Cookie’s holiday – how a pet sitter can make sure your pet enjoys your holiday too

Happy dog

Cookie the dog loves holidays members Jim and Tracey recently looked after the gorgeous Cookie while his owners had a well deserved holiday. As you can see Cookie had a great ‘holiday’ too with lots of fuss and long walks with his new friends. He was very happy not to have to go to kennels and his owners had a relaxing break knowing Cookie was well cared for by a pet sitter in his own home. Jim and Tracey’s photo blog shows what a lovely time everyone had!

Sad dog

My family went to Majorca and they left me behind

No kennels for Cookie

But when I found out I wasn’t going to kennels I soon cheered up


Cookie in the car

I enjoyed my own holiday! Every morning I jumped in the car and went exploring with Jim and Trace.

Cookie goes walking

We did lots of long walks – over moorland……

Walking by the river

Along rivers……..

Hill walking

We climbed hills……

Visiting a waterfall

And visited waterfalls…….


There was plenty of time for paddling

Overgrown teddy bear

And wherever I went people said what a ‘bonny’ dog I was, and kids wanted to pat and stroke me. One lady shouted ‘there’s an overgrown teddy bear behind me’. The cheek of it! But I took it all in my stride.

Tired dog

It was all rather exhausting really…..


But I always managed to keep an eye on the food situation…

Tuna sandwich

View? What view? The only thing I’m interested in is that tuna sandwich…

Almond Slice

I’m also pretty partial to an almond slice (or two).

Cookie in a bag

If I got too dirty, I had to suffer the indignity of ‘the bag’.

Last walk

All too soon it was over. My last walk with the surrogates.


Home again. All good things come to an end. I wonder if my owners enjoyed their holiday as much as I enjoyed mine

    Cute pictures to go with the vacation story! Thanks for sharing.
    Would you fancy a trip to New Orleans, LA, USA sometimes?
    We have two dogs and two cats who would love to meet you (as well as us too, of course!)

      Hi Melanie,

      Cookie is very cute isn’t he! I personally would love to come to New Orleans – it’s always been on my bucket list. Perhaps I’ll get a chance in the not too distant future.

      All the best, Lisa
