An Olive Branch

It finally happened today.

The warring factions seem to have come to a peace agreement. An olive branch was extended and happily received as both parties seemed willing to work things out. It was a ratty old tree branch to be exact, not a legitimate olive branch, but the results were the same.


Who knew a ratty old stick could bring them together?

He even let her climb on top of him and straddle his neck. That's HUGE in dog language.

And he laid down so she could get the stick and allowed her to hold one end and walk next to him when he could have easily taken off and left her behind.

She chased him relentlessly.

But they ended up wandering around the yard together happily playing with this stick like they've been pals for life.

It was amazing! And it only took 14 days - a fortnight to go from bitter enemies to friends. If only us humans could work things out so well...

Maybe we've found the key to world peace??

It seems to be working perfectly.

I hope they go on and on being best pals. Do you worry about them joining forces and turning their combined mischief on you?

It's going to be an interesting year.

I love their new relationship, and yes, that doggy body language speaks heaps.

Well done. Maybe I should start carrying some sticks in my purse!!

Dogs really know how to have fun. I could watch them run around and play forever.

What a wonderful home and family you provide for them.
