Chosen by Ruby and Buzz’s owners we were to be their first pet & house sitters. While on the sit it gave us the opportunity to reconnect to our hometown as we still have our own home leased here, on the Redcliffe Peninsula, while we pet & house sit full time. We were to be looking after Ruby a little four month old Labrador/Kelpie X & Buzz who is an elderly Labrador.
Ruby and Buzz are the best of mates sleeping and playing together. Buzz did have his limits with her and certainly would let her know when he had enough. A deep growl and a gentle snap was all it took. Ruby went on long walks each day and Buzz did only a short trip out due to suffering from arthritis in his back legs. They both enjoyed these outings and when Buzz went out Ruby had a little anxiety being separated from him.
Feed time was quite comical with Buzz and Ruby waiting at the laundry door while we got their food ready. Buzz being the typical Labrador though, just needed to come in and inspect what we were doing each time. Buzz has medication included into his food daily. We had a lot of fun with these two lovely dogs and on the owners return have been asked would we sit again next year.
