Ever since we put Maggie, our 14-year-old black lab down, Tupper (the most awesome cat on the planet) has been working on being able to love on Deuce (the 8 year old chocolate lab that contains more nuts than chocolate). It is a daily process. Starting out Tupper would just try to lay within a couple of feet of Deuce and Deuce would growl at let him know to not get closer. Tupper came back at least once every day inching a little closer every day. D still growls at him but not as much and Tupper just ignores the growls anyway. My cat has a basic understanding of what it takes to reach his goals. Just a little time and effort every day really pay off. After just a few short months, here is what Tupper now gets to enjoy on almost a daily basis while his head remains intact.
