These are two women whose dogs, Raven and Lady, are regulars at the 4 o'clock playtime. And the standard Aussie is Zeus, of course.
We've been working on leaving Bandit "home alone" when everyone is out of the house. So far, so good! He's been left alone, though under Simba's watchful eye, for a little more than three hours at a time. I do prepare in advance and scatter chewies upstairs and down and fill up his Busy Buddy with Natural Balance Sweet Potato & Fish treats. Did you know that the Natural Balance company is owned by Dick Van Patten, the guy who played the dad on the television show “Eight is Enough?” Hopefully, Bandit will continue doing well when home alone, because it makes us feel so much better rather than having to crate him.
