Adventures in Dog/Cat/House Sitting – part 2

As I mentioned yesterday, the dogs and I head out on at least one walk each day. Some days, we go around turns and down streets and I often let the dogs pick the route. I enjoy the scenery and the different streets we travel on, but photo taking opportunities are not as good as… Continue reading Adventures in Dog/Cat/House Sitting – part 2

Adventures in Dog/Cat/House Sitting – part 1

My love of critters of all kinds combined with my lack of finances to live where I can actually have my own pets any longer, has lead me to looking after other people’s pets while they are away from home. This is the perfect solution, allowing me to spend time with critters without the expense… Continue reading Adventures in Dog/Cat/House Sitting – part 1
