When she brought Spence home for the evening a few days ago, raranax promptly dubbed him Shpanky.
The existing dogs do not get on with him so well. He's much improved: he used to jump up on people, barge through doors, nip, leap on furniture, and a host of other obnoxious little behaviors. Now, he merely does up-skirt nosing, tries to hump the poodle (my uncle says that the poodle only lets Deacon hump him because Deacon licks his dick first, and there is some merit to this observation), nips occasionally, stands on his hind legs but doesn't put his paws on people, sometimes puts his feet up on things, and sometimes takes a while to sit before going through a door.

The poodle puts up with a lot.
