Today is Daisy's 7th Birthday!

 I can't believe I almost let the day go by without announcing that today is Daisy's 7th birthday! 

I chose to feature the above picture first because it was taken a few weeks after her adoption when she finally started to feel comfortable in her new surroundings. The other reason why I love this picture is because those adorable ears look even better because the wind made it look like she took a few moments to curl them to resemble a Carol Brady hairstyle. Ha! Ha!


When I took her home in 2009 my plan was to give her a full life with daily opportunities to receive ample exercise and meet new friends while walking with my Teacher's Pet Sitting Service clients (shown here in 2009 with her first friend, Sophie) and she has been reaping the benefits every since! 

Daisy has had a wonderful life so far full of romps in the lake,

walks to the bank, 

rides to the dog washing station, 

trips to the coffee shop,

and strolls on the beach and so many more memories that it would take days to post them all! I am so very happy to have her in my life!

Today I am going to treat her to an extra special day full of all of the things she loves best!

Mission Im-PAW-sible!

It is a perfect spring day without a cloud in the sky in my little corner of the world so I'm hoping your dogs are spending more time outdoors than in BUT if they do need to take a break at the window I hope you know they are trying to save your life! Ha! Ha! 

Have a happy Saturday, everyone!

Daisy and I Stop to See the Alpacas!

When Daisy and I are on our dog walking circuit we rarely have time to take a break in between visits but last week we couldn't resist stopping to see these majestic 

alpacas walk toward us from their

barn on Town Hall Road in Madbury.

Of all of the alpacas there this fella was the most curious and I almost had the chance to pet him!

The bonus of this visit was to see roosters and chickens squawking and strutting throughout the farm but my camera wasn't cooperating at the time but I will be back to try again!

If you would like to take a trip to see these alpacas and their feathered companions please visit their  website for further information!

Daisy, Buster, and Dinah Receive Emergency Visits and Loved the TLC!

One of the rewarding things about being a professional pet sitter is when I receive emergency phone calls from pet owners who want me to take care of their companions in their home because they know a boarding facility just won't do.

 In the case of Daisy (above) and her brother


and their gorgeous Persian sister, Dinah, they were more than comfortable having me visit them three times a day for nearly an hour (and sometimes more) for five days!

Walking, feeding, petting, and talking to these precious pets was a joy especially since I knew that I was providing peace of mind to them and their owners during such a stressful time! 

If you live in the Dover and greater Dover area and are in need of pet care whether it is for an emergency, a vacation, or weekly walks while you are at work I can help! For more information, click here! Thank you!
