If I haven't formally introduced you yet, this is Jameson. My rambunctious, sensitive, sweet, handsome Boston Terrier. At just over three years old, he's stolen both Josh and my heart since the minute we got him. For many reasons. The intensive cuddling, the endearing snores, and I mean, THAT FACE.
With all the traveling I've been doing and Josh's intense work schedule, not to mention us not living together at this time (short-long distance sucks!), we were adamant about getting in some quality time. A frustrating thing about having a pet is that while you want to take them on vacations, hotels generally aren't accomodating. Factor in flights and all that jazz, and it's just impossible. We generally rely on his parents or my little sister to take care of Jameson while we're away. They do a wonderful job, but sometimes we don't want to inconvenience them.
I caught news of Dog Vacay, a website and app that makes finding great pet sitters as simple as AirBnB. Pet owners can search for pet sitters nearby, book stays and pay online, all with just a couple clicks. The reservation included free pet insurance, around the clock customer service, and daily photo 'pup' dates! I was able to browse several hosts around my area and found someone who was flexible and could stay with Jameson at my home, an important factor for me because he does best in his own environment. Once our reservation was booked, we arranged a meeting so Jameson could meet his new friend. She was delightful and immediately put Jameson, and more importantly my paranoid mind, at ease. During our trip, we received daily 'pup'dates, or pictures, of what Jameson was up to and came home to a happy puppy. It was an overall great experience!
