It's been two weeks now and already Max has made his place in our home and our hearts. He is such a good puppy. Almost completely house trained already, and so smart. He learned to sit, shake hands, and roll over already!
My only concern is his older doggy brother Taz! Our Taz is a 14 year old Llasa Apso, who is healthy and has the patience of a saint. But, he is not a fan of rough puppy play and seems quite sad now. Max is already bigger than him, so he sits on the couch and won't even get down to eat unless we carry him. He also has started having accidents in the house, right in front of me!!!
I really hope he gets used to all of this... Taz was 7 when my daughter was born and 9 when my son was born. He is so sweet, he has never once lost his patience with either of them, even during the toddler years. Both of my children are very kind to animals as a result of having him and learning early on.
Our little Max is already bigger than Taz, and quite capable of accidentally hurting him when playing too rough... Suggtions on teaching Max to be gentle with Taz? Any hope it can even happen or should we just keep them in separate parts of the house ?
