Dog/House Sitting – Buddy & Coconut

I’ve found that looking after someone’s dog(s), so the owners can get away is great for me.  I get to spend time with the dog(s) with lots of kisses and a cuddly critter to sleep with – without having any expenses for food or veterinarian  services.  The bonus is that people will pay me to… Continue reading Dog/House Sitting – Buddy & Coconut

Size is a huge difference and age is also a big difference between these two boys.  I have… Continue reading A Visit with Jack
