The Sleepover

Bart's people were out of town cause his dad got a big award. Bart's big brother was supposed to take care of him, but as a DJ, he's prone to last minute gigs.  Which meant, Bart had to sleepover at our house twice in 10 days!

The first time, Bart was up and at 'em at 3:30 am. I think he was simply ready to go home. Plus Bart has a doggy door and unlimited water at his house. We have no water in the bedroom and we keep the door closed (cause Mabel used to wake me up every night, practically knocking down the back door to get to critters. When I finally tried shutting the bedroom door...no more chasing critters!) I did put a small bowl of water in the bathroom for him but both nights, but he needed a potty break at 3:30.

The 2nd time we kept him was the last night his pawrents were away so we kept him most of the next day. I was impressed with Mabel's generosity toward him. She had NO issues which actually surprised me! Mabel is the jealous sort! She allowed him on our bed when he needed cuddles after that 3 am potty break. She shared her toys and she showed no concern when I fed him her kibble stew in the kitchen while she was fed on the porch. I'm very proud of my girl!

Bart, Mom's kinda funny about leg room... You might wanna move a bit! 

Bart slept most of the night in Mabel's bed on the floor. Sometimes he would come over to my side of the bed, check on me and go to sleep there.

Mabel took it all in stride... 

The next day, they sunbaked side by side. Bart was beside Mabel before I showed up with the camera! 

They hunted...

And this toy was in a different place every time I walked to the shop!

By the afternoon, Bart seemed kinda sad. We took him home just before his pawrents arrived.

Mabel you were so sweet to Bart. Even sharing your toys and bed! But I am sure Bart is glad to be home again. But now he knows he has a welcoming place to go if his parents go again.
OH and thank you again for my Frosty Paws. I shared half of them with the dogs at the shelter.

Oh, there is always so much fun when friends come for sleepover. We are so glad that you have a playmate to play with and it's so sweet of you to share your bed and toys with Bart. You're the best hostess, Mable!

Dogs are just so joyful, and they take good pictures too.

Sounds like Bart did pretty well. I always get stressed at other's people's houses AND when other dogs stay over at my house. Mabel was very nice to share her bed.

Your pal, Pip

Congratulations to Miss Mabel for being such a good hostess.
