I'm back online! I've got some catching up to do with my favourite dog blogs - I'll hop around when I have some free time this week. I hope you've all been doing well!
We're starting a new dog adventure this week. I've often wondered what life would be like with two dogs. I've heard that two dogs is half the work, but my husband is not so convinced. This week, we'll find out who's right, because we're dog-sitting for our lovely friends who were kind enough to take Oscar on last week when we were on vacation. They've left us with their adorable cockapoo, Mia.
Oscar is usually in an e-pen during the day, but Mia usually wanders the house. We figured we shouldn't keep Oscar in his e-pen while Mia got to run around, so we did some reorganizing. We bought an extra baby gate to close off the kitchen, and closed all the doors to the rooms in the house, so they've got the run of the living room, dining area and hallway during the day. We did another (major) round of puppy-proofing, since we don't know how Oscar will be when he's out during the day.
I figure they'll keep each other busy enough. This should be interesting - it's our first dog-sitting adventure. The pups have pretty different temperaments, and different habits, so we'll have some learning to do. Right now we've left them upstairs to see how they do before we leave them for the day tomorrow, and all I hear is them running around. They'll probably tire themselves out soon. Wish us luck! I'll let you all know how it goes!
