L-R: Scooter, Jeff, Lucas

See that dog in the picture, up there?  He looks really sweet, doesn't he?  Well, looks can be deceiving, that dog, right there, is a maniac!

This dog is going to kill me...or I am going to kill this dog!  

While my brother, Jeff, and his lovely little family (wife, Nikola and son, Lucas) are in the Czech Republic for 3 weeks, I am house sitting.  Basically, the house looks after itself, but it is air conditioned, and my house is not.  Score!  

So, really, I am devil dog sitting.  Scooter is a 1.5 years old and still behaves like a puppy.  The ad on Petfinder.com said he is a Labrador/Golden Retriever mix, but I have seen pretty good photographic evidence that suggests that he is, in actual fact, a Labrador/Pit Bull mix.

Really, he means well.  Really, he does.  Right?

For example, when people are in the pool, he feels that it is his duty to make sure that they are safe by dragging them back to the stairs.  Or if he can't get to the pool (because maybe someone lashed him to the wrought iron patio table), then he will bark incessantly to alert the entire neighbourhood of the impending danger of being in the water.  Charming...

Or when he dug his nose into the very closed diaper bag, did not disturb a thing, but was able to pluck my black leather Coach wristlet out and take it to the couch to give it a good chew.  Why?  Because I'm pretty sure that he thought the cow wasn't dead yet.

I guess I'm done using it!

The bad news:  this is not the first item that has been damaged.  
The good news:  Maggie's face has never been cleaner!  :)

And just for a little Maggie update, here is a photo collage from when my sister, Kari was playing with her last week.  She is now 3 months old!

That's my girl!

More to come,
