OMG, we are a RESCUE, not a dogsitting service

Really, this is one of the things that irritates me the most.  People calling with some sob story (just had a baby, moved to an apartment that can't keep dogs, just got divorced, lost my job) that want us to watch their dog for FREE.  This isn't a freaking dog sitting service, it's a RESCUE.  We don't have facilities, we have volunteers who sacrifice a lot of their own money and lives and bust their butts raising money to take care of dogs who have no other chance, we're not a doggy daycare.  This guy just called me from Kansas who is moving to Florida and wants to send his 2 vizslas 3 months ahead of time because of a travel situation, and he wants to know if we can watch them for 3 months.  ARGH!

Vent over.

  • Seriously? I would have never thought of doing that. I'd tell him yes you can for $80 a night times 3 months! What an idiot.
  • So....now would be a bad time to ask if you could watch Ringo for a weekend cause we don't feel like getting up early to walk him?

  • People are so ridiculous. We get people that ask similar questions. I love the ones that say they need "to get rid of their dog ASAP" and "where are you located so I can just drop he/she off."
  • That's lovely.  I love the idea of raping their wallets, though. 

    And how have you been?  Have you had crazy blueberry cravings?  Because they were already pretty crazy.  I was wondering if your baby was going to come out a nice blueberry color.  :)
