A Second Dog

Myshelle wants a second dog. Or, more accurately, Myshelle says that Zahava wants a second dog. Somebody to play with and keep her occupied during the day while we're at work.

We had the pleasure of puppysitting for my friend Nicole for the last two weeks while she was off getting married and honeymooning in Fiji.

Audrey is one of the sweetest pups I know. When I walk in the front door she jumps up, puts her paws on my shoulders and licks my ears. It's absolutely adorable. She's completely fascinated by our cat Sophie, chasing her all over the house. She's an excellent tug-of-war and wrestling partner for Zahava. Her best tricks are "roll over", which she does with enthusiasm, and "whisper", which is a lot like "speak!" only quieter and cuter. Nicole can get her to spin circles while standing/jumping, but I couldn't get her to do it. At night she jumps up on the bed and curls up in a ball between my feet.

We (reluctantly) returned her to her rightful owners last night, but only after they promised to take really good care of her. I hope Nicole and her husband Nick go out of town again soon.

This is what Hava and Audrey did all day:
