While I am STILL looking for a job, I've taken on a few dog- sitting jobs.
This is Georgia. Sweet disposition, and quite the cuddle bug!
So, what are the perks of dog sitting?
1) Well of course, getting paid. But aside from that:
2) Free food! Of course, with the whole losing weight thing, it's been hard not to dive into the ice cream. But I haven't!
3) The dogs themselves. They are all so playful; well, except for the two I'm watching right now. Here's the scene:
Me: *pick up ball, go to backyard, dogs follow. I throw the ball. "Go get it!" I yell, enthusiastically.
Blaise & Dakota: "What, does she actually think we're going to get it? Let's watch her get it." And they sit there!
As I retrieved the ball from the bushes, I swear they grinned at me. But moving on.
4) Pools! I love houses with pools. LOVE them. Sure, I can go swimming whenever I want to at home, but with a bunch of people. At other people's houses, I have one all to myself. I am trying to spend a lot of time in them, because it's good exercise and easy on my knee. Should have brought the sunscreen though... right now I could be mistaken for a lobster.
Maybe it'll turn into a nice tan??
