Dogsitting Adventures – Day 2


.. and the laying around continues. Day 2 of dogsitting was good. I acted like an adult by making a real breakfast and going outside. WHAT. I know, crazy.

I woke up and made a real breakfast. Like in a pan. I was going to make scrambled eggs, but then I found this omelette egg flipper thingy in my mom’s cupboard, so I decided to try it out. I will now be stealing it for myself.


Look how good and not runny that omelette looks? Also, I ate fruit. Not the kind from a can.


Then I brought Zoe back home midday while running some errands, and Buddy thanked me immensely. She has a thing for him and refuses to take the hint that he just barely puts up with her. I came back to this excited face when I returned without her.


These little monsters then proceeded to force me into going outside. So I brought my work out there.


I procrastinated for a solid 20 minutes taking pictures of random plants.


Then I did actual work.


Buddy kept coming over and sitting by me, looking at my computer. Making sure I stay motivated.


Tula isn’t as motivating.


Neither is Panda.


Missy was nowhere to be found, while Panda and Tula played a fun game of, “Hi. What are you doing? Play? Get up. Let me up. Pick me up. Hi. Hello. Hi. Jenn. Jenn. Jenn. Hi. What are you doing?”


Nap time!


JENN. Look. Look at us.


We’re tired. Stop working.


That about sums up day 2. It was exhausting. I need a nap.


Dogsitting Adventures – Day 1


This isn’t the first time I have housesat (this seems like not a word) and watched my parent’s 4 dogs, but it’s the first time I have documented it. As you can see, it’s super adventurous and every minute something new happens. For example, Tula, her toy poodle, was sitting on the far right side of the sectional, and now she is sitting on my left. It’s like you never know what is going to happen next.


I have already learned so much since being here, and it’s only the first day. I’m still afraid of the dark, commercials rarely advertise products anymore, and Internet puns have become a virus that has infected television.

Aside from that, I’m getting a lot of work done since I don’t hear garbage trucks, assholes on the loudest motorcycles known to man, and children screaming bloody murder, like I do at home.

Here are some highlights from Day 1 of Dogsitting:

My mom has a bunch of leftover desserts from Christmas and New Years that she needs gone before she gets back. Challenge accepted.


I brought the dogs inside almost immediately after my parents left. We all took a nap on the couch.


Me and Panda had some bonding time.


Tula moved from the couch to the ground.


Buddy was there.


I tried the Pecan pie.


And the cheesecake.


Then I worked and finished off the cheesecake.


Missy and Tula cuddled more.


I brought Zoe (one of my dogs, Tula’s baby and from Missy and Panda’s litter) over. She photobombed her own picture.


And wait for it.. this time it was Zoe and Tula sleeping. This shit is crazy.


We decided to take a break from napping and go outside.


Then I actually did work for 4 hours and slept on a couch with 4 dogs. It’s about as amazing as it sounds. I know you’re on the edge of your seat wondering what day 2 is like.. but you have to wait until tomorrow. There are eggs.
