I have to admit, I was a little bit nervous when I asked my father to watch the dog for us when we went on vacation.
My dog is a lazy basset hound and she’s really not that much work.
I worried because my father was never the child-rearing type. He spent all of his days out on the road as a trucker when I was a kid and Mom raised us pretty much single-handedly. But mom has passed on, and dad really does love Bailey. So, I decided to see how he would do. I was already worried by the time my husband and I got to the airport. I started texting my dad and he started responding with pictures of Bailey just relaxing over his air conditioner vent. The air conditioner vents at our house or up on the wall. But at my dad’s house, the vents are on the floor. Apparently Bailey really liked laying on the vent because for the whole week my dad watched her, he sent me nothing but pictures of Bailey laying on different vets throughout the house. There were pictures of her on the vents in the kitchen, pictures with her on the vents in the bedroom, then others with her on the vents in the hallway. Needless to say, my dad took good care of Bailey and I think she had a good time just chilling out on top of his air conditioner vents. My husband and I are already planning another trip in the winter. When that happens, I’m going to leave Bailey with my dad again. I wonder if she’ll like the heater vent just as much as the air conditioner vents.
