George - our cover dog! A 4-year old yellow lab. He was the one who actually got us into this business. Somehow, Facebook, probably, I renewed an old friendship (from over 30 years ago), and we tested out minding 1 dog (George), 2 cats and 3 ducks in a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. No mobile reception, and the landline went on the blink. Idyllic! George took us under his wing (sorry, that was the ducks), and took us lovely walks all over the hills, and even better (when it wasn't too muddy) in the valleys.
We're looking forward to spending a month with him next time!
