Welcome, Bailey, to the World and to Teacher's Pet Sitting Service!

I'd like to introduce you to my newest weekly walking and play partner, Bailey, who is an 8 week old bloodhound who joined her new family this past Saturday! I met her on Sunday night and was instantly mesmerized by her long ears, droopy eyes, soft wrinkly fur, and big paws! 

Since she is being crated during the work week it is my job to visit her midday to give her a chance to feel the grass beneath her toes and to stretch her legs while also showing her where she is supposed to relieve herself. I'm also supposed to get her used to the leash and hopefully get her to take short walks! Everything is new to her so it will be my pleasure to introduce her to her new world! 

Isn't she cute?

Rest in Peace, Allie

It is with great sadness that I share that on Saturday I found out that my dear chocolate lab friend, Allie, passed away at a little over 14 years of age. She was suffering too much from old age and couldn't simply get around like she used to back in her prime. When I first met her in 2015 she was the sweetest girl then as she was when I last saw her last summer! I only had the pleasure of seeing her once a year when Dad went on vacation but they were good times filled with lots of downtown walks, neck and belly rubs, and plenty of treats that she kept begging for as I tried to get out the door! She was having a hard time moving those old legs last summer so I knew it wouldn't be long when her body would wear out so I am at peace that she's no longer walking on tired legs. Rest in peace, Allie. Daisy and I will miss you!
