I've Gone to the Dogs



Look at these keys!
They represent my current stable of canine clients.  Just one this weekend, but in the upcoming two weeks I will be wrangling 5 dogs (2 in one house)!
I am very impressed with the lady I am working for, she has gotten this business up and running very quickly and has marketed our services very well through various websites and social media.

Of course, it was driving me slightly "crackers", as they say in the dogworld,  trying to settle on the best system to keep it all straight along with my Japanese students (and that famous time zone difference). I think I finally conquered the scheduling challenge and feel less frazzled.

Most dogs require two visits a day while their owners are gone and so far it has usually been over a weekend.  

However, I have a sweet 8 week old  Goldendoodle puppy that I visit every day during the week while his parents are at work.  He is a ball of excitement and it's hard to get a picture of him that doesn't just come out in a blur.


Oh yes, we have some fun during my noontime visit!

If anyone can make the jobs situation work, you can.
It all sounds a little complicated to me, but then I belong to the Underwood typewriter days.
