    So I just sat down and realized that the kids will need to be boarded for 7 nights. Marty flies in late Wednesday night so she will pick them up on Thursday morning. I'm having a really hard time putting the boys in daycare for that long. I need a good dog sitter.... :-((((((

      what kind of dogs do you have? i have a lab and was able to find some contacts and dog sitters who love dogs through lab rescue.

        I have two dogs too (a yorkie and a dauschund). I am putting them in a pet resort/kennel (where they share a room together, have play time with other pets and several walks a day). They love it there and always come back really happy. There may be some near you.

          Leigh makes a good point, is there anyone you can talk to with the rescue group you work with?

            I'm the same way---- I hate the idea of paying so much to wind up with my dog sitting in a kennel most of the day. We've been fortunate because in most situations, we plan our vacations with the purpose of taking Raven with us everywhere. But about once a year, we wind up having my 20-something nephew crash at our place while we're gone and he takes care of her.

            I take my dogs to the Petshotel at Petsmart and they love it, lots of play time. But I understand I hate leaving them.

                Well you guys have to remember I have the older foster girl as well and a cat. I can't possibly ask someone to stay at my house and take care of four pets. Our foster dog is going to stay with someone we trust and also fosters for Boston Terriers. Still not sure about Morris, since everyone we know has a cat, and he has FIV we can't leave him, with them, and the other people we would consider lives too far. I'm debating about asking another women who does rescue work but she has 4 dogs and one foster dog.. yes that's right 5 dogs already so that would give her 7,, I would be affraid it would cause her to go insane.. lol

                  Tammy, I totally understand what you mean, as I was really stressed about this too. Honestly, I think I stressed more than the damn cats ever did. It kinda helped break them of some of their annoying habits (like begging for food EVERY time I walk by the kitchen) and I'm sure they got lots of love and naps while we were gone. I guess it's prob different wtih dogs but I realized when we got back that the cats had been just fine.
