Along with our two dogs, we are dog sitting for my brother-in-law as his family is out of the state. Shipley, their German Shepard is a really good dog. It has been fun watcing the dynamics of the dogs. My dog Zoe, American Staffordshire Terrior mix, has assumed the role as alpha female. This gives her the unique opportunity to be left out when the two shepards play. But since she is fairly lazy, that doesn’t bother her too much. Right now they are all lying down surrounding me. It’s pretty peaceful in the house right now. My shepard/akita mix, Belle, is lying beside me asking for attention. That does make blogging a bit more difficult. My wife and kids are watching “Journey to the Center of the Earth” with Brandon Frazier again. Yes, you can guess why my wife is watching it.
