New dog walker

| | Comments (0)

Hobie has a new dog walker.

Hobie's previous dog walker seemed good with Hobie, but not so good with us. We mailed her a month ahead of time that we'd be going on vacation. While we're gone, Gladys' brother who was dog-sitting left Hobie in our apartment for an afternoon. When he gets back, Hobie is gone.

Not surprisingly, he gets a little freaked out. Fortunately, the dog walker returns a couple of hours later, saying she didn't get the message. OK, fine. Spamfilters suck.

Then, the next week, another guy shows up at the door. Apparently, our dog walker is now on vacation, and her subsitute is ready to take Hobie for a walk. I guess she forgot to both tell us that she has a vacation replacement, and to tell him that Hobie is still on vacation.

When we get back, we try to get ahold of her, but she never picks up Hobie on his regular day. We decide that we've had enough, and tell the dog walker company that we'd like a new dog walker.

The new guy seems good. It's a guy, and Hobie seems to get along better with guys than girls, for some reason. It's the same person who took over for our old dog walker when she was on vacation, so he's already seen Hobie.

Hopefully this will last longer than a few months.
