Are the words “dog” and “magnet” written over our front door or on our foreheads??? Maybe. Or just: 2 big animal suckers live here? We have had a chihuahua and a lab for many years, but then few years ago we inherited a Jack Russell from friends, and now it appears that our son’s dog is staying with us for awhile. Daisy the Bluetick/Walker hound mix, 8 months old. She is a sweetheart, big and gormless :*) I guess our 20 acres is perfect for a dog like a hound. She and Bear the Lab have a great time wandering and checking out the sights and smells. They look like two best friends going out the back door and heading into the woods in the snow. And then two funny faces wait for us at the back door. But… it also makes for a pretty busy household! Everyone has their place and a different relationship with their people: Tesser the Chihuahua makes sure to sleep with us at night; Josie the Jack Russell sleeps in the dog bed in the bathroom; Daisy sleeps in her crate, and Bear spends her evenings outside the bathroom door, and daytimes she spends it on her blanket in front of the south-facing french doors. I guess maybe everyone likes that location pretty well, come to think of it!
