I feel that absolute minimum effort was put forth... First, the ask: house-sit a very gentle, maintenance-free, yellow lab over the holiday week (6 days). The deliver... we returned to find a very sad and depressed dog... Something that had never happened with four previous sitters.
Someone smoked in my house while gone which is completely unacceptable, I received only one update and that's after asking repeatedly for one. I happen to be out of ...

Who's a good boy

What Melanie would like to know about your dog

I would like to know how loud the dog is before sitting him or her! I live in an apartment complex and don't believe my neighbors would enjoy a noisy, barking dog! Any details are great beforehand-- I'd love to know what kind of personality the dog has, and how easy to care for it is.
