    Default Bullysitting rant/vent

    Ok so hubby's friend and his girlfriend have a 10 year old female bully. I got suckered into bullysitting her so they could go to FL...don't mind bullysitting the old gal but pissed at other things. First off I was told that they needed me to bullysit her from Wed to Sunday. When we go pick her up hubby's friend says that they will see us Tuesday night...umm what happened to Sunday? In prior conversations I was also never told that she is food and water aggressive. Normally I leave Raven's and the cat's food and water down all day and they graze as they see fit. We ended up having to go pick her up because they were running behind. They gave me all her stuff yet never bother to tell me how much she eats. Ooh here is the thing that bothers me the most...not once since they left Wed have they even texted me to ask how she was. I had to text the chick twice to find out just how much her baby eats. How can someone have a dog for that long and not worry. This is the first time they ever left her with us. Matter of fact I had to force her to at least come by the day before with the dog so she could get used to Raven and April (our cat). I feel like they didn't care and were just happy to run off.

    Sorry for the rant but I know when I left my baby for the day with my dad to go to Dorney Park with my kids I called my dad twice to see how she was and I gave him explicit instructions of her likes/dislikes and her feeding habits/schedule. It makes me mad that they aren't even thinking about the little old gal.

    I just ranted something similar yesterday LOL. People are careless and don't think of their pets like family.

    I just don't get it. I guess out of sight out of mind for her. When we brought her home she was just sitting and crying. I had told them to try and bring her by a few times before they had to leave her that way she would get used to my house. The only place she will go is into our basement. I figured that is because when they came over that one time for the quick visit that is where I had gone to get some laundry so it was where she and her owner had also followed me. I tried to get her to go all over the house with me but no way no how. Makes me sad because I have no intention of keeping her in one area. My house is an open land to the pets. At least the basement is finished and comfy so she should be ok.

    Good grief... some people?!! When I leave my dogs, they are usually sat by my good friend (who happens to be a vet tech) anyhoo I always type out food instructions, phone numbers, etc... so that way if I forgot to mention something she will have it right with her to reference. I always call/text daily to see how things are going... I'm surprised that bully has lived to be 10 years old!!!

    Tracey me too. I guess partying in FL is more important than the well being of her little senior citizen. I feel so bad when I look at her because she puts the saddest face. At least she is comfy. In my house she is allowed on the rugs and stuff. The basement is where my eldest daughter has made her new bedroom so there is a nice plus shag type rug down there. The dog was shocked when I let her lay on it. In their house, she is not allowed on the furniture or the area rugs. Pssh I don't buy anything that isn't kid friendly. I have a house with animals and children so it all has to be comfy and easy to clean.

    I don't expect to have things stay pristine or a totally clean house. I used to be really crazy about keeping things constantly clean, then along came the kids. I know there is only so much I can do, so I do my best, and hey if there is a mess here and there then so be it. I also know for a fact that it's crazy to think you can keep a house looking like a museum.

    I can be rather picky about the kitchen & bathrooms... but other than that I could really careless!!! My kids are older, so I make them clean up the only trouble I have is my 2 year old grandson & then of course Winston... BOY can they do a number on the living room!!! LOL

    Kitchen and bathroom have to be clean. I am used to Raven emptying her toy boy and leaving a trail around the house. My skin kids, ages 17, 14 and 9, make their own kinds of messes but they are not bad. So all in all I can't complain too much. Now when they were younger it was brutal with the spills and other craziness they could get up into.

    Beth, could it be they just felt comfortable enough leaving the dog with you because you are familiar with the breed? Enough playing devil's advocate, that's really messed up!

    A friend of mine who has a bully left his dog with his brother when he went to FL a few weeks ago and the dog was acting strange and sick when he got back. He is back to normal after a few vet visits but needless to say, he told me he wants to leave Mr. Belvedere with me next time he travels because he is comfortable of my knowledge of the breed plus he gets along very well with Rocco!
