I'M A WORKING WOMAN...GONE TO THE DOGS


Guess who got a job? Moi.  I interviewed yesterday at The Watering Bowl (TWB), a doggy daycare and boarding facility, and was hired on the spot. My friend Donna knows the owner. They had 78 (78!!) dogs running around. When I walked into the yard, all 78 of them came up to me and either sniffed me or jumped on me. It was so funny. There were two Great Danes, a mom and son, who were as big as horses. They had every kind of dog you could imagine...Bull Dogs and Dachshunds and Chihuahuas and Golden Retrievers and Pit Bulls! I think I'm going to love it.

WHO let the dogs out: Me! Me me me me me...meeeee!

WHAT I'll do:  Walk around while the dogs play, monitor them and prevent play from getting too rough, give baths to dogs whose owners want them cleaned before picking them up, check dogs in and out at front desk, feed dogs who need to be fed three times a day, clean poop and pee from yard, take pictures (at least two of each dog) and post on TWB Facebook page.

WHERE:  In South County - about 20 minutes away without traffic. Could be 30 or 40 with traffic. They're opening a new place in Brentwood in three or four weeks, so hopefully I'll get to work there since it's closer to me.

WHY I got a job:  Eric just started college, so I need to at least help him pay for it. He'll have to get a loan if he doesn't end up getting a basketball scholarship. Jason was accepted yesterday into Washington University School of Business Master's program...and it is not cheap. My tuition reimbursement from Wash U. would have come in handy just about now :(  Too bad I quit.

WHEN:  I start tomorrow 1:30-8:30. I told him I only want to work part-time, but I think it's going to be between 25-30 hours a week.


HOW much: $8/hour (brutal) and  HOW am I going to go on vacation with Larry and go on our cross-country motorcycle ride and go to Lake of the Ozarks with friends and spend the winters in Florida:  Win Powerball.
