Well, Other Half returned home with his new patrol dog yesterday. Since I was already at work, I met him in The Big City so I could meet Aja before I came home.

Rule #1 When You Live With A Police Dog - Make sure the dog knows YOU!

It is probably not a good idea to walk into a dark bedroom in the middle of the night with a dog that bites if that dog does not know you. Even if the dog is in a kennel, it's a bad way to meet said dog.

So I met them and played with her before he took her on home. She is an AWESOME dog. Very personable. Very friendly. Very high drive. Girlfriend will stand on her head for tennis ball.  So satisfied that the dog knew me, I went back to work, and he went on home.

Here is his report on his arrival at home:

Briar wanted to kill her. No surprise there. Aja is a Predator Deluxe.

Ranger and Cowboy think she is the sexiest thing they've ever seen.

 In fact, Ranger is her new best friend. He is the only dog she has been loose with thus far. They met in the yard. She ran straight at him with her hackles up. He froze. She landed in front of him with a play bow and he dropped into a bow himself, and round and round the yard they went. From that moment they were friends.

Dillon is still in shock. He was aggressive at first but now he's re-thinking his initial impression. We still won't put them together.


Oli likes her just fine. They have no reason to be friends, but at least they're not trying to eat each other. Oli is not jealous in the least bit. She is happy to be a house pet.


Since even on a good day, Trace is a troll. We haven't let him meet her yet.

Ice doesn't care one way or the other. She lives in her own little world and just wants the other dogs to stay out of her way.

  "or ELSE!"

But the most amusing reaction came from Lily . . .

. . . Other Half reported that Lily took one look at this new member of the family, silently turned her back on them and walked away.  She refused to even be curious.

"You brought home ANOTHER dog?!! Really?!! ANOTHER dog! Are you freakin' kiddin' me? Alright Mister. You need to understand that I have seniority around here. Me!!! This better not affect my pay or benefits not one bit, Mister!"

Aja sounds like a wonderful addition to the pack! If you're going to be blogging about her - which will be often, I hope - please tell us how to pronounce her name. Does it rhyme with hi-ya, playa, rajah, badger, none of the above ...?

She is beautiful (although tell Ice she is still my favorite!)....Is she a full GSD or is she a Malinois like Oli?

Welcome pretty girl! I know she won't be allowed to sleep on your bed since that is Dillon's domain (unless that has changed ?). LOL at Lily's reaction! It would be fun to visit and play with your dogs. (Don't worry, I live too far away to get there.)

Aja sleeps in a kennel beside the bed at night. Yes, Dillon and Lily sleep in the bed. Since she clearly doesn't know much about sleeping on a bed, she's happy enough in a kennel. And besides, Lily would STROKE if she was kicked off the bed in favor of THAT dog.

Janie, I'm glad Ice is your favorite. She is such a dear sweet old girl. Twice she has been in the hallway behind a baby gate when Aja has run at the house cat sitting on a trunk beside the baby gate. Each time as Aja approached the gate (and the cat) Ice roared sprang out of the dark like a moray eel and scared the beejeebers out of Aja. EVERYONE has a healthy respect for that crazy old girl. (except Trace the Troll)
