This is Trevor, the King Charles Cavalier that belongs to my youngest brother, Peter, and my sister-in-law Tricia.
When my brother needs a dog sitter, I usually move right in and stay at his house. This time I decided that Trevor could try and spend four days at the Jarvis House, which is in the background as he walks across the street in the Village Green Park.
That meant that I had to load his "stuff" into my truck and bring everything that might make him feel at home away from home.
Thankfully, he came with instructions, and the phone number of his vet, and treats..
We brought over his bed and blankie,
his water dish and food bowl with matching place mat,
his sweet snuggly dog bed which he likes to rest in while we work on the computer, his toys, and a baby gate.
He wears a stretchy leash, which I kept him on since he didn't know the area. Here he is getting to know the yard and driveway.
He started out slowly, checking out the Jarvis garden.
He charms a lovely neighbor,
visits the YMCA playground,
where they were putting up carnival rides.
We both passed the test, so I guess that he will come back again for an overnight visit. By the way, whoever said that dogs "just sleep a lot of the day" didn't know Trevor.
