We just finished dog-sitting Holly for a week while our friend Jerry was out of town. Holly is a Bull Terrier. She is very solid and a strong girl! She would get a little excited and bark when George watered the plants in the morning, otherwise she is pretty mellow.
Holly is a sweet dog and it was fun to get to know her better.
My sister asked if we thought we might want to get a dog now. I answered "No. But we did enjoy her company." It's the same as with kids for us, we enjoy them once in a while but it's nice to give them back to their parents.
I also wanted to share this one photo I found, in memory of Conrad.
