Well, Day #1 of my dogsitting stay in Montreal is almost complete. And I am completely exhausted. I caught the second to last flight out of Toronto last night, got in a little after 9:00 p.m., woke up at 4:30 a.m. this morning to drive my sister to the airport, read for several hours, then headed over to mom’s for lunch – and an early afternoon of writing. I am ready for bed – and it isn’t even 6:00 p..m. yet.
Behold part of of lunch! Broccoli, rapini, crab mousse, beets, fried peppers, and eggplant.
So, in addition to the cat, Rapini, who stays downstairs most of the time and only comes up for the occasional pets, THESE TWO will be my roomies for the next little while…
Kona. Very sweet if not a little needy. Like nothing better than to sit by the window and incessantly bark at whoever, or whatever, happens by. When I let her out in the backyard, she will take up position on the highest snowbank and sit vigil, ignoring my calls for her to come back inside. She likes to sleep smack-dab in the middle of the bed.
Ralphie. High-strung and anxious. He also enjoys barking at passersby as well as bothering the cat. He needs to be forced out to do his business. At night, he’s a roamer, often circling the bed in search of the perfect cool spot. Bonus: He peed on my sister’s bed last night, so there’s something else to watch out for!
Alright. I’m off to watch old episodes of 30 Rock until I fall asleep. Hopefully before 10:00. Fingers crossed for a peaceful, urine-free night.
