The Dog Sitter made us both smile

Going on vacation and figuring out what to do with your animals is difficult for any family.  Having the confidence in your dog sitter is especially gratifying!.  I have a dog sitter friend too and she really enjoys being with the animals.

Last week, my husband and I went on a short vacation to Charleston, SC to visit his two sisters.  Then on to Myrtle Beach to visit a friend.  We have never left Zeke, our chocolate lab,  for more than two days.  Once we left him at the kennel for three days and he ripped his bed to shreds.  So, I was hesitant to leave him at the kennel.    

My friend’s daughter, Marietta Chaney, is a dog sitter.  After talking with her, and seeing that Zeke liked her, we decided to leave Zeke in the house and she would stop by four times a day.   Since we have never left him in the house alone, I was somewhat apprehensive about this situation,  and had to hold the tears back.

The house sitter, was so sweet. I would call to check on him and she said he was doing she sends me the below photo... which made me smile.  

Zeke, our happy dog smiling

Zeke seemed to be smiling at me saying not to worry mom, having a good time!

Marietta’s schedule for Zeke:

  • 8:00 AM -  feed and play with Zeke before going to work (She was less than a mile from work);
  • 12 noon -  had lunch on the patio and played with him for an hour
  • 4:30 PM - after work she stopped in to feed him and walk him; and
  • 8:00 PM  - walk and  play with him for an hour.  

On Saturday, Marietta took him on a 3 mile walk on the Greenbrier RIver Trail and let him play in the river.  

On Sunday, again a walk on the Greenbrier River Trail for a 5-mile walk and play in the river.  

Zeke had a great time with Marietta and we will surely use her again and again and again.....She makes Zeke and I both smile!  

I highly recommend Marietta she is fabulous and definitely great with animals!
