What we've been doing...



Petsitting! Molly belongs to our neighbors, the Kimberlins. They went to Italy for two weeks (lucky dogs) and Molly is a little too neurotic to spend two weeks in a kennel so we offered to take her in. Well, Jensen offered to take her in and we were kind of put on the spot...:-) In the past we've been the ones that have needed pet sitters but it has been more than a year now since we've had a dog in the house. Cosmo, I know you're up there saying "I don't know what that is, but it's not a dog." Actually, it's Jim that says that but if you were here I don't know if you'd be able to tolerate Molly either. Most of us around here have a love/hate relationship with her. For some it's a hate/hate relationship.







And for some, it's all love. Molly definitely has her quirks but Jensen has just been soooo happy to have her here that it makes it all worth it. That girl loves all critters no matter how irritating they may be. We really gotta get her a dog. Anyone have any suggestions of small, shed-free, non-yappy dogs out there?

And there has been one bonus...yesterday Molly killed a snake in our backyard. It was just a garden snake, but a snake nonetheless so at least she's good for one thing. We have her for 5 more days...I'll be starting the countdown.

I hear beagles are good dogs.... you should think about that... we would even be willing to give you Shiloh if you want... ;)

Go, Molly!! Take down that snake!!

I'm not a pet person, so my advice for what to get Jensen would be a Webkin or another stuffed animal. That's as close as we've gotten to a family pet here...

I might suggest a Cavapoo (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Poodle mix) My cavapoo has a great disposition. She doesn't meet a stranger. She is not yappy and vocal at all! She loves kids and loves to have a warm lap to snuggle into when it's time to wind down. She has 50% poodle in her to keep her from shedding and the other 50% cavalier gives her that sweet loving personality. When our 14 yr old beagle (sheds tons!) passed away I wanted a non-shedding furbaby as a companion to our great dane who was grieving the beagle. I researched the cavapoo cross and fell in love. Our cavapoo Chloe has just turned one and is a great addition to our family. The lady I got her from has a new litter two weeks old. Check out www.oldmcdoodlefarm.com for the available cavapoos.
