The dog

So the dog is coming on Saturday for a two-week trial.  Today we had a yard inspection to see if we had a suitable home for her.  We've already filled in a long form that asked details such as our vet's number, previous pet experience, plans for the dog's sleeping arrangements and our fencing height and type.  Our mother's maiden names were not required (but only just).  You can't just roll up and pick a dog off the internet these days!

Tonight I bought a collar and lead.  Tomorrow I'm buying a dog kennel and food.  It's all getting a bit exciting.

Very exciting...hope the shopping goes well! I'd recommend the cheapest brand of dog food if you can get away with it....

Did you get you "working with dogs" check? What about future dogsitters?

Hee, hee! Yes, it was certainly an extensive process. It's a wonder they didn't ask for a criminal history check. And all of that before we'd even seen the dog!
