Looking for A Sub-Contractor
This weekend I was looking forward to dogsitting a friend's dog. She's calm, well trained, and sweet. BUT, when you live in a country where 95% of the dogs look like this:
It's in French, but also translated in Malagasy, because I'm really not convinced our cleaning lady speaks French. Whenever I speak to her in French, she responds, "No problem" in English. This pretty much means that she has no idea what I said but has possibly figured out what I'm meaning to say with my actions.
Anyway, I came home on Friday evening to find LC, still in the room, with her bed and blanket all nicely folded, and I did not receive a screaming phone call from the cleaning lady about the vicious dog in our spare room.
Although I think we're boring poor LC, having a dog in the house this last weekend has been really nice. Both Sergio and I are tired. It's been a long rotation. A looooonnnnng rotation. So having a smiley, affectionate dog around has been a nice distraction. (Until Saturday night - she was having nightmares and woke us up with her yelping!!).
The only problem is that I KINDA forgot to ask when they were coming to pick up LC. I just assumed they meant Sunday...but they actually aren't coming back until Wednesday - and I don't know at what time. I'm flying outta the country on Wednesday, so I need to find a dogsitter for my dogsitting job. Any takers? She barely smells and doesn't bark.
(Oh, and it's a secret from Sergio that she was up on our bed. I don't see a problem with it....he thinks it's "gross" because she's "dirty". Pffff...French guys...)
