A pet sitter’s photo gallery

A picture is worth a thousand words. The featured photo is a rare shot of Duncan in repose. Twelve hours of maniacal outrageousness wears this little lunatic out every time. I wouldn’t say the following photos are the “best” of Eric’s Pet Sitting, but they are certainly among the top 3,000.

Rueben the Weimaraner. He was a hoot, and his ears were bigger than he was!


Remy is named for Gambit (Remy Etienne LeBeau), a fictional character in the world of Marvel Comics. Commonly in association with the X-Men, the mutant Gambit has the ability to mentally create, control, and manipulate pure kinetic energy to his desire. Just like Remy.

Cooper, Genevieve, and Riggins anticipating a treat. This occurred during one of many “indoor dog park” days at Jeep John’s house. We met there when it was too rainy to go to the park. Highlights include Nitro stealing an entire loaf of bread off the kitchen counter, and Remy peeing on the Christmas tree.

Ollie Ollie Ollie get your adverbs here

Ollie napping with his buddy, Bear. Ollie is a Bichon Frise, a distinct type of toy dog dating to at least the 11th century. Ollie’s ancestors were relatively common in 14th-century France, where they were kept as pets of the royalty and aristocracy. The name “bichon” is a contraction of “barbichon,” which means “little barbet,” which is a large-headed, brightly colored fruit-eating bird that has a stout bill with tufts of bristles.

Where’d that ball go??
