My name is Erica. I have a little black yorkie mix who loves to play (especially in the snow but never in the rain).
We have been best buds for nearly 7 years.
Sometimes we dogsit our friend Ruppert who has separation anxiety, barks at dogs, and needs to be carried up and down stairs. We love having him, and his parents are always comfortable leaving him to stay, to play, and to cuddle with Rick and I.
We live in an apartment in The Beaches. On weekends we wake up early and stroll to the park and off-leash area at the bottom of Silverbirch. Sometimes we run around, sometimes we just walk around and say hi to people and dogs, Rick sniffs, and I take photos. When we get hungry for breakfast we walk home. (We live on the third floor, so we do a lot of stairs).
Rick gets some treats for being such a good boy. I take off his leach, and he promptly brings his favourite toys to the middle of the livingroom, so we can get down to the business of playing. We play off and on throughout the day as I cook, clean and listen to the radio. Whenever he is calm and relaxing he gets calm and relaxing belly rubs.
We go for an afternoon walk and a walk before bed, and sometimes we walk around the neighbourhood in the afternoon depending on our schedule.
I work a 9-5, so we are not available during the day. However Rick and I are very available evenings, weekends, and holidays.
