I finally named the pup, and Ebbie won out in the end. She and Princess are getting a long great, as long as she doesn’t get too close when Princess is eating something. However they play with one another a lot. Even the cats don’t seem to have a problem with her. Nikko however, is slow to warm up to her. She tries to play with him, but he growls at her. This morning he snapped at her and Princess charged Nikko and they started fighting! I had to yell and pull Princess off him. I’ve never seen them fight like that! She seems very protective of the pup, and she keeps Nikko in his place.
The bunny meanwhile finally seems to be on the mend. No more nasty force feedings every few hours. He still needs to lose weight, but that will be a process over time.
I’m heading to Virginia for about a week to see family. I’m hoping Nikko will learn to play with Ebbie when they are all racing around in my mom’s backyard. I’ll be sure to take lots of photos of them all.
