This is Duncan (first seen here). He met Chaucer the other day for the first time, at a three-dog play date at W.'s. Tiny, fragile Dachshund puppy + bumbling, clumsy 145lb Mastiff = Duncan saying, "Uh, I'll just watch from here, thanks."

In fact, they hit it off quite well (full-contact butt sniffing and lip kisses). Duncan is actually cowering in fear of me in these pics. He's a super shy little guy around humans he doesn't know. Good instincts, Dunc, because I'd be lying if I said I didn't have designs on you. I want to stuff you under my shirt and steal you like a dirty magazine from 7-Eleven.
