I thought I'd share some pics of the two dogs I'm dog-sitting this weekend.

Jazzy is a mixed breed female around 15 pounds. I have no idea what she really is, except adorable! She looks like a wire-haired dachsund mixed with a shih-tzu or something. She definately has wirey hair, and she has the funniest little stubby tail, about 3 inches long that is constantly wagging. She is just so full of it. She has these miniature tennis balls that she carries around all the time.

Cody is an older male Golden Retriever. I think he's around 8 or 9. He's just a big oaf. Sweet and kind of aloof. He really wants to jump all over me and hump me, but I've been turning my back to him, so he's been learning that if he tries that on me, I ignore him. He's not mean, just overbearing, and never taught any manners.

It's interesting. These guys are so cute, but their owners think of them as "just dogs". I can really tell. They feed them crappy Purina kibbles and Ol' Roy treats. Their food dishes were kind of dirty and icky, so I cleaned them out before feeding them. They don't have any dog beds or crates. They have a few toys, but not a lot. They at least have collars with ID tags though. That I'm thankful for.

Anyway, I love dogsitting for people, so I thought I'd post some pics of them.

Awww what sweeties they are.:wub: I just don't understand people that have pets and just think of them that way. I just watched my friends cats while she and her fiance went up north for a wedding and these boys are spoiled. I work with her and her fiance had to meet me first before watching their boys when they went to Singapore the beginning of last year. Now i have become the official nanny for the boys when their parents go on vacation. Thank you for sharing the pics.

They're very cute. I feel so sad for my neighbor's dog. I don't understand why they have a dog. They never allow him in the house. They never play with him. He doesn't have any toys and when it's freezing in the winter, they still make him stay outside. He's a sweet boy. The neighbor on the other side and I have both taken him to the vets when he had a bad ear infection because his owners wouldn't. I don't understand people like this. Someone else would love their dog.

What lucky pups to get to stay with you for the weekend Becky!!

They both look so sweet & adorable!

Thanks for sharing them with us!
I'm actually staying with them! I'm staying over at their house so they are comfortable in their own surroundings. Besides, I doubt Micky would appreciate the company. He's not exactly a social butterfly... Although he did give me a good long sniffing when I came home today.

They are very cute. :wub::wub: I do think that we on SM tend to spoil our guys and girls much more than most average pet owner. They may still love them just as much but as everyone raises their children different, so be it with pets. Also some people don't have the financial means to give their pets premium food and buy lots of toys. It doesn't mean they love them less but they do what they can. Now if the dogs seem neglected or abused that's a totally different story, but these guys look great and have each other to keep them busy. JMO

You're so right. I know I shouldn't judge. It's just hard when I see how spoiled our dogs are. But then, today when their owners came back, they were SOOOO excited and happy to see them. So I know they are loved. :wub:
