This week begins one of my busiest dogwalking times.
A fellow dogwalker is out of town for the week. She asked me to walk her dogs while away. It was a great reflection actually. She said she sees how I am with my dogs and that's how she wants her dogs to be treated. Felt really good to see how I'm perceived in my work.
Another dogwalker is going on her honeymoon at the end of this week and I'll have one of her dogs in our group too. [the biggest dog I've ever met] I've had him before so I know him a little better than the few extras I have this week.
Actually, it was because of these two dogwalkers that I took my SloMo trip early in the month. They filled in for me. Now I'm filling in for them.
I thought once I left the 8-5 world, I wouldn't have to check in with anyone regarding vacations and sick leave. But nope. It's basically the same. The difference is, I like it. We care about our work. We care about our charges. We care about each other. This will come in real handy when I take my trip to the east coast this fall.
Unfortunately, this business is not without its own share of drama too. But I won't bore you with those details...yet. [oooh, and they're so good too!]
More later. Off and running. Well, more like dragging. I forgot to mention I couldn't sleep yesterday so I rearranged my entire room. Finally, it's back to the way it originally was.
:::yawn::: Oh right, gotta stop for coffee too.
