I want new digs.

We're dog-sitting this week. Truffle, a chocolate (sadly not real chocolate) labrador is holidaying with us while her humans are elsewhere. She has not had a wink of peace from Flora since she arrived. Well, we do put the puppy in her cage sometimes and Truffle retires to her bed but otherwise Flora is at her side, in a "Play with me, Truffle. Play with me, now, Truffle. Truffle, can we play now?" sort of way. I could see that the last straw this morning was when Flora decided to snuggle in with Truffle in Truffle's bed - she didn't need words to explain that she was not amused.

Truffle is probably thinking: "Damn kids." ;-)

Truffle will be glad to go back home, and poor Flora will be sad. But it's good for them to have to adjust to each other in the meantime! I wish we'd made sure Smokey spent more time with other dogs when he was young.

Aw, poor Truffle! The older dogs do put up with a lot from pups, don't they?

Beautiful pictures of the two of them sharing a bed though it looks as though Flora has managed to inveigle her way across most of it.

Poor Truffle. We have an old Rottweiller who has to put up with a young shepherd mix and a young terrier mix. Sometimes he reaches his limit.
