When Finn goes near something Moonpie considers hers, she tends to lunge and steal whatever it is back. If she thinks she can get away with it (she can't) she'll snap at him at the same time.

95% of the time they get along fine, but that 5% of that time is killer. I've been handling it the same way I handle similar issues with cats, by putting Moonie out the door for a few minutes, but results are slow. She's gradually switched to waiting for Finn to drop whatever-it-is on his own, then stealing it back from him, which... I guess is progress? I need to put these dogs in training, stat. At least they're in the same weight class.

In other news, Finn has learned to fetch! Well, I mean, he's learned the chasing part of fetch.

Don't tell anybody, but I love the sound of the foghorn. I could never move inland at this point, because I'd feel weird on foggy days with no foghorn.
