I helped a friend to look after her dog, Charlie while she attended a course. Charlie is a friendly, clever and active jack russell. The problem was my flat is mostly carpeted and the only non-carpeted area are my small kitchen and bathroom. So in order to let him out, I had to put him in the toilet and played with him. He shed quite a lot of fur. I had his fur all over my coat when I brought him out to pee and poo. He was too active and it was difficult to hold onto him with the lead. Anyway, it was really a wonderful experience to be a day 'dog-sitter'.
