A Doggy Bromance in Action
What an eye-opening experience that long weekend at the cottage was! Mishu seems like an entirely new dog now. After running free, swimming and lake leaping, this shy and timid one-year-old has blossomed. Combined with the training sessions with Lisa, Trish reports that “Mishu’s learning how to have fun, to be fun, and to be playful. More importantly, he’s becoming a much more confident dog.” But, as a foster mom, Trish knows that she can’t accurately assess Mishu’s personality until he’s become completely comfortable in his temporary home. “It’s fascinating to watch the dynamics of this little trio unfold,” she remarks. “It’s like watching my very own doggy bromance. Harley and Mishu are the best of brotherly playmates, tumbling and jousting and zooming all over the place, with one or the other initiating it.”
There’s more than one kind of doggy bromance
Buster, on the other hand, has a different personality and a different energy level. “He’s more of a chill out, pace yourself kinda guy,” says Trish. And yet, he and Mishu are the best of brotherly sleeping buddies.
Doggy bromance makes for good photos
At this point, Trish can finally confirm what she’d suspected when she met Mishu for the first time. “He has a great personality! in true doggy bromance style, he’s bonded well with both Buster and Harley. And,” she adds with a laugh, “with me, of course.” As both a foster mom and a photographer, she’s been doubly blessed. To her, every moment of this experience has been a true Kodak moment.
Now the next phase in Mishu’s foster life begins as CCRT starts to take adoption applications for him. Will his lessons on the proper way to meet and greet new people give Mishu a better chance at a furever home? Will Trish and CCRT insist that any prospective new owner have a companion dog for him?
