Dog Sitting

We are dog sitting Big Girl's pup this week while she and her sweet family are on a well deserved vacation.  Susie came to spend time with us Saturday.  That was 5 days ago and the cats are still not over it.  Susie stays outside so she really can't bother the cats.  But those of us who live with cats know how their minds work.  Indi has stood guard at the back door and attacked at every opportunity. She is very brave behind a pane of glass. Our door will be worn out by the end of the week. 

Scruffy  is totally disgusted that we have even allowed a dog on the property.  She spends most of her day upstairs and ventures downstairs only to eat.  She did go outside the other day.  She went out the front door and decided she would go around back to lounge on the deck.  She forgot the dog was there.  It took her close to 10 minutes to cross the deck in extreme slow motion-stealth mode.   

Susie is very busy and excited about everything.  She has the sweetest personality and can be goofy.  Here she is giving me a hug and getting a scratch behind the ear.  It started raining here Sunday and hasn't let up.  So far I think we have gotten 6 inches and they are predicting 3 to 6 more before it ends.  Poor Susie has had a very wet week.  We have tried hard to keep her dry and have made her a camp with tarps on the back deck.  We keep finding her dry blankets to sleep on.  No matter how hard we try she still gets soaked.  We've been letting her spend lots of time in the garage just to get a break from the rain.  I know she will be glad when her family gets home.  

P.S.  Giveaway goodies were put in the mail today.
