House sitting and killer dogs

Posted by ON in Dear Diary

I took another house sitting gig. Two weeks this time. Normally they’re pretty chill. I do them as a sort of writing retreat and, hey, i even get paid a little.

It’s like i’m doing the Neil Gaiman Stay-At-Famous-People’s-Homes-And-Write-Genius-Prose thing, but more of the bargain bin version.

Anyway, the gig was pretty annoying at first. The owners were not so good at giving me essential information, like the code to get in their gated community, or (one of my requirements) the password to their WiFi.

They also didn’t mention their dog likes to eat other dogs.

    To be fair, they did mention he wasn't good with other dogs … they just didn't explain the extent to which he's bad with other dogs, and they didn't clarify how they usually get around that situation.

    I had a lovely time! Next time would prefer not being up on teh scary hill, but otherwise would totally do it again 🙂

    OMG I laughed at the bargain bin version. I hadn't thought of it that way, but I do the same thing. Now I'll have a good chuckle when I find myself writing at the next stay-over pet sitting gig. Thanks for that. Great balloon, too. @zooleft
