We are dog sitting for the youngest boy's dog this week. He got him a few weeks ago. The dog is a 2-year old Corgi mix. It is a very good dog. he loves to run free in the fenced-in back yard. In fact he doesn't want to come in.
We had lots of pets in the house growing up. Dogs, cats, fish, birds, turtles, guinea pigs. A box turtle spent the winter roaming the house and a chipmunk lived in a cage in the kitchen for 8 years. The wife, on the other hand, has never cared much for animals. The dog promptly shit on the carpet as soon as he came in, so he got off to a bad start. The dog loves her though. He follows her around and watched her do a load of laundry last night.
The squirrel that lives in the tree out front has him wound up already this morning. He really, really hates squirrels.
