Fuzzy and I have started a Day Care. Well, really I have. Not by choice! But by necessity! We had to figure out what to do with these little cousins that are spending ten days and ten nights with us!
What a job!
These are HOUSE DOGS!!!!
(This is Bella)
I guess from their size you can see why.
(This is Zooker)
Fuzzy told Mom, “NO WAY! I’ll back up Boomer, if he gets in trouble, but other than that I just sit in my dog house or go on walks with all of you and watch what happens.”
But I love Mom, so I said I would.
(Zooker had to have a belly band…the boy dog thing -you understand)
It hasn’t been so bad—Zooker sleeps with me, when I’m in the house, and when they are outside Zookie goes wherever I go.
So does Bells, BUT
Bella….now Bella is a whole other story…Bella has to be on a leash because…BECAUSE SHE RUNS OFF!
Boy can she run fast!!!
Took Mom 30 minutes to catch her one day….Bella would run a short ways, stop, wait for Mom to get there, run off really fast…Mom was NOT a happy camper when Bella finally LET Mom catch her.
So now Bella lives on a long rope when she is outside.
We go for lots and lots of walks, because Bella is so HIGH ENERGY…makes even me tired. Bella seems to always be in motion.
When she crashes she likes to crash on Mom.
When Zooker crashes he likes to lay on Dad if he can’t lay on me.
Sam the cat, and
Monkey the cat, all think I’m messed up. But, I love Mom and Dad and so I head up the Day Care for teeny bitty little house dogs! (While Fuzzy guards the place)
Mom is outside all the time now. The rule is—if Mom is outside we ALL have to be outside, even MONKEY…tee hee. (Who never wants to be outside.)
“Fresh air is good for you,” Mom says as she brings Monkey out the door with her.
Mom has also moved Fuzz and me outside at night.
Because of Freddy the Fox!
Freddy is getting way to close to the hen house. Yes, the hens are locked up at night, and they have a top on their pen, but Foxes are very clever.
Now Fuzzy and I have another job….keep the fox out of the yard!
We take this very seriously! It’s a job Fuzzy says he likes and what he was born for…he says I can be a babysitter if I want, but HE is a GUARD Dog and is going to stay that way.
Mom says…4.5 more days to go….Bella and Zookie say: “But we really like it HERE!”
I tell them they will be really happy to see their Dad again and do all the stuff they get to do with their Dad.
Zookie looks at me with tender love in his eyes and then sighs a great deal and tells me he WILL be glad when Dad gets home.
Bella? Well, Bella says she will enjoy having Dad back, but being here has
BEEN A BLAST!!!
I guess I run and pretty good Day Care.
