My History With Animals: Why They Are The Light Of My Life
Avg response < 1 hrs
I provide dog, fish, & bird sitting/daily feeding, as well as dog walking. I currently have three dogs (two cockapoos and one greyhound) ages 15, 16, & 8 respectively, along with a 16-year-old Quaker Parrot, a 12-14-year-old Tarantula, and a year old Beta Fish. Previously we had a border collie, 6 chickens, Tetra Fish, & a Beta.
Both Cockapoos have been with me since they were puppies, while the Greyhound has been with us since he was 5 (he was adopted from a family that could not keep taking care of him, as they had adopted him to get him off the racetrack). The Quaker Parrot has been with me for 8 years & the Tarantula has been ours for 6.
I am used to taking care of high maintenance pets (our Greyhound has a fear of storms, the bird has anxiety & PTSD from his time at middle school, so he is hostile to everyone but me. Meanwhile the cockapoos have become incontinent & require frequent letting out). I love all dogs/birds, & could spend hours petting, playing, or chatting with them!
