While on vacation Mom and Dad have left their dog Lizzie with us. Lizzie would prefer to stay with Rachel but Rachel can not have pets where she lives. We already have a dog Lady, a yellow lab, that stays in our backyard. The last time Lizzie stayed with us she started a fight with Lady. Since Lizzie is a small cocker her chances of winning are slim. So I have decided to keep Lizzie in the house and take her for frequent bathroom breaks. Lizzie is also staying in the house because of her nervous problem. I do not know what is wrong with her but if she is in a strange situation she just shakes all over. She seems to be doing well with us this time. I just don’t know how long we can take her smell! Even after Mom gives her a bath she has this rotten odor! Mom thinks it is her breath but that is just part of it. Tara came over today and could not even eat when Lizzie was close to her because of the smell. We may have to go find some doggie perfume!
