hubby got enough from son as it is. like we would have done it on purpose. they were given a nice trip to alaska by daughter-in-laws boss so as her mother does NOT want him at their lovely clean house, we got to keep him.
he is a cheweeny and way to fat. i encouraged them to get him to lose weight and told about my old dog.
well since i was down with foot, i did not want to keep him but hubby promised to do the taking out etc. unfortunately he did get into rat poision. he is alright now and we paid the vet bills. but grandaughter heard the chewing out son gave her pappy and came inside the house saying she hated uncle j. he laid it on heavy seems like.
well like i said, bad foot, not thinking of much else and not able to clean house. how was i to know little dog would get into everything? last time we kept him he acted sad when he went home last year when they went on vacation with the sil's family, her mother. dudh... and now they will think same thing happened last year. hubby told dil about it, unfortunately i did not hear hubby when he told me. or i would have insisted he take him THEN.
have i mentioned hubby talks like he mumbles, well he does and with my ears, he never learns so i just usually miss everything he says anyway.
he is okay now and has one return visit and pills to take. we took him ourself and returned him to their house.
i sure hope they will not ask us again. i wanted to say no this time as foot was really bad at first (still is) and i know foot is taking its sweet time to heal so house will not improve in the meantime nor will back hip, breast pain from scoliosis stenosis improve wheeling myself around on knee wheeler.
i am glad he is way better, little chubby thing is cute as can be, still chubby enough tho. we call him our grandpuppy. mind you daughter has a boxer but we don't call him that at all.
i wanted to tell this in case anyone else gets job of pet sitting and they are as bad off as i am to even try to do house cleaning. i say her mother gets him from now on myself. i don't want the responsibility. i don't think we will be asked tho. can't blame them i just hated the way hubby looked when he came inside and all the days there after.
