Leap Day!

Isn't she cute. She is celebrating Leap Day today and has been playing with the frogs! Little does she know, she will be getting a bath soon. Auntie Dee is going to do it herself! Shhhh, don't tell Mama, it is a surprise!

We are off to play. I will write more later. But, everything is going smoothly as usual. (As long as I keep my hands off the alarm :-)

Dumb and Dumber

I am at Abbie's again. She is a great dog! But, I have to take both the 'dumb AND dumber' in this sit. Abbie is the smart one!
I set off my client's alarm today. Abbie lives in a very nice home, with an excellent alarm system. I have used MANY alarm systems, so I haven't quite figured out what my problem is! But, for the second time, I set it off again. I don't get it! Well, the sirens go off, the strobe light flashes and the phone immediately starts ringing. The alarm company now calls me the 'dumb pet-sitter'....I am sure of it!
We got through it, but not before I had to call Abbie's uncle and subsequently spoke with Abbie's mama and daddy before it was all done. Jeesshhhh....I really need to pay attention better.
Abbie and I have been together just 24 hours. She was SO excited to see me yesterday. I immediately took her for a long walk. We visited with Katie and Katja today and since it was a nice day, Abbie spent a long time outside. Friday we will hang out all day and go for a long walk again. Stay tuned for pictures......she saw my camera coming and went right into a pose! Who says dogs are camera shy? I'm sure she can't wait until I put her in those bunny ears. If dogs could talk.......
