Coming towards the end of 2019 we only have one more housesit to do before the end of the year and although it sometimes seems as if we are full-time sitters the figures don’t really bear that out. We will only have done 25 weeks of official housesits by the time we’re toasting in the New Year. Seems more doesn’t it?
By ‘official’ sits I mean ones booked via the TrustedHouseSitters website. We have looked after friends and family houses a few times but that’s a bit different. We often look back on previous sits and of course the pets that we got to care for and this is just a photo memory of the dogs that we have looked after in 2019. There have obviously been cats and ducks and budgies etc but it’s the dogs that take more time and really define our stays.
So with a special mention for our first sit of the year in Northamptonshire, where we looked after the wonderful Molly for a second time. Sadly Molly had a few health issues and was put to sleep recently which was tragically sad for Susan and Tim her owners and of course for us as we’d really got to know and love her over two long stays.
So fifteen lovable pooches so far this year with just one to go. All with unique personalities and differing likes and dislikes. We truly couldn’t say which was our favourite (we probably wouldn’t tell if we could) and although some were more work than others they were all a delight to care for.
With only a couple of housesits booked for next year so far who knows what lovely dogs we are yet to meet?
Do you have a favourite?
