Playing and rough-housing has made Hachi so much more content. He will snooze quietly during downtime in the house rather than being hyped. And I think that Shyla has been wishing for the chance to do this for years. When she first joined our pack, she tried to get R to play with her like this but he didn't want to. She seems overjoyed that Hachi will play with her.
They make the fiercest faces when they play but it's all in fun.
After some funny faces and wrestling, they go back to chasing each other.
And we humans smile and smile. We feel so fortunate that our pups love to play together, and that we now have the space to let them play every day.
