Robbie is good with Sofi for the most part, which is surprising, because he is agressive with most of the other dogs (not Harley, though). He allows Sofi to get the stick once in while, which makes her happy, and he even played tug with her today. Robbie found his tug toy on the snow and brought it to me. He is extremely strong and it takes all my energy to keep from falling over when I tug with Robbie. Not fair, it isn't, because he has four legs and I have only two and am tall while he is close to the ground. So, Robbie allowed Sofi to play instead.
She is only half of Robbie's size and definitely not nearly as agile, nor fit, having been a city dog for a long time. Within a few seconds Robbie pulled the tug away from Sofi and she would not grasp it again. It was cute to watch them play for a bit. The other dogs are livestock guardian dogs and they do not play ball, stick or tug, so Robbie is enjoying having some one to play with. Now, if he could only teach Sofi to pay attention when the stick is thrown, so I don't have to go show her, that would be great. I am not sure what the chances of that happening at her age, which is 8 years old, but I can always hope. Want to come and play with them?
