My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

Gone to the dogs.........

...puppy sitting is NOT for the faint of heart

We are puppy sitting for the weekend. A bouncy, bouncy, very vocal 7m.o. husky pup named Tika. She is hilarious and a runner (think the dog in that Chevy Chase movie Funny Farm) so the weekend should prove to be interesting. My dogs, who are 11 and 9, think she is the spawn of satan though. All Taylor does is slink around and growl at the poor little thing while she bounces all around making rooo-rooo noises and grovels -- begging T. to play with her. Buddy is only interested in her food....

We are also doggie sitting Tika's big brother Duke who I am convinced is part bull dozer. I am not sure how we are going to exercise him as his usual daily romp consists of chasing our neighbor around the 'hood on his four wheeler. (I think Duke thinks it is his mother -- a loud and speedy mother, but mother nonetheless). Duke is actually a Chesapeake Bay Retriever (the size of a small pony) which is fun 'cuz occasionally he brings you stuff -- like small children and basketballs.

So we have doubled our dogage for a few days -- man, I hope I remain alpha!
