The grandson (3 and a half) has finally reached the point where he is not afraid of Jax, our 8 month old GSD. This morning the GS wanted to ride Jax. I wouldn't allow that because Jax is still growing and I don't want to stress his bones, silly as that may sound. Anyhow I've gone from stressing out from trying to keep the pup from bothering the GS and the GS screaming every time the dog comes near him, to thinking it's cute that Jax won't let the GS out of his sight. GSDs are such excellent dogs. Pics to follow; when the two of them will hold still long enough.
