Today is the start of an eight day stint of dog and cat watching for my sister’s brood.  It is strenuous and complicated separate feeding areas and food but no meds to be administered this time.  Joy!  Because it is so hot, I’ll get to water as well as bring in the mail and don’t forget the giving of treats.  The three dogs weigh over 150 lbs and one cat is very old and decrepit while the other is just a punk kitten.  I sigh…..
