Cooper and King are friends,
but when we first introduce them I like to keep them separated enough to allow Cooper to get a grip and not be too aggressive.
I held King so Cooper had no choice but to calm down.
I expected him to stop jumping around and being too excited before I let King down on the floor.
King is under 4 pounds and Cooper is 22 pounds.
Cooper being calm is important with that much size difference.
Cooper did great calming down and being a good boy, so I put King down and watched them as they greeted and sniffed.
It’s so nice to be able to provide a good meeting like this.
Cooper doesn’t get enough dog socialization so rare times like these are a gift to him.
