Hi, my name is Ron

Hello humans.

If you're reading this, you've found the website that my owners have put together. I gave them the idea, really. Let me tell you a bit about myself. My name is Ron and I'm a Weimaraner. I turn 1 in a couple of weeks and have been living with my humans, Tanya and Michael, since I was 8 weeks old. I quite like it here - they take good care of me and we have a lot of fun. But they like to travel, the humans, and they started running out of people to look after me when they were away! That's what gave them the idea for this website - they thought maybe if I didn't mind sharing my yard with another human's dog sometimes, that maybe other human's dogs wouldn't mind sharing their yard with me when my humans are away. I'm quite excited about it all really. I love making new friends at the beach and the park, so now I'm looking forward to making new friends in their own home, and in my home!

Hopefully my humans are clever enough to get the word out there about this website. It's such a community, us dogs and our human carers, that we should all try and help each other out. I'm also looking forward to telling you all about the journeys I go on and the friends I make along the way, so I hope you'll keep reading my blog.

For now, I hope everyone is getting ready to have a great weekend. I know I am. My humans will be home all weekend which means lots of fun time in the garden. They always seem to speak sternly to me when they're gardening, saying I make more work for them. I don't really understand what they mean, I'm just helping. But for some reason, it's OK if they dig, just not when I do! 

The humans planted their vegie garden for Summer a few weeks ago - they don't have much space for it but they do what they can. I am quite keen on the little cucumber seedlings, but as there were only four to start with, I've really had to pace myself. So far I've gotten two, and by the time the humans notice one is missing, they know it's too late to do anything! Sneaky, sneaky.

Anyway I had a pretty big run tonight and I'm desperately in need of a nap so until next time...
