Day 23: Still Dog sitting

Still dog sitting. She is lovely and it’s nice having the ever loving, ever forgiving presence of a dog in my life. But my goodness, she is A LOT of work. She is adorable and sweet and ALWAYS WANTS TO PLAY. Our schedule is as follows:

6 AM – A walk in the morning after she shoves her wet nose in my face. (At least half an hour.)

6:45 AM – Coffee for me. Breakfast for her, which she does not eat and picks at through the day. -_-

8:30 AM – Quick walk to pee before I go to work. (10-15 minutes around the block. Depends on how fast I feel like walking.)

6 PM – Long walk to burn off all that energy from sleeping all day (30 minutes) OR a quick walk and then an hour long trip to the dog park.

7:30 PM – Time to eat.


9:30 PM – Another long walk (30 minutes) And bed.

I barely have time to do much else besides take care of her. I’m rather glad she’s going back home this weekend, although I’m sure I’ll miss her when she’s gone. Absence does make the heart grow fonder.

If nothing else, I’ve realized how much time I have on my hands and how much of it I spend puttering around not working on the things I want to be working on. (Plus I get many, many steps in.) And now it’s almost time for our last long walk of the day before we head to bed.

Until tomorrow.
