Beware of Doug!

Services for Real Estate Pros with StoneHome Photo & Video

Last night I decided to clear my desktop and purge the trash and unused files/folders from my computer. Without fail, I delete more than I ever expect to on these routine purges. It's amazing how much useless junk accumulates on our computers. But, once in a while, I'll find something interesting that I've forgotten about. This time I came across a Far Side drawing I scanned years ago from one of those desk calendars. Coincidentally, and the reason I'm posting this here, in my real estate photography terms of service--that I have all clients sign before commencing work, I clearly state that I won't enter a property if dangerous animals are not safely restrained. Luckily, over the years of doing my photo and video tours, I haven't had the bad luck of coming across a dangerous "doug" on my shoot. So far they were all happy, friendly dougs... :)

Cute, wasn't sure what to expect from the title. I like it.

Good point. Some animals get quite upset if their territory is threatened by someone new.

I have to deal with 'Dougs' all the time LOL.

I always advise my clients about pet sitters, Doug going to grandmas and taking Doug with you when you leave for a viewing. Even if Doug is crated his whining or barking can put people off. The hardest ones to deal with are cats. They don't travel and there is always the danger of them escaping out the door and oh yes, the dreaded kitty litter box.
