Have a small fuzzy visitor today.
Bestpalmom accepted an offer on her house, contingent upon passing a home inspection - and the home inspectors are going through with a fine-tooth comb today. Small fuzzy critters need to move out for such things. While Teddy is a tiny critter - six pounds, I think she said - it would be easy for him to get lost, hurt, or in the way as they are coming and going and thumping on pipes. Not sure exactly what the inspectors do, but I imagine watching to make sure the dog does not slip out is not particularly high on their list.
He is a distraction, so I am not sitting in a blubbering heap and sobbing about my missing kinders.
He is marginally housebroke - by the time Bestpalmom got him, he was at least five or maybe eight - I honestly cannot remember when she got him, and he is 14 now - anyway, the old lady that owned him before diapered him. So it was a challenge for her to teach him to potty. He does not go to the door and bark or anything for me to know when he needs to go, so I just watch him and mostly just take him outside every hour or two. After being well trained by the larger version - Summit is the same color, and percentage wise has the same amount of fluff, just in a larger package - I take Teddy out on the leash to avoid escape attempts!

He is helpful. Not so much for getting major cleaning accomplished, but very helpful for keeping breakdowns at bay!

House inspectors check everything about a house to make sure the potential buyers don't get any unpleasant surprises: House structure, electrical wiring, heating/AC, plumping, appliances, etc.
Hubby fought with me about us having one done on our house but I put my foot down and I kept it down. Sure enough, a massive termite infestation was found out in the garage during the three hour inspection. The real estate broker and the bank forced the owner to fix the damage--cost him over 1K back in 2003.
Hubby was totally amazed!
