Little TJ is staying with us this week while his family attends a wedding in Kelowna. TJ came for a trial run on Friday and within minutes was just one of the pack.
He loves being outside in my big yard, and going for walks in the pasture, and his only frustration is that Charley keeps trying to get him to PLAY – and Charley is one of those BIG SCARY DOGS when you are just a wee little maltipoo. But TJ’s no dummy – he picked up that Sadie is the nurturer and caregiver of all visiting dogs here, and just stuck like glue to Sadie’s side (well, almost right under her belly!) so BIG SCARY DOG couldn’t pounce on him.
He has explored every inch of the yard, the house, and the perimeter of the fence, and has now settled on my lap. That’s always his favourite place because he knows when I visit him at his house, invariably I’m having tea or lunch with his mom, Lou, and I will sneak him little treats.
The best thing about looking after other people’s dogs is you can spoil them rotten and then send them home…….Heheheheheh!
Welcome, TJ. I hope you enjoy your visit here at Chez Critters.
