Mosey and Elliot: the rock duo that could have been

No matter how great a particular handler may be, for some pups, sometimes there’s no substituting a fellow canine. They’re just more comfortable around dogs. Hey, I get it. There are plenty of times I’m not up for hanging out with humans.

When Mosey first arrived, I thought she might have been one of those dogs. From the get-go, she loved Elliot (again, I get it) but she was pretty shy around people. It didn’t take long, however, before she let us know, “Hey, I think I'm into hanging out with you crazy two-leggers after all.”

Ahhh... I'd been hoping she'd come to that conclusion. True, Mosey’s only been around a few weeks, and is still getting her bearings, but signs point in a very promising direction.

That said, she continues her unabashed crush on Elliot. And Elliot, the natural charmer, happily takes her under his furry wing. A few photos from their morning play session, as thought-bubbled by the husky:

“Smell that, Mosey? What am I saying, of course you do. You’re a dog.”

“Aww, what a good girl. We’ll keep ya around, kid.”

“Ok, now be serious and pose for the album cover we would have made had we been a pop rock duo in the 80s.”

Predicted: More good times ahead for those two.

the morning romp

Darla, Beetle and Elliot go kookie ballistic when they see each other at the gate, so romps are a daily must. Shy Beetle's actually a little bit apprehensive around the big, furry confident thing but he's fascinated enough to brave up when the spirit moves. If Elliot only knew how star-struck this nerdy little guy was, but he's too smitten with Darla to notice.
