So nice to see a video like this, when we consider the dreadful abuse we too often see. Enjoyed it but am now feeling guilty so am going to shut down this computer and take my foster dog for a walk :)

I was dogsitting at my house for several years. I loved it and we always had fun. There were several dogs that were 'friends' as their owners were. One of the funniest sights was a 13 year old red chow and a 4 year old 12 pound deer chihuahua marching out the door, side by side, to go 'visit' the neighbor's pit/lab mixes at the fence. They would hear my neighbor get home, and immediately insist on getting outside. I would hear a howl and whine, and the two here would hit the door; their buddies were out. The amount of p-mail was definitely smelly.
The last one I sat still here. A 10 year old doxie whose owner unexpectedly died. He had never socialized her with dogs, grass, cats, children. He drove around with her on his lap and she still loves to ride, but is out of control even with specialized harnessing because of 9 years in the driver's lap. She will stay here the rest of her life, but as she attacks other dogs, big and small, I can no longer dogsit in my home. So, a good friend of mine is now dogsitting.

I've contacted dog walkers, but they never get back to me. For 2 years, I was able to to hire a college student-ROTC that took my 2 hounds jogging for about 6 miles twice a week. They loved him so much.
I'm frustrated because i'm scared that a person isn't strong enough to control them, that they might be sold for drugs, taken to a dog fight ring, just plain stolen, get loose and run over by a car. It seems that everyone has false IDs, etc. several of my neighbors hired a dog walker-and the dog never came back- ID that people asked to kepp were false-the person was non-existe as the French say.
My hounds lie down when I say "Open wide" and they get fish oil. To them-NO!!-means sit in a hurry. . Off -get off the bed- down-leave it-brush our teeth means to hop on a table and get the teeth brushed- I can yell -IN- and they go in. Bed-they go to be locked up while the front door is open-sit- I've had health problems, They get the good dog discount at the vet. They think that aggressive very small dogs are puppies, and just hold them down with their paws until the owner picks it up.
All of this makes me appreciate that there are still really great people out there.

I have a friend who's a professional dog-sitter, either welcoming the dogs into his own home, or if there are other responsibilities (such as cats, chickens, small mammals, etc) moving into the host home for the duration. It can actually be really boring living in someone else's house for a week or so, so I'll suggest he makes vidoes of himself from now on! Skylar's a cutie, & very lucky to have such a dedicated care-giver.

I sort of wish I had not watched that video as it made this elderly fellow weep. It just brought back so many wonderful memories of my own sweet lady whippet who passed away 3 years ago aged around 18. I rescued her when she was about 2.5 y.o.a. after she had been very badly abused and injured.
She behaved in exactly the same way as Skylar. She loved everyone and every other animal, wanted to play most of the time when not spread out in a chair or in my bed. She adored going for walks and enjoyed going camping where she could run free and play with small children (who she just about drowned with kisses) and other dogs.
Whippets are the best and I desperately miss her loving cuddles and kisses.

Hahahahahaha, it takes a lot of action to get a whippet to be tired, too funny!
