Dog Sitting for Another Havanese

Well, last week I was super busy but also excited because we were dog sitting for another Havanese while my neighbors went on vacation.

A little back story, my neighbors lost their previous dog about a year an a half ago, when I brought home Sonic last June, they fell in love with him as much as I had and they wanted to know all about the breed. They ended up talking with Sonic's breeder and were put on a list for a future puppy. They got lucky when another family wanted a female and got their puppy, Sonic's full blooded brother, around Christmas (the breeder breeds in consecutive cycles with a year off afterwards). We were thrilled to welcome another Hav into the neighborhood and I love having convenient play dates just next door.

When they were planning their vacation, they asked me if my husband and I would mind watching Tanner for them. He was such a sweet, loving boy and just kept reminding me of Sonic at that age.

So now the fun part, PICTURES! Unfortunately, I was so busy with the three of them (Sonic 14 months, Tanner and Aries 7 months each) that I didn't get many playing pictures. But here are some of my favorite. The first one is of Sonic and Tanner curled up sleeping beside me (with Tanner closest to me and Sonic farther away), the second one is of both their faces (Sonic has more white/gray, while Tanner's is mostly black), and finally is one of all three of them.

House full of Havs, cute!
How did Tanner do with his family gone? Was he confused or just having fun with another pack?

Tanner really did great for his first time away from his family (I think his mom was more nervous and missed him more). We were lucky enough that it was my neighbors house and we had free reign to take Tanner back over for some play time in his usual surroundings. He became my shadow and was always in my lap when I was sitting down, (my two are more side snuggles) but my neighbor said he's constantly a lap dog for her too. I really think he settled in over here quicker with my two than if we didn't have our Havs.

I remember when my kids were little that it was easier to have one of their friends over because then they wouldn't bother me! Hopefully that was the same for you with everyone playing hard and then crashing, looks like that was the case from looking at your pictures. That's a great set up to have with your neighbors!

How handy to have you as a neighbour! Guess maybe she will be able to return the favour!
