As many of you may remember, my friend's two yorkies came to stay while she went on an overseas trip with her husband. We typically care for these two escape artists each summer for a week or ten days. This time, they arrived on Thursday, August 16 and I thought my friend told me that she would pick them up on August 28. Well......obviously, this being the 1st of September and no word from my friend, the dogs are still here! I tried texting her but did not receive an answer. They have three days left of food, so I was hoping to hear when they would return so I would know whether or not to buy more dog food for them. They do not eat the same kind that my dogs eat. Meanwhile, they have done pretty good if you don't count the fact that they poop and pee in my house when I have not been paying attention and they got into our camping supplies and ripped open a few packages of spiced cider, a bag of marshmallows, and a pack of microwave popcorn! They also managed to escape one time when my husband didn't pay attention to the fact that I was standing outside with them to go potty and he opened the back gate. Out they ran! Oh, and they do NOT come back when they are called! I ran after them and managed to catch the male when he stopped to mark his place and I caught the female by a pure miracle from God, who loves me. Whew. Omari loves to play with the little girl, as they are both two years old. They race around the backyard so fast, it is hard to follow them! Goyang-i, our cat, has adjusted to them being here and they finally stopped barking and chasing him. Dear Goyang-i has been spending more time outside, though.
