It's a standoff. Dog vs cat. The cat set the tone at their first meeting. The dog entered the house for the first time and the cat jumped on his head, yowling a growling. Poor pup, wonderful welcome committee.
Now they watch each other from a distance. Unfortunately, I think the dog is plotting revenge. Toby, the cat, gets a lick or two in whenever possible and, so far, Tempest, the dog hasn't retaliated, but Temp is way too interested in the cat. In any case, I'm watching them carefully and they won't be alone together.
Tempest is one of three dogs I rescued recently from the county shelter. Temp was maybe six months old when he came here. He's mostly grown now and weighs in at about 80 pounds. Toby, of course is my twelve pound demolition machine.
