It's with mixed feelings that I start today. Harvey the labrador has been with us for three weeks or so and has really become part of the family. We've settled beautifully into a routine of walks, training reinforcement but mainly of eating and sleeping, interspersed with his unique communication method, which sounds like Chewbacca! It will certainly be very quiet without him. However, it will be good to have a chance to catch up on housework other than chasing black dog hair with the hoover, and being able to go out again for more than a couple of hours. With half term starting now, Vale Pet Sitters has several clients who are away this week in addition to the weekly scheduled dog walks, so we also have a bit more variety this week with cats & horses added to the list of animals to be cared for. Meanwhile, once Harvey goes home I think it will be time for a well deserved day off and a catch up with friends at Cowbridge Food & Drink Festival, followed by South Wales Dog & Family Fun Day on bank holiday Monday. Maybe see you there.
