Canine Christmas 2013 Part 2


2013 Festival Fund raiser is my 5th. 2009 through 2013 are in my labels if you need a dog fix.



My friend Renee is part of an exchange program for Chinese Children. She is a Kindergarten teacher and has 2 small, adorable Chinese boys, age 4 and 6 living with her for a month. While they are with her they are not allowed to speak their language but must speak in English only.




Each night she bathes them in the bathtub, which is a new adventure for them. Clyde the 60 pound dog, is also a new adventure, they have never had a dog. Clyde watches the bath process and every night the boys say.. You bathe dog in tub. Renee explains, dogs get baths in the yard, not the tub. Only boys.



One morning she was in the bedroom and heard loud laughter and giggles coming from the kitchen. She found the two boys giving a bath to the dog in the middle of the kitchen tile by using their apple juice.... the boys, the tile and poor Clyde needed a for real bath.

OH what a cute story about the two little Chinese boys. BUT--where are their parents? I could never let anyone else take care of my children --especially at that age. I know they are learning English and learning our customs, BUT?????? Interesting...

Cute doggie photos.
Hugs,
Betsy

The boys sound like a lot of fun!
Love these pics! The black pup reminds me of a dog I knew for a long time. Her name was "Baby" and she was my friend's, Michael, pride and joy for sixteen years. :) She was a black lab mix from a rescue.

I can just picture the mess, laughter and a memory being made. What an adventure having 2 little boys in the house. Your photos always bring a smile to my face and that smile seems to stay all day. Thank you!
