Life as a Chicago dog-wrangler

Yesterday I unexpectedly found myself with twice as many dogs as usual. My neighbor was shocked when she walked out the front door and saw this:  “Wait, you got more dogs!?” she stuttered Much to my neighbor’s relief I informed her the new additions were just guests for
Yesterday I unexpectedly found myself with twice as many dogs as usual. My neighbor was shocked when she walked out the front door and saw this: 

“Wait, you got more dogs!?” she stuttered

Much to my neighbor’s relief I informed her the new additions were just guests for the day. And oh what a day it was. The inmates ran the asylum, jumping and romping across every inch of my small apartment. I thought walks would be the toughest part of the day, but I never guessed how difficult getting out the door would be.

Once I said the word “outside” it was complete anarchy in front of the door

There was one quiet moment, but it wasn’t a relaxing one. Once I said the word “hungry” there was nowhere for me to escape. Literally, I was surrounded.

“There’s four of us and one of you. Don’t do anything anything stupid. Hand over our dinner.”

Walked, exercised and fed, the gang eventually settled down. When Emily came home she couldn’t help but laugh at the absurdity of the four-dog circus and their hapless ringleader.

If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em

Dutch and Riley go home today so I’ll be left with only two dogs to keep up with. It’s pretty much going to be a vacation!

  1. A reminder that TWO is probably enough! (Although four was probably fun for one day.) 😉

    🙂 One dog makes you happy, four dogs well you are really lucky (it doesnt matter if it is for short time only )

  3. you need a bigger sofa in case they come back soon :o) but I think Eko’s B&B is a great place :o)

  4. LOVE! haha is Eko’s behind on the couch in that last picture ? Penny is aware of the camera 🙂 What sweet eyes!

  5. Elyse says:

    You are an amazing brother/friend/dog lover!

  6. Kyla says:

    Revenge is sweet. Let those owners each take care of Penny for a day.

    Lol. Once in a while I have a total of 5 dogs, and just like you, once Cynthia comes home they are all walked, tired, but not fed since they eat after we do. You were certainly busy with so many gorgeous doggies.

  8. Yikes……now that is a HOUSE full!!

    Hugs, Pam and Sam

  9. Love how Dutch relinquished his spot to Emily. Such a gentleman. I also noticed that Riley has Eko’s spot. That makes Eko a kind host, although he does seem to be working his way backwards into Penny’s hold on her person. Bet things are kinda boring now that you’re back down to two. Glad to see you survived.

  10. Oh, what fun that must have been, bet you were ready for a good long nap at the end of the day. Love the pictures! Hugs and nose kisses

  11. So, you’re trying out the crazy dog guy idea out??

  12. Francesca says:

    Love, love, LOVE your daily posts, Will!

  13. So much fun! I love when the monkeys take charge of the zoo!

  14. Emmadog says:

    Mom loves watching other dogs but she also says when they leave the three of us seem so very simple in comparison! You did great!

  15. Misaki says:

    Agree with Easy: you definitely need a bigger sofa lol

  16. fozziemum says:

    Haahaaaha love the door pic…I have a saying here ..someone opened a can of idiots in the house 🙂 hugs Fozziemum

  17. Once you’ve had 4…I think 2 will be a snap…Penny is going to miss all her friends though.

  18. I bet it does feel like a vacation only having two after that! What a great time with those four though 🙂
