Animal sitting

It's been a while since I posted last but wanted to share a part of what I've been up to for the last few weeks!  Here's a little story about Stella-belle and me I shared on FB a couple weeks ago.

 Let me tell you about my dog-neice Stella bear; I'm dog sitting her (she weighs in at about 100# and is an Anotolian Shepherd) sweet as sweet can be. I guess I pay to much attention to her (is there really such a thing when it comes to animals?). Yesterday I was with her a couple hours watering tree's and flowers plus 1 horse lol; she decided to follow me down the road, I took her back about 4 times then made her get in my car (not hard to do because she thinks the back seat is exciting) took her to the shop and they watched her in the bead warehouse while I swapped out a couple of things for my sister. Then she and I headed home, I tried one more time to leave then locked her in the garage and called the neighbor Barb M. (THANK YOU Barb & Jimmy), she had Jimmy let Stella out for the rest of the day. This morning the same thing, I gave her a dog biscuit, I went to my car as fast as I could and she came bolting around the corner with said biscuit in her mouth and followed me. I went back (I think she jumped about 3 foot in the air with excitement becuase I was coming back), took a dog bone from the freezer (defrosted) and took it in the garage, threw it on her bed and high tailed it back to my car, as I was pulling out she came running around the garage with bone in mouth... I yelled 'STAY' and so far she stayed. Now unless a neighbor calls to tell on her I think we are good. We are not supposed to award her for this behavior but gosh she is so happy when I am there. Just a cute story I thought I'd share (and attached is her picture) Happy dog?
