Doggy friends

Yesterday Em and I took the boys (Toby and Zeek) to meet the dog sitter and their dogs, 3 border collies which are twice the size of Toby and 4 times as big as Zeek. Toby and Zeek will be staying with this family while we are back in Utah packing up our stuff. Toby took to the new dogs rather quickly and started chasing/being chased. Zeek just kept trying to hide behind Em and I. One of the collies took a liking to Zeek and decided to torment him by pushing him and sitting in his hiding places. After he warmed up to the new dogs another collie started herding him like a sheep, she did a very good job keeping him trapped in the corner of the kitchen :)

After all the fun and excitement of making new friends the boys took a nice nap in the back seat while we grabbed lunch and drove to the dog park. This park has separate areas for large and small dogs. This time Zeek only took a few minutes to warm up and they both had lots of fun teaming up to chase the other dogs around, and occasionally stopping to get attention from the other dog owners.

After we got back to the hotel both of the boys just zonked on the bed for several hours. They were so tired that we had to bring their food into the bedroom to get them to even eat!
