the death of a stuffy edition.

Oh yes, and Darwin wasn't the smart doggy in our http://evolutionofdarwin.blogspot.com/2011/11/10nov2011-smart.html" target=_blank>last post. No way... She'd never try that... she won't even push a door open with her nose.
And thanks for the input on the day care situation. I tried asking them about putting her in the other room with less dogs, but they said that area is for dogs being boarded and not for general day care use. They said they'd put really shy dogs in there or new dogs that aren't used to being at daycare, but "Darwin is a seasoned pro". I've tried looking for other daycares (the ones near us seem to all be very crowded) and entertaining the idea of a dog walker (though I have to admit I don't know how comfortable I am with giving a "stranger" a key to our place), but for now we're sticking with once a week daycare and playdates with her brother when possible.


  1. Hi B and Darwin, my mom and dad worried about what they'd do too, because I need a little help during the day. So they asked people at the doggy training center that they go to and they found two people, who they came to trust and who take turns during the week looking after me and taking us for walks. Even though people come highly recommended with references, there's a period of adjustment, while the trust gets built up because they have your keys. But for us, it's worked out well.

  2. RIP stuffie, what a way to go:))

    We hope the playdates with her brother go well and hopefully you find someone you feel comfortable with to look after Darwin.
