TJ hugging Don

TJ is so sensitive and caring. Anytime Don 'hurts' for any reason - the latest is a blown knee, it is TJ to the rescue. And my goodness, if I raise my voice to Don, TJ is right there to hug him. He is the first dog I've ever had that hugs as well as kisses and he is very serious about it. He is the sweetest, kindest dog ever. Taylor has become more able to show affection because of his example. They continue to share the same crate and bed and always seem to need to touch. They mouth wrestle and TJ often goes on his back to give Taylorsue the advantage. The only thing at all negative about our beloved TJ is his pulling on leash. I have tried so many special harnesses and the halti thing for the nose, which I hated. One day we had to quickly put them in a crate and take off for about 30 minutes. When we returned TJs harness was in pieces. I'm sure he asked Taylor to bite it off for him as no way could have have gotten it off himself. These RRs are something with so many similar traits of touching, sharing and so on. I've seen no couch potato traits yet - although they do take good naps, for which we are grateful. They still play gently with the bunny - more they just show a little interest and leave him alone.

I love the picture and the story. It's funny because Zuri, our rescue, is also extremely affectionate and our other ridgie has become more affectionate as well.
As for the halters, have you tried the Easy Walk harness that you hook up in front so that when they pull, it turns them around towards you? I think it's made by the same company that makes the halti (Gentle LEader) That's what I use on mine when I take them for walks together and it works really well for me.

That is the exact harness Taylor chewed off TJ. I'm trying a Sporn now. Thanks, Jackie
