Aren’t they adorbs? These days they hang out together while we’re at work — as opposed to being separated by a baby gate b/c Ava is a tenacious jerk sometimes — and their bond has gotten even stronger. I think it was just the right timing :) Of course this peace only occurs when I’m not home (Josh took this photo); nowadays I lay on the floor with them once I get home (less jumping and barking that way) so Ava can suck on my face while Wally tries to become a fur stole around my neck. This lasts a minute or two before they run off to grabs tennis balls. I love my dogs.
