Terriers and a Dead Bird

I’m dog sitting for a fellow foster this weekend while she attends a family wedding out of state. She has four dogs of her own plus a foster momma and six 3-week-old puppies.

I Guess Now We’re Friends?

Harvey has been doing better every time I go upstairs. Sure he still hissed at me as I approach but as soon as I’m in a seated position he comes over for pets and play and treats.
