A couple of weeks ago our friends went out of town and their dog, Buster, came to stay with us for the weekend.
Buster and Pearl know each other well and often go on walks together or have “play dates.” We were a little worried about how they would do in the house for two days together, but they were so well behaved and it was very little extra work to have a second dog in the house (it totally convinced my husband that, when the time comes that we can afford it, we can handle having a second dog- yay!). Buster is very easygoing and sweet. I was sick with strep throat while he was with us and he curled up at my feet on the couch and kept me company all weekend. He’s just a happy go lucky little guy- his tail is usually wagging and he always looks like he is looking up with you with a happy doggy grin.
Pearl and Buster were really good about sharing toys and not playing too rough together in the house. I couldn’t get a good picture of them playing tug since they were moving so much, but they were so adorable I am sharing some blurry photos anyway (don’t mind all the mess in the background. Since I was sick this week I picked up even less than usual- thank goodness my mother doesn’t read this blog, she would be horrified).
They also loved playing in the yard. I wish we could have been out there more but it was SO HOT.
After a long session of playing together they would chill out on the couch or cuddle up with us to nap.
We had never had another dog over the house before and dog sitting Buster went so much better than we were expecting. It definitely convinced us that Pearl will be able to handle adding a second dog to our little family when the time is right.
