ONCE in a while Willow the black Labrador comes to the HouseSitMatch offices on a little holiday while her Mum Mary goes away for work. She seems to like coming to visit and without a doubt we love having her with us.
Needless to say it’s hard to resist stroking her if she passes by, she is calm and very affectionate. She makes sure she does the rounds of all our desks on a regular basis, we are after all her captive audience.
At 11 years old Willow is ageing gracefully, though she does walk with a little rheumatic limp. Chasing other dogs and even running after her ball though a tempting proposition is a little more difficult now. And new environments can cause her a little anxiety sometimes.
So Mary her owner tries to keep Willow’s routine pretty stable by either having house-sitters at home or taking her to a familiar and friendly home.
It also happens that she loves coming to our office and being part of the gang, greeting everyone as they come in, and visiting from time to time to make sure they relax a little by petting and stroking her. We love you Willow, you can visit us at any time.
