    the hand that rocks the DOG BED

    so my landlord had decided to sell my home after 15 years, i have had to temporary re home my dog while i am in temporary accommodation ,
    i have had my dog rufus for over 3 years now , and have found somebody a family of 3 next to my friends house who have agreed to look after him ,
    if i supply the food and visit as much as i can ,

    I dropped him of on the Thursday, got enough food for the month to them on Friday , and came back today ( Sunday)
    i have just found out today that the man has been letting my dog in the bath with him , now is it just me or is that just weird ? my dog has never tried jumping in the bath with me, he sleeps next to it while im in it , this guy has carried him in to it i reckon !

    I am lost for words 4 days in , i feel like they have jumped to conclusions that ill never be able to get him back so have accepted him as there own dog already ,

    any thoughts ?
