Right Pixels, it’s time to meet The Dog
Really Pixels, don’t pull tongues, it’s not lady like. Just come on out and meet her.
I said NO !!!
Oh Pixels, it’s just Litchi – she’s a sweetie.
But I’m feeling a bit shy
Go on, do it for Mommy
Alright then, where is she?
OK, I’m coming out now
So, that’s a DOG
Can I give you a kiss, then?
Ah, my Litchi Love, you are such a good girl!
Alright, that was fun but can I please go back to sleep now?
Excuse the blurs but phone cameras are not great at movement shots. As for the rest, I must say I’m quite pleased with my phone!

Oh, lovely.I love they way they meet without force.:)
Only way to do it with a cat (no forcing them to do anything 🙂 )
There is a cat on our way when we go for our walks early in the mornings. He still tries to be friends with Trompie but… still afraid to really trust Trompie. He lets me stroke him but then he wants to go nearer to Trompie, Trompie does not really like the idea.
Yes, cats and dogs, does take quite a bit for them to get used to each other.
Hey Lady Litchi, Jet here.
What a cutie patootie Pixel is! You did our species proud meeting her so calmly… I predict family harmony for sure.
BTW, thanks to you and Mom for all your kind words of support during Mom’s time you know where. We’re all so grateful to be together, we’re watching her like a hawk!
Glad you’re there to watch over her Jetty. Sending more loves and kisses her way than she can possibly imagine. Just sent her an email, so, if you could read it out to her, that would be fantastic. Hang in there Jetty – you are such a great caregiver.
We’ve delivered them, Lady Litchi and boy is she smiling… I think she may even feed us breakfast 15 min. early! She just sent your Mom a response.
I do love caring for her, I must say…
Great. I’ll get back to her as soon as hubby gets back (he’s the one with all the knowledge in his head). You’re a good boy Jetty
What a truly lovely sequence! Heartwarming.
Glad you enjoyed
pixels is the cutest and how adorable this meeting of friends…i enjoyed your moment with them. 🙂
Glad you enjoyed. It really was a great moment 🙂
So adorable! Great pics! I love the tongue shot. 🙂
The tongue shot was my favourite as well. Thanks 🙂
I’m not sure either one of my dogs would allow such a thing. Good for Litchi!!
I’m so proud of her for doing so. She used to be terrified of cats and behave awfully around them. She has come such a long way.
Reblogged this on The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap and commented:
Wonderful photos that certainly answer What’s a Dog. Love this one.
Thank you so much for the reblog. Really appreciate it.
Wonderful! I’ll be thinking of this all day. ❤ Paulette
Glad you enjoyed 🙂
I’m going to read this to my kids when they get home from school!
Hope they enjoy 🙂
Awww.. so, so cute. The last photo of Pixel looks like a painting. Very beautiful. Litchi is such a sweet lady and she looks so much like my dog 🙂
How great, that Litchi looks like your dog. Your dog must be extremely beautiful 🙂
I agree with you about the last photo. Not sure how I managed that but it was pretty cool
Adorable. Very Adorable
Thanks 🙂 Glad you enjoyed
What a sweet, sweet tale!
Glad you enjoyed
aw, thanks 🙂
So cute! When my two kitties were about that small a friend of mine brought a dog over for a visit – just a little dog even – Belle disappeared instantly, and Sara thought about running away and thought about coming to what this whole “dog” thing was all about – couldn’t really make up her mind so she just sat nearby, and observed, ready to flee if needed. That was kind of cute too.
Definitely cute. Sara sounds like a brave little kitty
She can be – usually the first of the two to try something new, and then her sister will steal the idea and completely own it forcing Sara to find new ways to *ahem* get into trouble *ahem* be entertained.
😀 Sounds like you have a lot of mayhem going on in your place, especially if Sara is constantly having to find new ways 🙂
LOTS! And we consider Sara the good one. Sure, she may find new ways to get into trouble, but she never goes back and does any of the old ways once she has relinquished them to Belle. Belle, on the otherhand, does them all… when she is bored, when she wants attention, when she doesn’t want attention, when she just wants to play, when she thinks I’ve slept enough… She makes up for it though, check out my “I sat down to write” post from yesterday…
So beautiful. You’ve captured the sequence so well.
Why thank you. I’m amazed they let me but delighted they did.
THE MOST ADORABLE thing I’ve seen in so long. My dogs have all been so patient and sweet when they’re introduced to cats and kitties. The understanding in your dog’s eyes are too much!
Really glad to hear how well your dogs have done when meeting new cats. I’m particularly proud of Litchi as she had such a hard start to life and was terrified of cats – having awfully around them. I cannot believe how well she is doing now.
It just proves once again how much better animals are than people. If only people could learn to be like your dog!
Too true. We have a lot to learn from them!
This is so cute!
Thank you 🙂 I had cute subjects to work with 😀
This is so gorgeous! I love it!!
So THIS is a dog 🙂
It really was a very cute little introduction. Was very pleased that Litchi behaved herself. She rather likes the cats but preferably not whilst she’s sleeping
