In the last month, Tony and I have been host (for about a week each dog) to a golden retriever (Kirby), a 100 lb labrador (Jaffy) and this week it's my friend Matel's sharpay-pug-rat terrier (Edith). Everyone is going on trips but us. It's always funny to see how Vladimir (Tony's boxer-lab above) reacts to different dogs being around for extended periods of time. With Kirby, he wouldnt' stop trying to hump him. With Jaffy, Vlad was the object of hump and now with Edith they don't try to hump each other so much, but they wrestle for hours on end. When we go to bed, we make them sleep in the kennel together otherwise one will cry allll night and if they're not kenneled they wrestle allll night. To add to the challenges of double-dog-duty, I have enough trouble walking Vlad alone so I have to walk them separately which is kind of tedious (Tony's got a cold or something so he's little help). It's going to be a crazy week.
