A few weeks ago, a new business was started in our home! Emily and Erik put together a pet sitting company. They call it Daddy Daughter Pet Sitting. Emily wrote out a business plan. They put an ad out. They have had a bunch of calls. This week we have two guests staying at our home. Our first guest is Klondike. He is a really sweet kitty. He has been hanging in Em's room getting first class care.
He is staying until Friday. Actually, I really like him and yes we keep singing the tune.."what would you do for a Klondike bar." Remember that one?
Kevin the beagle has just been dropped off this evening. He gets to stay until Sunday. He is a sweet pup (year and a half). I think that there is going to be a danger of attachment with this guy!

It is really fun to watch Emily organize these animals and plan their care. She is doing an amazing job! The boys (esp. Andrew) are getting into the spirit of it too.

There is talk of a Mastiff needing a babysitter...
What do you think?
In case you are keeping track.. household animal count this week: 2 cats, 2 dogs and a snake

Honestly, I really didn't think anyone would call. I am so glad that this business has been a success though! Emily is LOVING it!

I love that this is taking off!! If we come over, will Emily take care of me? All I need is for her to refill my water dish and keep me supplied with snacks. I'll pay her 50 cents a day! :-D

Lori said...

Get in line Louise. I might be a little more "high maintenance", but I'm willing to pay a dollar a day.

Seriously, Mom of the Year Award! Can my kids come to your house and help pet sit to get it out of their system??
