Just wondering what other people do with their pets when they go on holiday? How much do you pay/would you expect to be paid? I ask because MIL has told (not asked) us that we will be looking after her beloved dog this year when they go on holiday. Now Mr CC is currently living with his parents but the dog is not a family pet it belongs solely to MIL. She believes that she shouldn't pay him anything as he lives there but will pay him £10 for the whole week. Last year we looked after him for 2 weeks when they went away but we had our own rented property (pets not allowed) so had to move into MILs for the fortnight and we were £20. Obviously its not that difficult to look after him but it is rather inconvenient because we have to rearrange any plans we have to make sure that he is not left alone for too long and that we can feed him at a suitable time. He has a lovely () habit of waking us up very early in the morning to be fed because thats the time he is used to being fed. Also if we want to go away then we can't go when they are (they have yet to book anything). Last year we had arranged to go camping and it turned out to be during the time they were away so we took him with us and it was a total nightmare! The weather turned out to be hideous and none of the pubs would let us go inside with him so we had to sit outside in the cold/wet or retreat to our tent. We will not be repeating that again haha. So back to the original question, would you expect to be paid for looking after somebodys pet and how much would you expect? Thanks!
