Our friends have asked us to look after their dog while they go home to America for two weeks over Christmas.

Mavis is a retired racing greyhound, very placid, needing minimal exercise. I get on really well with her and she usually chooses to sit with me when there's a group of us around her house. She tolerates Freddie, our bouncy 6-month old labmaraner but isn't interested in playing.

Are we crazy for considering this?
Any tips for introducing her into our (Freddie's!) house temporarily?
Anything we should be thinking about?

I would introduce them on neutral territory. Maybe you and your friend go out for a short walk and let them run together, with you then taking all the leads and walking them home to your house. It might also be a good idea trying it for an over nighter before the event, just to see how it goes. It would give you chance to plan.
