It’s Only Tuesday? A Day in the Life

Monday was a hectic day for me. For those wondering what I’m doing with my life as a new pet sitter/dog walker here’s a little example of my Monday schedule.

7 AM: Wake up in neigbor’s house to two hound dogs clawing at door whining at me to wake up. (If I let them in my room, we’d be up at 4:30 AM, or so I was told.)

7:10: Let them out to pee in small side garden. Hose down pee.

7:20: Begin hour walk around the neighborhood. Poop bags and strong command voice in tow.

8:30: Quick shower/change/computer time/breakfast.

9:30: Leave to pick up dog at her house in Beverly Hills for Runyon Canyon hike.

10:30: Runyon Canyon hike.

11:30: Bring dog back to her BH home.

12 PM: Walk doggie #1 in Culver City.

12:45: Walk doggie #2 in Culver City.

1:30: Return to neighbor’s house. Walk hound dogs around the block. Pray for no scooters and skateboards.

2: Walk my top rascal Agnes B. around the block. Hang out with her, have lunch.

2:45: Depart for client pick-up.

3-7: Help Mar Vista family and their many animals (chickens, rabbits, puppies, birds, turtoise, etc.)

4:45: Fed my first chickens and picked up my first three freshly-hatched eggs.

6:00: Saw my first three chickens roosting.

7:30: Hound dogs get dinner/walk.

8: Visit my family and give them all hugs for 30 seconds.

8:00:30: Couch with the hound dogs.

10:30: Hound dogs evening stroll.

    Wow I knew you’d moved back West but I wasn’t aware of your career change. Good luck with the book writing. I hope you find a publisher soon.
