My husband and I have been “babysitting” my daughter’s dog as she was pursuing new employment and a new place to live that allows dogs. We have been in the game since Thanksgiving. We love this min pin named Rufus, but we are lacking sleep. He has some issues with his kidneys and he is crazy about water. He is up 3 times every night. Just like having a new born. My husband is awake for the 10:30 and 2:00 shift. I don’t hear a thing. My alarm is set for 5:15 every morning, but Rufus prefers 4:00 in the morning. He wakes u us by whining loudly. We let him outside on the runner and give him water.
It’s annoying, but we love him and we will really miss him. Not sure how my daughter will deal with this when the time comes for him to return to his owner.
