Sad

Gambit is sick and there isn't anything I can do because in Canada, it's a long weekend, so I can't get to the vet until Tuesday. :(

He's been kind of sluggish the past few days. I called the vet about his peeing problem and they said if it continued, to make an appointment, but it hasn't continued, so I didn't. Then, yesterday, he vomited everywhere first thing in the morning, and he did again today, too. He seems really "sad" - going around making a sad face and he doesn't want to play.

So he's clearly sick. :( Any advice to tide me over until Tuesday? He's eating his food okay (or he did yesterday), he just seems really sluggish, not up for a lot of activity. I feel terrible that I didn't push for a vet appointment when I called; the lady seemed to think that it wasn't a big deal and that I should "wait and see". Well, now they are closed and he is actually sick and I can't do anything about it. :(

Dog-sitting

This isn't really related to bostons, but I was wondering if anyone has had experience dog sitting for other people. I'm a teacher and off for the summer, so I thought it might be nice to get a little extra cash dog sitting (i'm flexible whether it's in my home or theirs). I just don't know if I need to get any sort of certification, or if anyone has any advice. My 2 bostons seem to get along with most other dogs, but I'd have to ask a lot of questions before inviting strange dogs into my home. Also, I live in Michigan and I have no clue what to charge. I think I'll call some local kennels tomorrow to get an idea. I'd appreciate any input. Thanks!
