Barqs warmed up almost immediately. None of her usual growling and snipping. Tippy, the puppy, is running up and playing with her, they are bowling each other over, sharing toys, playing chase, pawing at each other, and Tippy is licking Barq's face. Since Tippy barks quite a bit when playing, and tries to chase Pepper, Pepper is having NONE OF IT. She just goes in a corner and barks and growls. We had to put her in her crate for a while.
Now Barqs, the old lady, is worn out and sleeping on my lap. Pepper is trying to sleep in her bed next to my chair. Tippy is sitting in front of her barking his fool head off. Pepper keeps giving her 'warning sneer'. Why does she feel threatened by this dog, but by no other?
