Palmer has this aggressive reaction to other dogs and though my gut tells me its a combination of past experiences and inadequate socialization that triggers this behavior, I like to attribute it to Palmer's need for some doggie friends. This morning, as I turned the last corner of our morning walk, we came face-to-face with a brown pitbull. Palmer pulled the leash tight in an effort to approach the pitbull but that was the last thing I wanted as the Palmerpie would surely lose if the interaction turned ugly. :( I panicked and crossed the street to avoid confrontation but Palmer was wimpering and whining the whole time. Is he lonely for a doggie playmate?
Uncle Brandon says 'Palmer, its ok! You'll get a doggie BFF soon enough.'

Johnny and I took Palmer for a full-service groom and haircut at Bathe R Doggie in Pasadena today. It was the very first haircut he's had since we adopted him and he looks so deliciously handsome and fresh now. His cute little paws are neatly groomed and he even smells like baby powder! Check him out:
