Mom and Dad’s dog, Toby, (the tiny Chihuahua in the first photo) came to our house this morning for an extended five-day stay.
He’s their newly-adopted boy – he’s only been with them since August, and this is the first time they’ve taken a trip. It’s also the first time our newly August-adopted girl, Dakota, has had company at her house. Whew. So many new things!
Toby looked a little nervous riding in the car with me — but my husband would say that’s because of my driving – HA!
But Toby settled right in with our two, Dakota and Tanner. In spite of his being size-challenged (compared to our bubbies), he holds his own. And, much to my dismay, he and Dakota (who’s the younger of our tw at 5) really want to romp around the house together. I had to step in and tell them that wasn’t going to happen, and they seem ok with that. Besides the obvious house-protecting instinct, it doesn’t seem like fair play when she outweighs him by 50 pounds!
Since I’m still taking it easy, it will be good to be here with them all day to keep an eye on them in case I need to play traffic cop, but I think they are quite content…don’t you?
Here’s a challenge – someone had “cat day” last week on our garden blogs — why don’t we have “doggie day” and everyone can post their pooch pics and link back to me. I love looking at your dogs, (and cats) and therefore assume everyone loves to look at my dogs!
