You have to have patience, to have 4 dogs. Our dogs are so spoiled they require a lot of attention. It's not as much work, for multiple people, but for 1 person it's a little work.
Pete left over night for a bike race. Tom went out, Jake and Elvis spent the their time trying to bark them back
This morning I woke at 5 am, to Elvis & Jake eating paper cups, a little later, it was the the garbage, Jake, ate some food and it's plastic, then he ate a foil snack from Pete's nightstand, Pete forgot to pack in his bag. Snapped at me for trying to get it, he does not like giving back his finds. A little later he jumped in the pond to chase the turtle who was sunning on the rock, I chased him out, then he jumped in the tortoise enclosure to gulp tortoise poop, which he dropped in the yard and they all feasted on, before I was able to get to them. They ran through the back screen door, hoping they'd find someone was out front, and there was no one. Jake ate grass threw up, I cleaned it up, the other dogs think thats treats for them, he ate more grass threw up again , and it's not 11 am yet.
4 dogs is a lot of work.
They Are GOOD DOGS
