It was Soooo Worth It !

A Very Sleepy Calliope Snow….

It is still really hot here in the always sunny state of Florida. Waaaaaay too hot !!! As I have mentioned before, heat and M.S. do not mix well. Fatigue is a lot worse when you get overheated….etc. ….etc.

I want to walk my dogs everyday but after work I am just waaaay too tired. I finally decided that I need help taking the pups out for walks. If I try to walk all three together they tie themselves up in their leashes, pull me in every direction, and just don’t listen. If I walk them one at a time it takes about 2 hours to get everyone taken care of. I just don’t have that much free time.

I mentioned my dilemma at work and someone suggested hiring a dog walker. I looked into it and it can be very expensive, especially for multiple dogs. I cannot afford that. The same person said I should ask another mom I work with if any of her children would like to help with my furry monsters. What an amazing idea !!!!

So I asked the other mom “Do you think one or two of your almost adult sized offspring would be interested in getting paid to help me walk my dogs?” Yaaaaaay……as least One of those soon to be adults wants to walk the dogs with me.

So, 3 days a week I will be paying one or two kids to help me walk the dogs. It will be money WELL spent and will be totally worth it. Dad dropped the kids off this afternoon and I brought them in to meet the pups, hoping that they would get off on the right foot. After about 3 minutes of the dogs being unsure of newbies in their house, everyone was calm and happy. Yaaaaaay,they got leashed and we went outside.

They had about a 40 minute walk and fell right asleep when they got back. The picture shows just how CUTE my sweet ‘Ca-Lee Lee Poot Poot the Lilliputian’ is. The walk tired her out but good. She has been out for over an hour and a half. 🙂 🙂 Grimm has been passed out on mom and dads bed, and Poe has taken a few 15 minute cat naps in his crate. The pups are happy, so I am happy.

I am looking forward to our upcoming doggie walks. I also enjoyed talking to Miss Reagan and Mr. Raven. Teenagers are always interesting.

Have a great night.

I am the first child of 5. 2 of those siblings are half sisters and 2 are half brothers. I have 2 adult children and 3 dogs. CRAZY, CRAZY dogs. I obsessively collect orchids. Not really pretty orchids.....I feel bad for the sickly orchids you see at your local grocery store or gas station. I get those and try to nurse them back to health. UGGH, I am a glutton for punishment.
