We had a very friendly visitor

We were so happy when Nick and CAt asked us to watch Mitzi while they went on their trip to Europe! How lucky are they! 
Westin was so excited to have a constant companion with him.

He couldn't ever take his eyes off him!

Mitzy just wanted to play play play which is right up Westin's alley.

Sometimes Westin didn't get it.

But other times he couldn't get enough! He wanted the toy just as much as Mitzi did.

Luckily all we had to do was show Westin his toys so Mitzi could keep hers.

Every once in a while they would get back together for more.

Just a few funny things about Mitzi's visit. I hated walking her (sorry Cat) but seriously, its hard stuff walking a dog while pushing a stroller and having to pick up after them 3 or 4 times a day. Mitzi is strong.

The toy Mitzi keeps playing with in the pictures somehow got a hole in it. The stuffing got out and apparently she ate some. In the middle of the night Mitzi starts to choke and since she slept with us I was right there to witness it and "help" her. I jumped out of bed and yelled "Matt, Mitzi is choking!" Matt proceeded to jump out of bed and ran to Wesin's room turned on the lights and tried to figure out what was going on. While I was dying laughing trying to get Matt's attention I was watching Mitzi THROW-UP on our bed! GROSS! Then I realize it was just the fur ball she had eaten earlier, thank goodness. I was so worried about her though. The first thing that went through my mind was " What am I going to tell Cat" and How do you do CPR on a dog?" Lucky for me. We didn't need to do any of that.

Living in sunny California we always have our door open! I had a gate up for a while but got sick of it.  Mitzi was really good for the most part about not leaving but she sure knew how to sneak out! She went in to the neighbors apartments and even made it downstairs. Luckily she just wanted to sniff the place out and not go anywhere.

By the time she had left us I was ready for it but for the next week or so when I would come home I would be excited to see Mitzi, only to find an empty house.

Sounds like you guys need to get a dog. Maybe Rex? I know how much Matt loves him.
