pet sitting :)

Been a busy week and of course i didn't get any posting done -- the video i attached.....well i couldn't figure out how to comment once i posted it other than as a comment......Bingo (blonde), Boscoe (black) and Ozzy (collie) playing in the park -- its short and sweet for a change.  I finished up Sami the kitty that never came out from under the bed so no pictures of her,  Chloe went home Wednesday and i only had Boscoe for two days.  Yesterday i started taking care of Sunny and Shadow but wasn't able to get very good pictures this morning......Life is pretty good for the moment!!!!

i gotta remember to keep posting!

i get so caught up in the mundane parts of my day, i forget to post unless i have a picture to attach.  i guess i can always attach old pictures, can't i?  so much going on these days -- i got new pet sitting clients and i am SO stoked about that.  today was my last day to take care of Sami the cat -- her mom comes back tonight -- Sami didn't want to have anything to do with me all week so i have no pictures.  i hope to have pictures to post tomorrow sometime of Bingo and Boyla -- and Bosco and his family -- everyone is going to love those pictures!!!!  -- and then thursday, hopefully Sunny and Shadow will allow me to take some pictures of them.  Would be TOO cool if i had this much pet sitting going on every day of the week :)  so just to give you something to look at :

Bonnie Collie

My sweet senior girl.......she doesn't hear me sneaking up on her with the camera any more....Ozzy had knocked Sponge Bob off the daybed so Bonnie took full advantage.

Counting down to San Francisco!!

Ok i got it altogether mostly  -- have to do the  yard and poop patrol and pack but the toes done and plenty of food and litter for the critters.....and The Car. Wow -- a 2010 Dodge Avenger with NINE miles on it when i picked it up :)
 This is my Vietnamese friend, Tanh, who does my pedicures -- haven't had one in at least 1 1/2 years and figured i could not walk on the beach along the Pacific with ugly toes :)
 After the pedicure, Ozzy and I went to Healthy Tails, our favorite dog store for extra food -- just in case -- and then to PetsMart for kitty litter -- shhhhh don't tell the cats that the dogs get special food from a special store :) 
 I can't wait to get to San Francisco and take pictures!!!!

San Francisco!!!

believe it or not......i'm going away for the weekend!!  i haven't had a weekend off since December, 2008, and have the chance to go to San Francisco with a girlfriend.  SF is my favorite spot in the world :)  so i'm going to miss the saturday blog hop.....and reading and posting unless i can figure out how to do this from my iPhone.  have a great weekend!!!

Pet Sitting the Ferret boys

This was my first experience with ferrets.  they are quite playful and inquisitive.  I was also able to capture them at play on video which i hope will link from youtube.  Here's the boys -- Al and Oscar:

Bath time

The Pinkston girls got bathed today.  They both have severe allergies and end up with an oily, yeasty, greasy feel to their coats.  Their skin gets very dry yet their fur feels oily and has an odd smell to it.  Normally I have Jason work his magic on them, but i just can't afford it right bathed them myself.  They protest and tell me they hate it, but i think they are happy with the result -- even though they did NOT want their pictures taken.  Pistol is the blue; Bonnie Lass, the sable.

fireworks 07-04-10

well this was pretty disappointing.....these fireworks were from Sparks which has to be at least five miles from where i was parked.  maybe further. and i caught them between two buildings -- the green one on the right of every picture is the Silver Legacy, which was the building that kept me from getting a clear shot of the Reno fireworks. Certainly nothing to write home about but interesting i guess. Imagine what a person could do with a really good camera OR if they knew how to use a camera!!!
