Pet Sitting Adventures – December Edition
Hello my friends and welcome. What an unusually light weekend last weekend was, with only fourteen visits in total the entire weekend. I’m not sure why that was, but I’m pretty sure it’s the calm before the storm, aka the holidays. So here is the deal for any new readers here. Pet sitting is my part-time, fun “job”. I work one weekend a month, every four weeks (and sometimes more often, if it is needed and I am available) and have been doing so for the last five years. It was a job that I just happen to stumble upon I guess at the right time and I feel so blessed to be able to do what I do. I get to spend time with animals and anyone that knows me well will tell you that my heart is with four-legged creatures; I am often saying that I prefer animals over people, but that’s just me. There’s just something so special that I cannot put into words about how I feel when I’m around animals. What can I say? I am animal mad in every sense of the word. I physically cannot walk past a dog in the street without loving on it and I’ve been known to on many occasions to stop the car and get out to ask to pet your dog. Yes, I am THAT person. And, FUNNILY, despite being allergic to cats, I still cannot resist a sweet, fluffy purring love. It’s crazy, but it’s true and I love every second of it.

So let’s get to it, shall we? Weekend Stats:
- Number of booked visits: 14 visits in total, one on Friday night, 8 on Saturday and 5 on Sunday.
- Animals: Dogs and Cats, nothing out of the ordinary or exotic.
- Distance driven in weekend (Friday night at 6 pm to Sunday night at 10 pm): 152 kilometers.
- Weather: Windy, snowy, you know, typical December weather for Ontario.
Friday, Saturday & Sunday
This weekend was pretty smooth sailing but as I said, I think it’s the calm before the storm – before all the parties and festive and family events begin, but maybe not, maybe people are staying home more this year. Overall, it was a good and relatively easygoing weekend and for that, I am grateful.
Well that’s it for now. I hope you enjoy the pet pictures as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
