I, too, am glad you found a caring person to take care of the animals at your house.

What a great picture--a pretty dogsitter, a beautiful dog, and blooming flowers in the background!

For some reason, attracts the meanest bunch of commenters anywhere. I cannot believe that NOT ONE person had anything kind to say on Christie's piece, and that people had the nerve to crticize her for arranging care for her pets while her mom was in the hospital.

WHY OH WHY do pet-haters insist on reading (and commenting on) stories about pets?

Gina Spadafori

That is such a nice picture of them both. :)

Been thinking about you and your family. Take the time you need.


"and the chaos into which it’s plunged our entire family, because this is, after all, a pet blog and I’m a pet columnist."

However, they are also your family, and any one of us could find ourselves plunged into the same panicky situation. I think the sharing of your experiences during this stressful time is VERY relevant to us as caring pet owners, and I thank you for taking the time to do so. Because it's a real wakeup call for us to be thinking of contingency plans in the event something similar should come to pass in any one of our lives.

So thank you for sharing your story and your experiences, and know that you and your mother are in my thoughts.


Christie, I'm really sorry you're going through this. I'm glad you were able to find the right people to help with the Furry Ones.


I'm glad you found a safety net of fur-loving folk, too, Christie, and am sending all possible good vibes to you and your mom.
