This is probably a good time to mention to folks that watch over someone else's pet (not just you Jen, but you broought it up
)... The emergency contact needs to work in twofold; 1) If something happens to the pet. 2) If something happens to the owner.....
It doesn't do any good to have their cell and their son's cell if both are going to a family reunion, travelling togther and their car rolls over (or worse).
Are you prepared to care for their dog for a month? Longer? What would be their wishes for their pet if they are unable to care for it anymore?
Grave thought, but it happens
