|It took a while for me to be okay with Lobo and Poppy playing. But they're both really great dogs who give clear signals and are surprisingly respectful of one another.
Poppy usually instigates the play, and Lobo is sometimes hesitant at first, but then he'll play. Poppy, I think, sometimes mistakes Lobo's growls for more-than-play, because he has rolled over, but the second Lobo does a full body turn, Poppy's up and at it again.
The size difference is frightening, but Lobo doesn't use his teeth (mouth, yes, but he has astounding bite inhibition) so it's mostly just scary to look at or think about. Neither of them are all that vocal, either.
