Our weekend with a really big dog

We had a house guest this weekend. We dog sat for our neighbors/ landlords on Saturday night.

Their dog Thorpe is a mixed breed--giant mixed with scaredy cat I think. Thorpe is a BIG dog. He stands about 6 inches taller than Sharona and as you can imagine he makes 'lil 12 pound Winnie look like a speck of dust. Thorpe is a bit timid compared to Winnie and Sharona, but once he settles in and gets comfortable he is very chill.

A speck of dust? Really?

I am still the cutest.
So where was Sharona you ask? Here's a pic I snapped of Rona while Thorpe and Winnie napped in the dog beds:

Couch to myself. Loves it.
We learned a lot about what it would be like to have three dogs, and how different it is to take care of a really big dog. Sharona seems like such a lightweight after having Thorpe around for a day! 


  1. Thorpe actually looks a bit like my childhood dog Benji.

  2. Looks like a lovely sleepover.

    ( can use the 'win' in Winnie whenever you want!)

    Love ya lots

  3. So glad to read Thorpe settled in so well with your two. We dog-sat for a friend's basset hound and Gus just stared at him like he was a dinosaur!


I'd love to know what you think! Thanks.
