My sister in-law has a new baby. She is a Chorkie (part Chihuahua and part Yorkie). Her name is Nike.
Aunt J went on a little trip and left her with my mother in-law….we found out and asked if we could puppy sit for 24 hours.
My kids have been begging for a puppy, so I told them they could be in-charge. Hoping they would realize how much work a new “baby” was.
They did the feeding, potty breaks, and mess clean up all themselves.
Beauty is dying for one of these “purse puppies” I was convinced they were too small and timid for my liking.
Nike might have changed my mind. She was so fun, the kids were gentle, and my daughter was in heaven.
Beauty wrapped her in blankets, let the puppy chase her, walked her, took her out on the grass for potty breaks, and even cleaned up her “mistakes” inside.
She and Nike bonded, and when Beauty went to bed the puppy whimpered for her while curled up on my lap!
Now I am no fool, I realize this was only 24 hours and the novelty factor was there…but it did make me think it might be fun when we are ready for another pet.
Even my hubby admitted it might be nice to downsize in the dog department when the time comes, after puppy sitting this little one (all 3 pounds of her).
He got such a kick out of watching our daughter squeal with delight and “mother hen” this little creature .
The kids cried when it was time to call my mother in law to come get her.
Beauty carried her out to the car and handed her to C who put her in the front seat.
I promised them we can puppy sit again sometime soon!
