Pets of the Month...

Best Friends Forever (BFF's)

From the moment Pepper and Harley met they became close pals (Best Friends Forever... or BFFs).
Harley was 15 months old and Pepper only 3 months old when the first butt sniffing and barking began. After the first chase and romp, the friendship was cemented (video 1 below).

Each time they saw eachother the two dogs would leap and dance in their joy and the play wouldn't stop for 2 to 3 hours. Afterwards, Harley and Pepper napped soundly and recharged for their afternoon games like taking turns teasing with toys, a hearty tug-a-war, and gentle keep away games. In the video below watch them trade off a 3" piece of cardboard (video 2 below).

I've watched their affection for eachother grow and it is so humbling to see their great capacity for love.

This means that a dog will have all of the basic emotions: joy, fear, anger, disgust, and, yes, love, but the dog does not experience the more complex emotions like guilt, pride, and shame.
