Dog Days

The day after we arrived at our new house in West Virginia, our friends, Julie and Tim, came with a dining room set that they got from us several years ago. When they moved from Florida to Virginia they no longer had room for it and had it in storage.

They arrived on a Saturday with their two dogs, Harley and Link. Harley is an older Shih Tzu and Link is a young Poodle mix that Julie found wandering on the side of the road.

For the three days they were here, the house was separated into a dog zone and a cat zone. The cat zone was upstairs and the dog zone was downstairs. The divider was the bottom of the stairs and very often there was a staredown between Frankie and Link.

The dogs were kept in the bedroom at night and several times during the day which allowed our cats to come downstairs to eat and visit with us. I’m sure after that long drive here they didn’t need the stress of dealing with dogs but cats are resilient and once the dogs were gone it was like nothing happened. They were out and running through the house without a care in the world.

    Super that you have your dining room furniture back – in that house I’m sure you have a lot more room for the furniture. Moving is such a HUGE process – it was nice I’m sure to have friends visiting so soon after you moved in – did you put them to work unpacking boxes? HAHA Just kidding. They sure have cute pups – I have a soft spot for Shih Tzus as my sister has always had at least one sometimes two.

    The dogs are so adorable, but that is a lot of disruption for the feline gang. Happy they readjusted so quickly and are back to getting to know their new surroundings.
