Yesterday, ahead of the storm, ahead of the floods, under bright blue skies, the kids—Mike and Shannon—arrived in Maine with the kit—Penny—and the dogs—Holly and Somara. The dogs haven’t been here for two years, but they remembered everything, from the backyard to the the bulkhead down cellar, the main way they go in and out. The dogs have settled in nicely and have also remembered who is the soft touch when it comes to treats. (That would be me.)
Penny, on the other hand, was fairly traumatized when she got here and bolted directly under the bed in the room where Mike and Shannon are staying. However Penny ate and did other things she needed to do. She also came out when Mike and Shannon went to bed.
So everyone is here, and we are loving it.
The doors at the end of the hall are working beautifully. So far, no cat fights. In fact, I don’t think our cats even know there is another cat in the house.
Behind our house, there are trails in the cool, green woods, and this morning Shannon and Mike took Holly and Somara there for a walk, where they could both run off-leash. Here they are coming back from their romp.
And here are Holly and Somara resting in my room as I write. Shannon and Mike have gone to visit a friend, and we are dog sitting.
I must admit I am in seventh heaven to have two dogs in the house.

Sweet fur buddies <3! Have a great visit!
They really are!
Aw, I know you miss your own little buddy. Glad the pups make you happy. An I know you are thrilled to have the kids around.
“The dogs haven’t been here for two years, but they remembered everything.” I believe that. They have a way of noticing everything.
Glad the kit has done her necessary business in the proper places; if that keeps up you are golden.
Glad the whole family have settled in… I bet you are enjoying having the dogs with you.. I still miss ours.. 😥
Happy for you that they have arrived safely. Enjoy the time you have together.
Nice to read this happy post, Laurie.
They obviously feel right at home!
They really do!
I’m pleased it is all working out
Thanks, Derrick. So are we!
What great fun, what bounty of love and doggies, and kitty cats!
We love them all, that’s for sure.
It’s so great they are all safe. What are they hearing about things back at their home in NC?
Sure is! As it turned it, their area didn’t get hit too bad. However, not far away, lots of rain and downed trees.
So happy they are all safely with you Laurie. I am sure Penny will feel more confident and at home as time goes by. Holly and Somara look adorable and so comfy. Please give all the fur babies a big pat from us all and enjoy your time together!🙂💖🐕 xxx
Thanks, Xenia! Penny is doing really well, Within a day, she had settled into her “suite.”
Glad everyone is safe and you can enjoy their visit. Win/win. 🙂
Sounds like great fun.
Sure is! So great to have them here.
Sounds like a wonderful visit for everyone and I bet the dogs are absolutely enjoying the walks, extra treats and being spoiled by the wonderful dog sitters.
It is so great to have them here, and we are lucky to have trails behind the house where the dogs can run free.
Glad they are safely with you and having some time to visit. Hope all is well at home for them.
Looks like a good visit – the dogs seem particularly happy.
