I agreed to look after the neighbour's two dogs and two cats while she was away in the US of A for a fifteen-day holiday. This is not the first time I have sat on a pet - I have looked after a friend's hamster and guinea pigs before - but this is the first time I have sat on pets that didn't stay over at my house.
The two cats are proving elusive to photograph, but I have gotten a few photos of the dogs. This is Lady - she is a ten-year-old Dobermann.
And this is Milo, a Border Collie x Labrador, and a lady of sixteen years.
While the girls were being lazy in the living room, I went outside to meet the chickens.
Blaze the horse is only visiting to act as a lawnmower. She accepts carrots as payment.
When I went back inside, Milo and Lady were still lounging.
...But then I said I was leaving, and suddenly everyone wanted to be outside.
Lady watched me leave.
Don't worry, Lady, I'll be back every day - at least twice!
