It has been almost 3 months since my last posting. The two new schips have settled in nicely. Everything is a new experience for them, almost like having puppies around only on a larger scale. I have taken them to the bay on a couple of occasions and Trip seems to like to play in the water. Sammi is not so sure. Of course, they also did not stop quite soon enough when running through the yard and they both went off the end of the walkway into the large pond. No harm done, but it is rather funny watching a schipperke try and walk on water lilies.
I have had one more pet sitting job since August which lasted for 5 days. The dogs were great, especially the elder Rhodisian Ridgeback. I was filling in for the regular house/pet sitter who was out of town on vacation. Great place, back in the pine trees.
