Thinking of applying for a full time job but feel guilty!

A really good job/promotion has come up at work.

I currently work 3 days a week and this would be full time, but a secondment for two years so not for ever. But still two years is a long time in the life of a dog.

Dog is two years old. I currently do have a dog walker who comes in every day and obviously we would get the dog walker to come every day if I took the job. Dd gets home at 4pm from school but everyone leaves at 8am.

I'm thinking of not going for the interview as I just feel so bad about the thought of her been home on her own. I think she's ok on her own. We leave the radio on and a kong.

But my neighbour has on occassion complained about her barking (we're a semi). I do think this isn't frequent though as I have asked the neighbour's to tell me if there's a problem. I asked the neighbour's at easter if things were ok and they said they hadn't heard her for ages. Then the other day we went out for the morning and as soon as we got back the neighbour was here saying dog had barked non stop for three hours. I can only think that she's been used to dd being home for the last few weeks and wasn't used to being in her own? But it's really given me second thoughts about the job.

I use doggy day care for my dog when I need to go into the office - have a look in your local area- I pay 10 a day and that includes a good walk and my dog being cared for by someone I trust

My dog loves it - I know she misses me because of the welcome she gives me but she is perfectly happy! I just make sure we have a fun time together in the mornings and evenings and at weekends.

Take the promotion and look into finding a wonderful dog carer in your area

Doggy day care is a good idea.

There's a dog walker in my village (not the one I use) who also does home boarding so I think she might be open to doggy daycare. I will ask her.

Thanks, hadn't even considered that. I know dog would be happier being with someone.
