I am so blessed. Two of the nicest men have moved into the guest house.........for two years!
Rick, Gilberto and Griffin, the dog moved in the first of October.
It was "like" at first sight. Their calmness and drama free personalities were the first indication that I wanted them to live here. Add to that Griffin, who is the cutest dog, and it is a "Win, Win".
Rick is originally from Pennsylvania and Gilberto is from Zacatecas. Well matched, they are delightful to sit at a dinner table and have an interesting conversation with. Or there is coffee time in the garden. I always look forward to seeing them.
Griffin just melts my heart. He sees me through the glass front door of my house and his tail immediately starts wagging. I brought him chewy bones back from Texas. He really enjoyed those along with chasing them as I threw them around the garden. I think we have bonded.
Velcro on the other hand is in minimal tolerance mode. As far as I know
there has not been a confrontation. So far so good. It wouldn't be that Griffin would have a confrontation with her - just the opposite, I'm afraid.
However, it's been three months so by now they should be used to each other.
I'm just loving looking out and seeing Rick, Gilberto, and Griffin when I'm in the kitchen doing something. From other parts of my house, I can't see the guest house or the residents.
The best of ALL worlds.
A dog that I don't have to be home to feed or walk. Great neighbors who are so thoughtful and fun to know.
