Our old ladies, Thelma and Louise, keep to themselves – not playing with the puppies or getting up to mischief. They chill on “their” couch inside the house, and outside they have their own igloo.
Our big dogs – Riddick and Penny, Guide-Dog-in-training and weekend visitor Patrick, and Guide Dog puppy Nimble, hang out together. Playing, sleeping, eating, and misbehaving.
Riddick is still my baby, following me from room to room. <3 He is almost completely blind, so we don’t move furniture around too much if we can help it, and we put bells inside his favourite toy so he can hear it when we throw it for him. He is also diabetic now, so I watch him like a hawk for weight loss or gain, and any odd behaviour, and he gets an insulin shot twice a day.
Penny is a daddy’s girl, happiest when she can be as close to her daddy Glugster as she can get- even in the heat. She has to win everything. We should have named her “Monica”! 😛
Nimble is 7 months old and very clever! She also follows me around, and she loves to play with the other dogs!
Patrick hasn’t spent weekends with us for several weeks, but we’re back into that routine until he goes “on class” with his new owner early next year. Then he’ll be a working Guide Dog and we won’t see him much after that!
