10 Reasons Why I Love Pet Sitting

In case any of my readers have ever wondered why I chose to give up a teaching career in 2006 to become a full-time pet sitter, please take a look at the following 10 reasons:

10. I am obsessed with dogs with long, floppy ears! I think Sophie has the most beautiful ears and I can't get enough of them or of her! I love this little girl so much!

9. Tartan reminds me that I won't ever lose my skills as a teacher which comes in handy when she decides to bark at strangers. I simply give her "that teacher look" and the naughtiness ends right away.

8. Because dogs never refuse a car ride to the dog park! Tank and Ellie are two of my best passengers!

7. Because I love overbites...especially Baxter's!

6. And because some dogs beg me to stay just a little while longer and if it's Manny, the pug, I often give in to his wishes.

5. And I just love swimming with Jake, my black lab friend.

4. Finding out that some dogs, like Ella, are very busy before their mid-day walk is a comical sight indeed.

3. And I can't help but smile when I take pictures of Ace because he has lots of style.

2. And I love that some dogs really believe they can drive! Baxter still thinks he belongs in the driver's seat!

1. I love having Daisy as my walking partner and I am lucky that I can take her to work with me everyday.


  1. So very cute! Makes me think how animals do all have individual personalities and can make us feel happy and loved much like children can! Great pics!

  2. Those are 10 wonderful reasons, and I would love to have your career too :)

  3. I think it's wonderful that you are doing what you love, and love what you're doing!!!

  4. I love all your dog pictures there soooo cute!
    I really like the one of Tartan!

  5. You have 10 very good reasons!
    Kisses and hugs

  6. Thank you, everyone, for your comments! I will be sure to tell Tartan that she is the favorite dog! I wish every single one of you could meet all of these dogs in person! They would love the attention!

  7. Thanks for taking such great care of our four legged family members. You add to their quality of life.

  8. Thank you, anonymous, for such a sweet compliment! I am trying to figure out who you are though...The 2 Baxter moms? Jake & Halo's mom? Well, whoever you are, thank you so much!


Woof! Meow! Meow! Thanks for leaving a comment!
