We are dog sitting for a friend who had knee surgery this week. We have her 3 1/2 year old, 40 lb. small Belgium shepherd mix, Diablo, and her 4 year old, 65 lb. brown shepherd/lab mix, Chienne.
Diablo is hyper to say the least. But he is happy. He thinks he is living at the dog park with all the dogs to play with here.
Chienne is shy, sensitive and particularly doesn't like men - except for David. My husband is like the Dog Whisperer - all dogs like him. It took a couple days, but now she is attached to his hip, sleeps curled up next to him in bed, and is rarely not on the couch right next to him. It is cute.
Combine those with our four and we have a small zoo.
