This is Bosley:
Furstly I left lots of pee-mails so evfurryone who comes after me will know *I* was there, BOL!
Then I hunted some good sniffs under a bush, and when I came up fur air, eeuuww, there was a tick crawling on me...sheesh, this shelter is so rural they can't keep up with tick control on their grounds.
Then the shelter lady let us inside the big doggy meet and greet/playroom.
There were several other ladies there, too. Then...Bosley came inside the room, too. I perked up and we exchanged sniffs and a few wags. Bosley appeared to be a young dude, about the same height as me, but thinner. A nice terrier mix.
Well, we decided to circle each other, to see who could get in the most sniffs of the good parts, OMD! I won...he smelled well...like a doggy!
Then I got a bit pushy and humped him...oops...I furgot my manners...and he snarked at me. So I stopped...and went ovfur to pawppy, Bosley came there too, and then I tried the same maneuver as befur...and got snarked at again, This time Bosley decided to leave me and went to stand behind his lady. And totally ignored me the rest of the time, no tail wagging, no playing...he seemed to say, 'nope I do not think you will make a good roommate/brofur.' (When he furst had seen me he wagged his tail and did a great doggy grin...)
When I tried to go back to see him he just walked the other way...sigh...
One of the ladies present there was a doggy behaviorist. She told my peeps she felt that I was displaying this dominance behavior because I was feeling anxious and perhaps insecure.
She thought that this was my way of indicating that after 13 years I didn't truly want to have a live in brofur, despite of what Growlmy & Pawppy were thinking about it.
They all did say I was not aggressive or nasty, just being needy of being an only pup.
They said I was a handsome dude, and looking furry well and healthy even at my age. Well, of course!!
Well, this ends the hunt fur a furbling fur little old me...my peeps are bummed, but well, better to have one happy pup than two that are unhappy or not getting along.
I went home and took a nap:))
