These are, our sweet granddoggies that we have been watching this week. Front to back: Corena, Stu (laying down) and EmmyLou. Also in our care were six cats and one day there were seven...or maybe I should just say six and a half...but that's another story.
The dogs are very well trained, playful and are excellent watch dogs...just the size of their presence can be very intimidating, especially when Stu adds his growl to the mix, and EmmyLou her smile.
The first day we arrived to feed the crew, the doggies seemed very depressed...and, I guess they were missing their owners. As the days went by they made the adjustment and were responding to our presence with excitement and wagging tails...We were glad to see that.
The cats were always eager for a good rub down and quickly learned that we made excellent doormen...Isn't it amazing how cats can train you so quickly, to respond to their demands? "I need in, I need out, I need in, I need food right now!"
Well, tomorrow ends our watch and we have really enjoyed playing with Corena, Stu and EmmyLou...and making sure that Oliver, the cat, got his fair share of food. I just love Oliver...he's the old "senior citizen" around the house.
