Our travels took us to “Gold Country,” California, to care for a year and a half old Golden Retriever, Cody, and his “sister,” a 5 year old Pomeranian, Barbie.
Cody is a high energy, rambunctious boy, very curious, clever, determined, affectionate — all those wonderful golden traits to enjoy! Cody loved going for walks, swimming laps, and fetching his toys, with all the exuberance you’d expect of a boy his age.
In contrast, little Barbie…such a dear! Barbie had a near fatal dog attack which injured her trachea, making everything extra-strenuous for her little 5 pound body. But she did have lots of energy for putting Cody in his place when he was infringing upon her territory, (like the bed!)
In addition to caring for the dogs, there were also 3 pygmy goats and six chickens to feed and water, morning and evening. They were all very well behaved, and it was fun interacting with them!
