|(This is kind of a vague question; I apologize.)
Monty and our puppy, Ida, (a Basenji mix who I'd estimate weighs about 25 pounds) like to play. They chase each other around the apartment, tussle, play tug-o-war, &c.
They don't get to hang out together unsupervised because although they're on pretty good terms in general, I wouldn't want things to get out of hand and see one or both of them hurt. Better to be safe than sorry and all that.
I guess what I'm asking is, what are your protocols for letting your iggies play with larger dogs? Ida's definitely not a large large dog, and I'd be very surprised if she ended up more than thirty or thirty-five pounds. Still, that's quite a bit bigger than Monty and Livy. They seem to enjoy tiring each other out, though, and I appreciate that.
(Oh, and when they play, Monty makes the most awful noise. It's not a growl, it's not a shriek--it's this keening, whining, ninja-like noise that just shatters my eardrums. Does anypup else do that, and is there a way to discourage it?)
