I have a new co-worker on Friday nights and she brings her dog to work too. He's a 70lb 2yr old German Shepard. Both the Shepard and Fizzgig are'nt terribly well socialized with other dogs. They're a bit on the idiotic side. Fizzgig tends to be too quick and rough and the shepard is just a dork and for some reason other dogs just don't like him. Anyway, we decided to try and socialize them together. Fizzgig kicked the 70lb German Shepard's butt. It was so funny. He was'nt being aggressive, just overly playful. He kept trying to play bitey face and it terrified the shepard. He had the poor dog who is over 3 times his size quivering in fear. This from a small dog who can't even stand in place without falling over.
I also recently found out that my little Balinese kitten actually likes Fizzgig. I always thought she was pretty much annoyed with him, but was more tolerant than the other cats about being constantly tackled. Well one day Fizzgig was sleeping in my lap which is normally her place to be. She jumped up into my lap and snuggled down with him and started cleaning his ears. It was so sweet. The only interaction they normally have is him constantly trying to tackle her down to the ground so he can cover her in kisses and she gets mad. Hopefully when they both start to grow up more (they're around the same age, about 1 1/2 years) they'll calm down and become friends.
Oh, and thanks to Joey, I bought Fizzgig a dinosaur Cuz. It is apparently the best thing I've ever bought. He spends hours and hours and hours making that thing squeak. He's got one for home and one for work.
I almost forgot to ask... Does anyone know where I can get a dog sweater or jacket that accomodates a harness? I had to cut a hole in the sweater I bought him so I could pull the leash through.
