|I'm too cheap to buy real party hats|
As I was creating this picture, this is what the dogs were doing:
I never thought this day would come, but they are actually (sort of) getting along! The trick? Oddly enough, antlers. Mushroom has magically gotten over her resource guarding (though we prefer to be on the safe side and keep the high-value squeaky toys away). She didn't mind that Badger basically circled her as she chewed her antler, and after a while, Badger gave up and grabbed the other antler. She did occasionally try to hoard both antlers, but Badger was surprisingly good-natured about it. Hey, if that's what it takes for them to stop roughhousing, it's well worth the money!
Also, I ordered Mascot's reversible puffer jacket from Doggy Loot, and it arrived today. The forecast showed snow for tonight, so I'll post pictures if we get a chance to try it out.
