Dixie the campdog...

She likes to go camping even more than I do.

Dixie taking a break while camping at Perry Lake.     Buddy was more freaked out when Dixie got here than she was. I have a 1-minute 39-second video clip of their first meeting and it's ugly. I'd put Buddy on a chain in the back yard and made him stay out there while Dixie made the rounds inside. She went to every room and poked her head inside the doorway, checking out this strange, new place she'd been so abruptly tossed into. When I finally opened the back door and let her out, Buddy went ballistic. It was only the second time in his life the fur along the back of his neck has raised up. He was livid! It's a telling clip, a portent of things to come. Dixie ignores him at first. It's obvious she's aware he's there but she avoids looking at him while she walks around the back yard for the first time and checks things out.

The Face-Off or: Showdown at the O.K. Corral or: Shootout at High Noon.
Buddy and Dixie squaring off - 1. Buddy and Dixie squaring off - 2. Buddy and Dixie squaring off - 3.
    I wondered several times that first day if maybe I'd made a mistake, if maybe bringing Dixie into the house would cause more trouble than it was worth. Dixie's a big girl. If it came right down to an actual fight, she'd cream Buddy without breaking a sweat. The two of them had to get along. There wasn't any middle ground. I had to know that I could leave them alone together and not have to worry about Dixie eating him for lunch.
