For the next week, we have 3 four legged house guests. My mom and dad had to go out of town, so we are dog sitting their three dogs Misty, Shania, and Jackson. We have 2 dogs already, but they are outside and are chained up. Our house is on 11 acres and Misty and Shania are used to a fenced in yard, so we have to walk them on a leash (Jackson will only go where he is told.) I was worried the dogs wouldn't adjust very well to my dad being gone (they follow him everywhere), but they are being good and spoiled by the children and coping just fine.
The children have been doing a great job taking care of the dogs. Chelsea has even given up her bed to sleep in the living room with them. The boys help fill their water dishes and walking them and Lily even gives their bones when they come inside (she did try to give Shania 5 bones one time but I caught her.) Even though they like being around the kids, I am sure the dogs will be very happy to see Papa next week.
