Thanks to Pet Central, I found the perfect house sitter/pet sitter. A biology major home from UAA to complete her core classes at Kodiak College, Sarah is the perfect sitter for our puppy. She loved the house, and when I interviewed her on Friday, Tok actually cried when she left.
I felt awful luring him back into his kennel and leaving him this morning. I called her mid morning to let her know I had left instructions on the fridge. I could hear her smile, "Actually, I am already here and playing him him before I head into work."
To check in on the little furball, I called Sarah tonight, the first in what will be nightly reports. She informed that Tok was on a playdate with a chocolate lab and having a ball. She took him to a friend's house nearby, and he is running off extra steam from being in the crate all day. She laughed, "Tok likes to, um, dominate." I chuckled, "Is he trying to hump the lab's head yet?" "Not yet..."
$15 a day. That is all she is costing us. I love it, but I still feel a wee bit guilty.
