Well, we've taken care of the neighbor's dog.
Big dog -- I think he's a German Shepherd. Quiet, though, which adds to a certain feeling of menace when he looms out of the gloom. He did bark a couple of times when another dog kicked it off, but after I spoke sharply to him, he stopped (much to my surprise). Otherwise, he just followed me around, or sat, panting, watching me. Licked my hand a couple of times. I wasn't sure if he was getting ready for a snack. I thought our cat ate a lot, but this dog had two bags of food sitting ready, each of which was about 25 pounds. I wonder if he can be counted as a dependent?
It's a little bit of an odd feeling, being in someone else's home when they're not there. Didn't help that I couldn't find any stray cash.
It wasn't any trouble, but I don't think we'll be getting one any time soon.
