As our plans for Thanksgiving solidified this fall,
I knew I needed to find a place for our sweet Annie to stay while we were out of town.
I called our vet early on, and was surprised to discover they were full!
Weeks in advance!
And I was a few animals deep into the waiting list.
After a lot of calling around and worrying,
it hit me that I have a friend who might be willing to help.
She was wonderfully willing to dog sit.
I was so relieved.
I figured Annie would be easy, a piece of cake
... but of course, she proved me wrong.
While we were gone:
She shed a massive amount of hair on a daily basis.
She threw up.
She developed an ear infection and shook her head non-stop,
causing her collar to rattle all night.
She threw up again.
She snored loudly.
She threw up yet again.
No problem, right?
Our friend deserves a medal!
Any good dog-sitting stories?
