We are taking in a house guest today. A wee dog is staying with us for 10 days while his people (son and dil and grandson) take a vacation to Victoria , BC.
Baxter is a West Highland White Terrier. He is 3 years old and pretty well trained (for a terrier). He went to puppy preschool and kindergarten! He has the typical Westie skin issues and gets itchy if he eats anything with gluten. He gets along with his home cat pretty well. I don’t know what our cats will think of him. I have dog proofed the house and yard. The backyard gates are all secured and terrier proof. He is too short to jump the fence. It will be fun to have a terrier in the house again.
Son is compiling a “Baxter Dossier” to assist us in caring for him. They are very attentive dog parents and I am sure the instructions will be very detailed. I like the word “dossier”. It makes Baxter sound like a spy or a diplomat.
Imagine you will be someone’s house guest. What would the dossier say about your care and feeding?
