This is our friend Marli. She is a very bouncy Labradoodle. She came to visit us when her family was having a new fence put up in the back yard. Bella immediately, and rather rudely I thought, reminded her that she was only a guest. Then the fun began. We ran around playing chases and bities until we were tired. Then we came inside. Marli is an outside dog; but it didn't take her long to get comfortable on the chair! She was a very good guest.
Bella and I went to play with her yesterday at her house. She and Bella launched into a wild game of chasing and biting. I spent most of the time exploring their big backyard and garden. That is, when I didn't have to get between Bella and Marli to remind Bella not to be so rough. Marli is an only dog and she doesn't know how to tell Bella off when she's being too wild. I think she thought as Bella was a guest, she shouldn't growl at her. So I had to do it. Bella did calm down a bit. Anyway, we all had a great time. I think we might be invited again.
