Windycon is looking unlikely. Help?|
Hey cutie, there IS an alternative.
I live 10 minutes from the Windycon hotel. You can bring your dog(s) here and you can care for it (them) yourself. We can keep him(them) in my kitchen. I'll be rooming with Jan at the CON, so I won't be home.
I'd hate for you to miss Windy.
I can transport the dogs in the car, but they take up the whole car except the front passenger seat. Since I'm giving birder2
a ride, we would together be limited to the luggage that could fit in the glove box. And Windy hates riding in the car, while Meg can't seem to figure out that she doesn't need to stand up for the whole trip, and standing up she blocks my rear-view mirror. So thanks for the offer, but it so wouldn't work.
Fortunately, I have found a pet sitter that I think will be able to handle it. A little expensive (well, actually a lot expensive; dog care will be almost as much as the hotel room for the weekend) -- but I can afford it more than I can afford the stress of trying to beg my friends into covering it or missing Windycon if they wouldn't.
