The Reluctant Babysitter

Freddy, the wiener dog, completed his doggie rescue work this week by taking care of two puppies. He babysat them for an evening and overnight so they could have their "boy/girl" (spay/neuter) surgery the next morning. Of course, Freddy didn't know he was babysitting until Daddy put up the pool fence.

Freddy is always glad when fosters ares puppies and not big doggies. But, the puppies were bigger than Freddy. Their names were Sheriff and and sister. They were beautiful, adorable, and rambunctious! Freddy totally ignored them. Totally.

Sheriff and Malibu
Perhaps because of Freddy's attitude, the puppies left him alone. They did think Malibu was another puppy, and they were fascinated with Luna. Malibu agreed she was a puppy so she could eat their food. Luna tolerated their advances like a good girl. But, she did tire of Sheriff's thinking her tail was a toy.

The adults were glad when Mommy went to bed. They went with her. The puppies played into the wee hours of the morning. To get any sleep, the boys put Sheriff and Buttercup in our doggie crate. They only whimpered a little bit before they zonked out!

Freddy's human brothers.
Freddy and the gang were going to pick up Buttercup and take her home to the rescue group. There was a bit of a glitch at the shelter. Sheriff, Buttercup and their sister had their surgeries on the same day. When their sister was picked up, that owner took the paperwork for all three puppies. When Freddy and his entourage arrived at the shelter, they said Buttercup and Sheriff were already gone. Not! Mommy and Daddy refused to leave until the workers physically checked the cages....wouldn't you know, Sheriff and Buttercup were still there! Sheriff's Mommy left right before Freddy arrived because they told her that Sheriff was gone. Mommy called the rescue to let them know that Sheriff was still there and they wouldn't leave Sheriff at the shelter. Freddy and his group waited until Sheriff's Mommy came back for him. She was upset that they told her somebody else took Sheriff. Don't worry... Freddy knows what to do! And, as his fans know, he doesn't take "no" for an answer.
