House Guest

We were happy to have another houseguest this weekend.

Meet Ditto. A very sweet lab who lives with friends of ours. He is the kind of lab that is perfectly content to sleep at your feet all day but will spring (spring might be a little too energetic of a word...) to action the moment you are ready. He is incredibly laid back. He is also blind.

I was unsure how well he would get around our house but he has done amazingly well. He walks slowly and cautiously everywhere he goes and will follow your voice to navigate around furniture and up and down the stairs. I took him out to RDog yesterday (A Responsible Dog Ownership event hosted by the Lethbridge Kennel Club) and he had a great time getting cookies and pats from everyone. When we stopped to watch the demos he just laid down next to me and fell asleep. He was perfect. It was nice to pretend that this incredibly well behaved dog was mine. :)

Awww Ditto! Great pics of him. If they ever need another sitter we would take him for sure! You would just have to give us some pointers walking him! =)
