    Could it be split between Jess, Katie and Si and your dog walker? What about applying to something like the cinnamon trust too?
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    When in doubt, stop and think... WWSS? (What Would Suzi Say?)

    Were trying to work it out - thought it partly depends on results tomorrow and what Jess will be doing. The Cinnamon Trust? Ive had a quick look and are you thinking about fostering? That would be a definite no, particularly for Si. The thought of him dying when in someone elses home? No ....
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    No!!!! The cinnamon trust go in and walk dogs for people who are in hospital etc... Or they used to...
    What about a student in house dog sitter who could come every day to sit with him?

    From what I briefly read, they only do that for the elderly or terminally ill.
    Si would not let anyone else sit in the house with Polo. Hes funny like that .....

    Well sort something out but thank you for the suggestions

    No problem, I thought it's worth just throwing out suggestions - another stupid one, I don't suppose that Polo could go to work with him a day or two? I know that the hoomin who has Crash's brother takes him to work in the centre of London every day lol

    It is a dog friendly office so its not a stupid question at all but as Polo has got older, hes becoming more and more freaked out by anything thats not home. Tbh, he was in a state the whole time we were away. And, with his arthritis, he wouldnt be able to walk from Waterloo to the office.

    Aww poor baby! Would Si be able to work at home more whilst you are away? Maybe persuade Jess/Katie to do a day or so too?
