I want to be a dog in my next life. Pet sitting just might turn me into a dog lover. Who couldn't love this little guy-Fonzi. Sheltie or Shetland Sheepdog, who's actually 9 years old. Since his hair has been cut, he's been mistaken for a Collie puppy everywhere I go with him. Dogs are truly social magnets--I've talked to more people in my neighborhood since sitting for Fonzi this past week than the 8 months I've lived here. We've been to 3 dog parks in Madison. I have a favorite, but I doubt that Fonzi does--it's total freedom for him.
