Dogsittin


I am dog sitting this week for two cutie pies. (not awake yet - will continue later.)



Later:
On Friday, I began dog sitting the cuties you see above. The dogs live across town. In order to sit them, I'm staying in their house for a week. Kinda like a vacation but I still go to work everyday.
What I find weird is how quickly I am settling into the a new routine; a routine revolving around the dogs. When I awake up in the morning, I automaticallylet the dogs out. I time leaving work in order to let the dogs out. (Somebody burst into song! "Who? Who?)
The dogs have a bedtime ritual. The dogs go upstairs about nine thirty at night. If I am not upstairs for bed by ten, one will come downstairs and look at me expectantly before returning upstairs. If I am still not upstairs in the ten minutes, one of the dogs, Piper, will bark. I thought my curfew days were over.
I checked with the owner to make sure I was not imagining the meanings of the dog's actions. I am not. The dogs have a curfew for the owners too.

I did dog watch and house sitting for a month when I lived in Hawaii for a couple who were friends of mine. I never got comfortable in their house but did with the neighbor.

Which would be why I share my house with cats.

That is hilarious. I never was a good dog sitter.

My dogs bark for treats, bark to wake me up, bark at odd noises...

They have yet to give me a curfew.

It's hilarious to see your life being run by a couple of dogs. Maybe this is your hint that you should get a dog for yourself.

oh, the doggies can rule your life. we know the head-no meaning, the spin-around meaning, the bark meaning, the howl meaning, the expectant look meaning.....

they have us perfectly trained.
