Default Can I borrow your dog?

All the security guards know me as the lady with the little black dog. The security guard in question and I are on good terms. He does the night watch so he had the experience of my many nightly pee walks when Harry needed to be taken out 2-3 times a night. That's not normal dog owner behaviour here. Anyway he didn't pass my details on. He passed the message to me. Though interestingly that earlier neighbour is much more lukewarm with me now...since I was not obliging to lend Harry to her. Ha ha ha the trials and tribulations of neighbourly relationships.

I use to borrow my neighbor's dog to walk and love up. She knew me well; I babysat her grandchildren often. She was an elderly widow and I was in high school at the time. I would take her dog for a nice long walk and would occasionally teach the dog a few tricks. I did this because I loved dogs but I also wanted to help out my neighbor. This arrangement worked out great for both of us. I don't think it is always wierd if someone wants to borrow your dog but I would need to know them really well and understand why they wanted to do this.

My sister wanted to borrow a dog from me once, she and her son were having puppy fever. I lent her Jewel all right but told her she had to take both foster dogs too, at the time I had a chihuahua and a beagle. She got asked if she was a dog walker.

They're having puppy fever again and asked me to come over with Jewel. I replied that my foster dog is blowing her coat and they should come over and brush her for me instead.

My dad says I should make them clean up my yard too.

I wonder how much longer she'll keep asking to borrow my dog?

That is just creepy. My first response would have been... "uh, NO!"
I've never heard of anyone wanting to borrow someone elses dog... that is just crazy. Let alone someone you hardly know.

I agree that having someone you hardly know is creepy. In my case I babysat her grandchildren. My barometer would be if I feel comfortable leaving my infant child with you then I would be OK leaving my dog.

KristaLynn I think it is great you let your sister and your nephew experience dog ownership on a temp basis. I wish more people were like your sister and don't just succumb to warm puppy breath. Nothing like a blown coat for a little reality to set in. She sounds like she would be a great dog owner.
