30 Days of Thanks – Day 27

Working at a dog day care.  It's not for the weak.
Working at a dog day care. It’s not for the weak.

I was able to spend the day with Hubby at his job, managing a dog day care. Whew! It was exhausting, but worthwhile work, watching dogs of all ages, sizes and play styles interact with each other.  For some reason, I thought working with animals would be easier than working with children.  In some respects it was, but in many more, it was not.  Dogs cannot tell you if they are hurt or why they may be sad.  Two dogs that may be playing happily with each other, may, all of a sudden, become aggressive and the people have to be vigilant for any signs of behavior changes.  Hubby has the right instinct for this type of work.  I do not.  It has been an interesting day and I am ready to see my K9 pack of three.

    LOL oh they are too cute! And, whew, yeah working with animals is…interesting. lol I run an animal rescue and they do the craziest funniest things.

    We LOVE our doggie daycare. It’s so nice to know that when I’m out of town our pup (or multiples when we had others or fosters too) are safe and being cared for so well. Glad you had a good time!

      I’ve volunteered with animal rescues, but never had 15+ charges, all at the same time. It was INTENSE, but Hubby loves his work and I was there to pitch in on one of their busiest days. I ended up working the reception desk and doing paperwork. LOL
