I babysat my friend's dog over the weekend while she and her partner went away for the night. It was totally fine - the dog is lovely, they brought over food and dog crate for her to sleep in, she got along well with my dogs.
Since it went so well, she asked me if I would consider having her dog while they're away for 4 weeks over Christmas. She offered to pay me like $500 or so because we'd be doing her a favour and she'd feel better knowing the dog was going to enjoy its stay (as opposed to at the kennels). I told her I didn't want her money and I was happy to have the dog, but she insisted.
I'd feel really strange accepting that much money off a friend, but I know a good kennel would be way more than that, and she wants to repay me for doing the favour.
What would you do?!?! (No judgement of course! Hubby said take the money!)
