Nobody to dogsit...

My dog usually sleeps in the suroom which has access to the backyard. Was thinking of letting her stay there for 3 days (with ouside access of course, the TV and plenty of food & water)

Has anybody left a 10 months old alone for so long  Huh

                                 ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!!!


Surely you have a friend or neighbor that can at least stop by a couple of times a day.  Or, contact your vet.  They may know of a dog sitter or recommended kennel.

Dude, you can't do that... dogs require some companionship.

Find a kennel for them to stay at for a few days, they'll be happier and so will you. (You won't come back and find shit all fucked up)

  that's better but only slightly.     An ex girlfriend will check on her but the current girlfriend won't?     

   There is no one that can even check in once Thursday night/Friday morning?

Check online or at vets for a dog sitter. They will come to your house for like a 1/2 hour or so and feed and let her out.  Sometimes vet techs will do it on the side. They will usually bring your mail/newspapers in too.

  It seems like pets will chose to get sick/hurt when you are out of town, I'd hate to hear she got into something and hurt and no one was around.

I won't leave a dog unattended no more than half a day.  A cat is a different story.  For example...my cat...she doesn't care if I'm coming or going.  I've gone days w/o seeing her coming out of her hole.  She's a loner of sorts.

When I was a kid...we had to go out of town all day & came home LATE at night (can't remember where we went).  Anyways...we had 4 Labs that we 'thought' would be ok.

NOT

It was apprx 18 hours we were gone & the neighbor checked in on them in the afternoon (fed & took out).  They were probably just sitting there for about 6-8 hours unattended....got bored....& ripped up the kitchen floor, chewed half of the door to the basement, got over the barrier we put up & ate about half of my toys that I had in my toy box...chewed the leg off the rocking chair.....ate a few pair of shoes....(there's more...but you get the point).

On a side note which was funny....they didn't pee or shit in the house....go figure.

You're in my boat... just moved, no friends... It sucks.

I didn't really have any friends before I moved either though now that I think about it... hmm.
