So it's my birthday this weekend, and the family is coming over for a get together. Thing is, my sister wants to bring her corgi, Clever, over for a visit with his "cousin" Beau. Clever is a sweet dog, and about the same size as Beau, but I have serious reservations about the wisdom of this. Beau is quite timid, if not outright scared, around other dogs, and I really don't know how he'll react to having his home turf "invaded." We could put Clever in the backyard, but then I figure Beau would just bark all evening. Am I over reacting? Sure would be nice for me and my sis to be able to visit one another with our dogs in tow, without provoking a dog fight. Any suggestions from you experienced poodle parents welcomed, up to and including "run for the hills!"
