Notes to the Dog Sitter


With the next few weeks especially busy I started texting notes to the dog sitter.  After about the 4th text message I realized it might be better to just write her a note instead…

Dear Jill,

Riley and Bailey are SO excited to see you!!  You can just stop over and let them out to go to the bathroom, but if you want to walk them go for it!  Rufus has a new harness and it is blue.  Bailey has the red harness.  As usual Riley has no harness!

Rufus is still working on his anxiety and greeting people properly.  I am going to mention your name 20+ times this week to remind him that he Loves Jill!  Just in case he forgets when you come on the porch just open the door and then let him come out to you.  You probably should say “Hi Rufus It’s Jill” like 3 or 4 times and be “really excited.”  It will sooth him if your tone is happy and relaxed.  You might want to keep your hands at your waist.  If you have them raised it can scare him.  Oh and if he is really excited he might jump up to hug you so brace yourself.  He has gained a few pounds.  Once he is out back you might have a hard time getting him back inside.  Just grab a few treats and lure him back in.  Don’t touch his collar.  Don’t go to the house around 4pm.  The mailman is there and it is just pure chaos.   If he seems a little odd don’t worry about it.  He ate some raw chicken…long story…vet said no worries!  If you have any problems just call me!  Have Fun!   xoxo
