Forced Sister Bonding

My humom is starting to worry a bit that Nymeria and I won’t get along because I’m still a little mean to her when we play outside, or if I try to play with her indoors she ignores me. We don’t like sleeping close to one another and I still get a bit protective over MY humom.

Nymeria has been with us (and in this country) for 4 weeks now. She’s made some progress with other things like potty training, and socializing at doggy daycare but our humom thought that her and I needed some good sister bonding time. Blah.

She thinks that playing fetch together isn’t good enough (because it becomes competitive) and that we need a nice long walk where we can both run free. She decided that the jetty would be the best place to take us (the forest has too many little animals and smells, Nymeria would never come back). We usually go to the jetty with my bestie Wilhelmina and Avalon and Duffy but this time it was what I call “forced sister bonding time”.

The walk started off okay I guess…Nymeria got excited about a bunch of birds in the water.

Nymeria: Hey Mia! What are those white things in the water?? How can we get down there?? I wanna go see!!

Mia: Relax, they’re just birds…probably just lookin’ for fish. We’re not allowed down there. Are you going to be this annoying the whole walk??


Nymeria: I’m not annoying! You’re annoying!



Nymeria: You pick on me all the time!


Mia: That’s what big sisters are for!


Nymeria: Have you looked in the mirror lately?? I’m “bigger” than you!


Mia: Fine, then that’s what OLDER sisters are for! 😛


Mia: I’m going to go find something stinky to eat or roll in

Nymeria: Hey wait up! I want to come!

Mia: Hey! What’s that over there?

Nymeria: Where? What? Oooo…I think I see something!

Mia: I saw it first! It’s mine!


It’s a fish’s head!!! Jackpot!


Nymeria: I’ve never had one of those. Is it any good?



Mia: Are you kidding?? They’re delicious!! Er..I mean…no they’re alright…save your palette for something tastier. I’ll take this one. 


Humom: Uh no, none of you will take this one. I’m throwing it away!


Mia: Sigh FINE…I’ll go look for something else before you can stop me!

Humom: No you will not. You will sit pretty and take some photos with your sister.

On our way home, Nymeria was totally passed out on the car.



Pfft. Amateur. I was ready for the next adventure!!! Where to mom??


What kind of adventures do you guys have planned for the weekend? Happy Friday everyone! Hope you have a great weekend too!

    It looks like you an Nymeria were playing pretty well together. Too bad your humom beat you to the fish head. Tippy says that would have really been fun to roll on. Tell your humom that I love Nymeria’s head tilt and ears up in the 3rd picture. Too cute. You look cute too. Don’t worry. No need to be jealous. Be patient. I’m sure Nymeria will become less annoying as she gets used to being in your home.

      It took about an hour before we warmed up and started chasing each other. I guess when we realized that we were the only dogs on the jetty we HAD to play with each other. BOL! I have a feeling there are going to be more forced sister bonding walks in the future. Sigh. My humom discovered if she made squeaky baby noises it makes Nymeria tilt her head! BOL!

    Oh Mia…it’s just a case of sorting out pack order. You need to be ahead of Ny and that is fine… but you need to remember that for much or her life before, SHE had it all her own way and therefore will think she’s in charge. I have no doubt that you’ll sort it out, cuz you’ve got a very patient and loving humom!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

    Mia, you and Nymeria look like you are getting this sister stuff worked out! There are still days when I have to remind the bouncy one that I’m her elder and she needs to mind me. 😉 Keep up the good work. ~nose nudges Belle Pup

    Sister bonding is apparently hard work for the uninitiated, Mia. I know you’ll show her all the fish heads, I mean ropes for this whole new bonding adventure. Happy weekend. We’re still recovering from the food coma with leftovers from Thanksgiving. Luckily pumpkin pie for breakfast is as tasty then as it was after dinner. Heh, heh.

    They certainly seemed to get along and have fun together during their walk!! Nothing says sisterhood like stinky fish heads (even if Mia didn’t share)!
