We have guests!

Sorry for the lack of blogs, but I have been a busy hostess for my guests. My father has a friend over learning to be a divemaster, and he brought his son, Ohren. As you can see, Ohren is a subordinate dog breed (German Shepherd), but Mommy taught me that we have to treat every doggy the same.

It's been a little tough with Ohren here . . .my daily routine of eating-sleeping-eating-playing with Daddy-eating-sleeping has been severely disrupted. First of all, Ohren eats ALOT and drinks more water in one sitting than I do the entire day! Consequently, I have had to share my food and water with him at times (I usually don't mind since that is what hosts do, but I am afraid he will eat me out of house and home!). Secondly, he loves to play with my stuffed toys, which I don't mind sharing. But he has a big snout with big teeth -- my toys are torn apart in one play session! That is just rude to destroy someone else's property like that . . . And then there is this frisbee-thing. Mommy has tried to get me to play frisbee with Ohren, but I don't see how that is much fun at all; who wants to catch a plastic disc in midair? Mommy says I am just being a sourpuss, but I don't care . . .



These are our latest houseguests: Ohren is on the left and the Josh-human is in the center. Yours truly is on the right (yup, I am the good-looking one in the picture)

hi frances!
oh you are being a wonderful hostess. emmitt asked that i tell you just to be a little careful with a shepherd that big. they are so big that they may hurt you when they absolutely do not mean to, especially when you are between their toy or food. emmitt lost the sight in his right eye from an incident exactly like that with his cousin german shepherd who loved him very much. it was an accident, but a lesson learned.

Man Ohren is huge!! I bet he does eat and drink alot, you better make sure you eat your food as soon as your mom puts it down for you!

Oh no.. poor Emmitt! Also when you play.. he could step on you and hurt your back. (My mom is always worried that Gus might do that to her toy-poodle).
It sounds like you have been a good hostess though.. yes playing with a frisbee is boring.. but squeaky balls are more fun! :)

You are being a wonderful gracious hostess, letting that big dog eat you out of house and home. As for the frisbee, well, I wouldn't want to chase that either, I think. I would much rather sit in mom's lap, like I am doing now. German Shepherds have to chase frisbees cuz they can't fit into laps like we can, and they are love deprived because of it.

What a nice hostess you are! We would have been a bit scared of such a big doggie!
