I feel bad about asking this but I am in need of a major favor. I am the primary caretaker for my elderly mother and have been since 1995. Not only is her overall health poor but her mind is starting to go now. She will call me a dozen or more times a day on the days that I am not over there. It is a full time job to deal with her. I also currently have 9 dogs to care for. I am exhausted mentally, physically, and emotionally and I really need a break.
My birthday falls on Labor Day weekend which coincides with the yearly sci-fi convention in Atlanta, GA called Dragon Con. It is a 4 day event from Sept 2-5. I go every year but I always have to leave by about 4-5 pm to go home to take care of my dogs. This makes for extrememly long and tiring days. This year, a friend has offered to let me crash in their hotel room so I don't have to go home. I could really use a break from responsibilities for a few days but I just can't afford to board the dogs anywhere.. I was wondering if any of you would be interested in dogsitting a Basenji or two Sept 1-5?
