Since Monday, I have been house sitting. I'll be away for about a month. And won't have internet. So yet again, I must bid you adieu. But I will be home every once in a while and I plan on writing blog posts to queue up in the mean time. That's the grand plan anyway :)
I am looking after little Ted. This is him a few months ago, last time I looked after him.
Now a few months on, he is six months old. In that last picture, he was up to my knees. Now he is up to my hip. This is a particularly cute picture of him that I took today. And he is still growing!!
He is still very much a puppy and trips over his feet when he chases the ball. And slobbers ALL over me. Every time I go outside to see him, I have to wash- not just my hands- but all the way up my arms too! Being a puppy, he gets over excited and jumps up on me. Which is a nightmare!! He's nearly bowled me over a couple of times. Taking him for walks is quite a mission. But luckily there is a small park nearby and I can let him off the lead. Even though he's still learning, he is a real people pleaser and always comes back when I call him. I think he's such a goodnatured doofus. And only I get to call him a 'doofus', if anyone else called him that I'd be offended! From what I've seen of these big dogs at work, all of them seem to have that 'friendly giant' in their personality. I can see why people are taken with those breeds. I just wish they didn't slobber so much!
I have been getting TONS of house sitting offers. On the one hand, it's great because it's money and people have super nice houses that I get to live in and I get to look after some of the sweetest sweeties. But on the other hand... I miss my house and my Roomies!!
