Rumor has it that Casey and Dan are making the annual pilgrimage to Idaho to see the fam. (I know - It's totally not fair that Rajah and I are not invited. We wouldn't eat the cats - Promise!!)
But the regular kennel has raised it's rates to far more than "regular" prices. At least it's more than what Casey can afford ($20/day - PER DOG! and for NINE DAYS? Fuggedaboutit!)
So she had a recommend from a co-worker and a rescue coordinator about another kennel that costs less than half that.
So off we went to check the place out.
Indoor/outdoor kennels? Check.
Play yard? Check.
Secure fencing? Check.
Kind owner? Check and check.
So we are let loose in the play yard to make sure it suits us. The first thing Rajah and I do? Yep, take a nice post-dinner squat. Classy. Then, like usual, I have to clean up after Rajah.
Casey found this embarrassing and offensive to our prospective nanny.
"Oh, she's one of those," the lady said. "I have shelties, so I'm used to it."
Hmm...this lady might be alright!
Then, I saw the most amazing thing of all - just on the other side of the fence, was this curious dog-sized HORSE! It was about the same size as the Great Pyr guarding it!
I looked, and paced, and sniffed, and finally barked at it a bit. No response. Hmph.
Not the most friendly of creatures, if you ask me.
I guess they are used to dogs barking at them. I think I'll have my work cut out for me!

I have one of those little horses too. He lives in my neighborhood, three houses down. Wanna know what he did one day when I was sniffing him through the fence? He flipped on his back and rolled around in the grass! LIKE A DOG!?! Silly little bugger! He doesn't know he's a horse!
