If we go on this military hop next month, we will need a new place for our dogs to stay while we’re gone. When we lived in North Carolina, we used Sandhills Pet Resort, which was a great place for them. The people who worked there took great care of our dogs.
Now that we’re in Texas, we have several places to choose from. I have sort of narrowed it down to two places. One is Four Paws Inn, which is near where we live and economical. The other place is Camp Bow Wow, which is a franchised place. It’s more expensive, but appears to be more comfortable. It’s also near the airport, which may be a good thing if we stay here, because I don’t think we’re going to keep living where we live right now. But we will always be going to the airport, right?
I’m actually feeling kind of nervous about leaving them, even though they usually do fine when we board them. Mother-in-law has offered to take care of them, but I think that may be a tough thing for her to handle. She has told us she plans to quit her job, since they have pretty much told her they want her to quit and she’s not making much money there anyway.
Really, all she would have to do is let them go out, feed them, clean up after them, and make sure they don’t run out the front door or counter surf something dangerous. But she lives on the other side of the city and has her own cats to take care of.
I really want to take a trip, but I don’t feel ready to go anywhere yet. I’d rather put the dogs in a kennel for a brief stay before I leave them in a new one for a couple of weeks.
