My folks tend to get a little lonely without the pitter patter of doggie feet in the house since Max died in February, and so between my brother and I, we oblige them (my brother more than me sadly) and let them puppy sit. This week Peach and Simon are at Grandma and Grandpa's (yes, my parent's actually call *themselves* that now), and so I'm mid-week wondering, how does one pass the time? The last few trips up to my folks, I've had something going on that's occupied me, but this time, no such luck. Thus far, I've managed to oversleep completely without the 2 "cold nose we hate snooze get your butt up" backup systems, I totally zoned out while making my coffee (Simon hovers under me anytime I'm in the kitchen so I'm usually more aware) and wound up with 6 tablespoons of Tim's to 16oz of water (strong stuff lemme tell ya), and am sitting about at night, since there's nobody to go to the field and play with. While I'm counting down the days, my dad has created a wire run with 2 long (20 ft) leads that goes around the entire house and garage so they can be outside with him when he's doing yard work (the same man that built a room in their basement entirely for the doggies). I don't think they're going to want to come home!
