Some of you may remember me talking about my fourth of July plans that involve my family and me going to a "resort" where my dad's family meets up, and has been doing for 38 years! Well, I have two Chihuahuas, so I need someone to take care of them while I am gone for several days (July 2nd through 6th). I am leaving Sadie with one of my friends who runs a rescue. I am leaving Annabelle with a guy in my dad's church, and I feel good about him watching Annabelle. It's funny how he won't watch his brother's dog when his brother goes out of town, but he'll keep mine! When you go out of town, who watches your children or your pets? Certainly, people bring their kids with them when they travel, but adults need alone time too. When my parents would go out of town without my sister or me we'd stay with a couple at our church. What did you do, or what did your parents do?

Roomie will be doing cat duty while I am gone. I am leaving on the second as well. I will have to check in with him periodically though..because the cat was hiding under the bed when I got back last time and wouldn't come out. I will have to make sure he touches base with the cat everyday, and knows where he is when I get home, so I am not in panic mode.

I'm glad you have people to take care of your dogs. I went to a writer's conference in Minnesota many years ago. I needed to leave Rascal with someone. Now this person had cats, and my big bruising border collie was intimidated by that little cat. My friend said it was so funny to see him cowering under the table from the cat. This is Rascal.

The Virus has chewed up our vacation plans and spit them out. We are for sure staying home. Last year a friend of ours was unemployed so she appreciated the money we gave her for watering the gardens, caring for the dogs, cats and outside birds. Big job but she did well. And she got some ripe strawberries, too!

We have a housemaid who takes care of our 3 dogs when we go abroad. Sometimes we ask our laundrywoman to stay for company of our maid. For local trips, we try to find accommodation that allows pets so we can bring them along.
