Sadie is VERY protective of me. She even gets jealous when my mom hugs me. So I wasn't sure how she'd react to someone hugging and kissing me, etc. I'm happy to report, though, that my boyfriend loves Sadie, and Sadie loves him, too!
The first meeting was interesting. She was excited for a new person to come over, but then once she saw this person sitting close to me, and then taking me away, she wasn't too sure. Since then we've had a few more outings...to the lake, the dog park, etc. And for the most part things are fine. She does bark every once in awhile when he is hugging me, and she did end up sleeping right in between us one night lol. And of course, she gives me a biggggg guilt trip when I leave with him. But other than that, they're friends :)
He even took her to the park alone one day when I was at a doctor's appointment! Here are some pics he took:
She had a blast! And here's one from a day we all went to the lake by his house:
Did anyone else have an issue introducing their significant other and their dog? My boyfriend grew up where dogs stayed outside, so he is still trying to adjust to Sadie being in the house and sleeping on my bed...but hopefully things will be ok with that aspect eventually, too!
