We are official dogsitting for some of our neighbors! It is really cool because I get paid a bit and I haven't been able to do that since I had Abi and decided to stay home to raise children 7 years ago! The kids LOVE it! Aaron would really love to have his own dog so this is especially nice for him. Our new charge is, Munchee, an affectionate dachshund. Munchee's owner is out of town 3 days a week. He gets along fine with Miguel - although I think Migsy could really rather do without him being around at all.
Another dog that we watch sometimes is Gigi! She is a tiny 3lb, 3 month old Chua Chua. We took her trick or treating with us which was fun. She is not really leash trained yet - pulls this way and that so it is interesting to take her out.
All the dog watching has gotten us off the boat quite a bit and out walking. Great exercise for me. We took Munchee hiking with us.
In addition to the dogs we look after, there are 9 other dogs in this marina and the kids have enjoyed passing out bones to all of them whenever we have some left over from stew or casserole.
Maybe we can offer our dog walking services in the Caribbean! A lot of people have dogs on boats that need walking.
