we are dog sitting for our neighbors while they are in Hawaii. this is their dog, his name is Jimmer. he is a very sweet, well mannered dog, he loves the kids, and most of all loves me. he follows me wherever i go and is always a willing buddy to sit next to. some funny things about his visit are - when they brought him, the also brought his cage, which he slept in the first few nights, after that he decided he would rather not and has started to refuse to go in... so now he sleeps with us at the foot of our bed. they also said he doesn't go on the sofa.. well the kids favorite thing to do is sit on the couch and call him up to cuddle. we may have ruined their dog. :) either way, we are very happy to have him and will be quite sad when his family gets back.
