We have babysat Penny before. She is a Golden Retriever, part Lab who is just over two years now, and still full of that puppy spunk. Perfect for playing with a kitten who knows no boundaries!
Most of our time has been spent watching and refereeing play matches between the two. With three fur balls in my house, I have had little time to devote to projects to share or even just to work on!
Charlie is good at signaling when he has had enough. He will (if he can) bounce up and away down the hall. This is where our supervision comes in, because if Penny is all riled up from the wrestling, she will prance after him. But a quick “Penny, no,” and she will stop, reluctantly, but she will stop.
When we let Penny out of her kennel after a time out to cool off, right away, she tries to find Charlie and give him a little nudge with her nose, getting him to play again.
Audrey likes to sit back and watch the matches. You can just see the relief on her face that it’s not her being kangaroo kicked, jumped on or nipped. The two
more immature younger ones cancel each other out for annoyances, and she’s back to her cuddly self.
