, hmmm maybe she was shy (or scared). She's not a jealous dog. You rarely hear her barks.. We are so careful to keep a close eye on the two of them when they are together but Maru Chan has never even flinched when Anzu gets too excited and tries to grab her face (ears, eyes, tail, etc.). However, we always let the dog know she's being a good girl and also teach Anzu to be more caress when grabbing her.
The positive reinforcement is always great for dogs -- and for kids as well.
Here's one of the many video clips of them taken last month (february 2010)....
The fascination and fun we see when they play and interacting is priceless. They're just so funny lol.. another video clip
I love Maruchan eversince and I'm loving her more coz she has been a woderful and amazing dog and a playmate to our lil girl.
