Dannan doesn't know it yet, but he's going to meet Bailey tomorrow. Bailey is my sister J's dog, and J and her family are in town for a visit. They are staying at my parents' house, which is probably a good thing.
Typically, Bailey doesn't get along with other dogs. Dannan has his challenges with other dogs, too. He's usually fine with dogs that are smaller than he is (perhaps because he lives with Min Pins?), but he takes issue with dogs the same size or larger. It's like he thinks that he's got to prove something, and he thinks that the best defence is a good offence. So we'll see how it goes tomorrow when they meet. I hope they get along!
