Fair enough. My sisters dog is 14. He is a lovely dog but acts like a grumpy old man around young male dogs. Ha!

the hardest part of pet sitting is keeping the food bowls separated,

in which they won’t get into each other’s food, and then who knows all hell might break loose.

Yeah food bowls are a big deal for dogs. I suppose one solution is to feed them at different times but from my experience dogs can get annoyed by food feeding order. Suppose it is the canine hierarchy thing going on

yeah. Well Wesley and Deoge are alike, in that they won’t eat the whole bowl at one sitting. I’ve had one you had to monitor,

but she still got into all of Deoge’s. I got smart and when she was outside with Phil,
I fed Deoge.

Yeah I have been lucky in that my dogs finish their bowl as soon as it is filled. A lot easier to monitor them. A grazing pack of dogs would definitely be harder to monitor

that was like this dog too.

Wesley doesn’t beg for people food, the way Deoge does.

but he is a real people person.

Is coming up for 6pm here. Scottish houses are built to be warm. But with the summer heat my place can be uncomfortably hot

Very few houses in Scotland have Ac

hmm, my house has windows and doors on north and south side,

so I don’t get direct sunlight, and I think that’s why my house plants do well too, partial sunlight.

Only turn the A/C on when I’m sweating in here.
