Although, I have 20 plus years of experience in the criminal justice field, my passion has always been the love of owning an caring for pets. My folks raised us on a "gentleman's farm", extremely unique for the area we lived in, the farm included; goats, chickens, horses, dogs (German shepherds), cats, fish, ducks, turkeys and strays who would wander in. About 10 years ago while friends vacationed in Europe, inquired any interests in pet sitting/house sitting over night for her four dogs (2 cairn terriers/2 schnauzers). The pet sitting job entailed medication for two of dogs, walking, feeding and taking care of house, mail, deliveries, watering plants and documenting phone messages all while maintaining my full-time job. I absolutely loved every minute of it! The second family has two pugs, occasionally I take care of them over the years as well. One of the pugs lost her eye. I give her medication, walk, feed, house sit overnight, bring in the mail and newspaper, and care for the other playful puppy. They are great people with great pets! The third family has a Weimaraner, Chow Chow, two cats and a tropical fish tank. Jack the Weimaraner has severe medical issues but loved to play with mini dachshund.
