Puppy Sitting

April 26th, 2013 by Mommy


We were able to help out our friend and do some dog sitting. This also helped us with our dog therapy for Julia. We watched George (black 5 lbs. poodle) and Belle (tan 10 lbs. poodle) for a week. The girls were excited, but Julia was a bit unsure when the dogs arrived. It took the dogs a couple of days to get used to us and our house, but we didn’t have any trouble with them. George is younger and more active so the girls gravitated to playing with him more. Belle preferred to lay on the couch and get love. By the end of the week Julia wanted to pick up George and carry him around the house. She also wanted to hold his leash when he went for walks. It was a great experiment for the girls.

Puppy Therapy

February 27th, 2013 by Mommy


Our little Julia is afraid of dogs. But, she has been asking for a puppy anyway. In an effort to get her more used to the idea, Mama took her to visit a pet store. We looked at all the young dogs a couple of times, and she was willing to touch a few in the special petting area. This was her favorite dog in that we saw during this visit. Somehow, it seems to fit her personality. If you ask her what kind of dog she wants, she will tell you a little one.

As another attempt to get her ready for a dog, we will be doing some puppy sitting for two small dogs in our house. It will be interesting for all of us. Shhhh, don’t tell the girls though, they don’t know yet.
