The top of the stairs is prime real estate when it comes to dogs. Whoever has this perch is king of the mountain. He or she can look down of the kingdom below. Loki used to guard this place fiercely from Jujube. But just the other day, I caught the two of them sharing this space together! We've come a long way from the day we first introduced Jujube into our home. From dog fights to the dog behaviorist, Jujube has finally fully integrated into our household. I'd say it took a good 9 months. It used to be the case that we'd have to carefully manage the two of them to ensure that they didn't fight. Nowadays, I don't think twice about them. They co-exist quite peacefully. They still aren't the best of friends, and perhaps they never will be, but they have accepted each other, play with each other, and have grown closer over time.
