My mom and stepdad decided to take a little vacation for the weekend down to Miami. She asked one of the neighbors to watch my animals, which made me a bit nervous. Ever since Missy died, I have been a bit on the high anxiety side when it comes to taking care of Ginnie and Bun. I felt comfortable with leaving the girls while I went gallivanting off to Europe because I how much my mom and stepdad love and care for the girls as much as I do. So, when my mom alerted me that she had requested her neighbor watch the girls, I was a bit nervous. My mom was one step ahead of me and had typed up instructions for him, before I even had to ask her – is she awesome or what?! Of course she is, she is MY MOM! Anyway – she sent them over to me for approval, I almost peed myself laughing (and also realize that I am a wee bit of a control freak), but I thought I would share them with you – because I think they are utterly adorable (my comments are in italics):
Ginnie goes out – (Laura says she must poop before breakfast). Because I am a control freak and an a-hole. THEN 1 scoop of food – bowl is in dining room<
Bun – 1 scoop of food – bowl is behind table in kitchen
Minnie – 1 scoop of food – bowl is on deck – she does bad things in the house so she can only come in if you watch her non-stop. I am guessing she stayed out the whole time, and by bad things – she sprays! She is fixed, she is female and she sprays?! WTF?
Ginnie goes out. She might pee, she might not, mostly she will just chase frogs!
6 pm – and I am pretty sure they can all tell time!! This is true! You don’t need a clock, they come find you and tell you that it is dinner time all on their own – animals get so little credit for their brilliance.
Ginnie goes out. She gets 1 scoop of food.
Bun gets 1 spoon of food in fridge.
Minnie gets 1 scoop.
9 pm or so – Ginnie goes out.
* If it is wet out, Ginnie will act like you have beat her!!! She is such a princess.
** These are “Mom rules” – otherwise, if J wrote the rules, he would make them go into their rooms at night. They NEVER go into their rooms if we are here alone!!!! Good thing J isn’t reading this huh? Don’t tell him.
