We don’t have kids…

that doesn’t mean we don’t have babies!  We have two, ages nearly 11 (in 2 weeks) and 9 yrs.

Internet, meet “The Girls”…

There’s our oldest (she’s a “Prissy Pup” even if she’s giving the camera her grumpus face in this pic)…

and her baby sister (she’s more of a “Sporty Pup” but is SO cuddly when she’s sleepy)…

Of course, we try to take them with us whenever we can.  But sometimes mean ol’ hotels and resorts say “Pups Aren’t Allowed.”  So, what do we do with these pretty girls when we are on the road and they can’t come too?  We let Michalle from Gopher Dogs look after them for us.

We’ve been using Michalle’s services for over a year now and can’t be happier.  She comes three times a day to feed them, walk them, and play with them.  The Girls are much more relaxed than if they were boarded.  Beer Guy works from home, so he usually walks them in the middle of the day.  But when he travels, I’ll have Michalle come take them for a mid-day walk, just to make sure I don’t have any surprises when I get home! 🙂

The price for Michalle’s pet sitting services is about the same as if we boarded them,  but the difference in finding them waiting nervous and expectantly for us like this…

or chillaxin’ such that we get all the way up to the third floor before they realize we back in the house like this…

is priceless!

(Please pay no attention to the ugly, undecorated office complete with dying plant…just the cute pups cuddling on the ugly old couch. The rest of the rooms in our house are much prettier, I promise!)

So if you are in the Queen City or the surrounding area and looking for a pet sitter, we highly recommend Gopher Dogs! Thanks, Michalle, from us AND The Girls.

    I’m to blame for the office decor.
    WineGirl has done such a beautiful job with the rest of the rooms … But don’t my co-workers look comfortable?
