Tammy Anderson-Owens- Thoughts

Add dog sitter to my job description

I have had a showing scheduled for a week on one of my listings.  The seller even asked me yesterday if I knew which agent was showing it.  I get a call from the buyer's agent - "Hello Tammy, we're at the showing and there are dogs barking and we're not going in".  "OK, I'll be right there, please wait".  Showings are golden and I didn't want to lose it.  While in route to the house I called my seller and explained the situation.  She says "They won't bite, they're just babies but they might go the bathroom".  Then she proceeds to ask if I can take them outside to take care of business.  Sure, I can do that.  Keep in mind that they are little dogs and I wasn't afraid of them.  So I take them outside to do what they do and one takes off one way and one the other.  I'm calling them, offering treats and anything else I can do.  Today was a beautiful day so running after dogs left me a sweaty mess.  The showing laster for over an hour and a half!  I chased the cute little babies until I caught them, picked them up and put them in the laundry room.  By the way - my dog sitting adventure lasted so long I had to cancel a lunch that I have had scheduled for a couple of weeks.  THEY BETTER BUY THAT HOUSE!!  And people say we don't work hard enough for our money!!  :)
