House-Sitting with Daphne the Wonder Dog

Meet Daphne the Wonder Dog ~

We had the pleasure of spending ten days with this sweet girl on our most recent house sit.  One of the true joys of being house sitters is bonding with the animals in your care.  Everyone is a little nervous and unsure at first…but I find that getting down to eye level and having a good chat about who you are and why you are there goes a long way to quickly making friends.  A treat or two never hurts either.

Daphne is a mama’s girl and she and I bonded pretty quickly.  We took morning strolls around the yard, played hours of toss and fetch.  Stretched out on the couch to watch the Ellen show together each afternoon and even watched the Westminster Dog Show.  Daphne barked at every dog as they crossed the screen.IMG_2066

Smart as a whip and with more toys than your average two year old child, Daphne joyfully shared her home with us.  Last night I had a message from the lovely folks who are Daphne’s humans.  They called to thank us for making it so easy for them to enjoy their vacation time away and to say that Daphne missed me.  How sweet is that!

This is the view that we woke up to every morning.  Not too shabby.
