- wastebaskets on bathroom counters
- area separators for Cookie's bowl and Jay's bowl in place
- backyard fence checked for any dachshund-size spaces
- all gates closed and latched (brick behind north gate)
Okay, looks as though we are ready for fun and games! The little guy is a romping, playful rascal. And it is up to the human part of the pack to deal with this aspect of the visit, for as a host, Cookie will share the space, but play? I don't think so. He's always been a serious-minded dog, and at eighteen, youngsters can annoy him very easily (both of the human and canine variety.)
So, JayJay, we're ready for ya! Come on over.
