|He's a happy guy.|
Fortunately, Ryder spent at least three months living with an older Labrador in his previous home so he is understands how to be respectful of older dogs that do not want to play. After a few unsuccessful invitations to play, Ryder settled on Mike's sister as his playmate. Luna was clearly uncomfortable with the new puppy in the house, but she went about her business searching for snacks in the kitchen. For awhile, Ryder followed Luna from room to room the way Luna used to follow Amber.
I think it is going to take some time for these two to find a routine that works for both of them. I am hopeful that Ryder will get Luna to play a little in the yard when she feels more relaxed around him. In the mean time, it is nice to know that they are respectful of each other and can co-exist without too much trouble.
