Pet Sitting Adventures – February 2018 Edition
Hello my friends and welcome. Last weekend was busy and the weather was crappy, which made getting to pet visits a bit stressful, but in the end, it was alright. It was pretty cold again, much like it was in January. Getting to it, here is the deal for any new readers. 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. If you want to check out another pet post, check out another fun post, check out things I’ve learned over the last five years of pet sitting.
So let’s get to it, shall we? Weekend Stats:
- Number of booked visits: Originally it was 32, then 35, then 5 visits someone else took. In the end, there were 30 scheduled visits – 4 on Friday night, 14 on Saturday and 12 on Sunday.
- Animals: Dogs and Cats.
- Distance driven in weekend (Friday night at 6:30 pm to Sunday night at 9:30 pm): 220 kilometres.
- Weather: Really freaking cold and snowy!! Same as January’s weekend.
This is Jericho and Juno. Jericho is a Savannah (my first ever) and Juno is a beautiful Rag doll.
Meanwhile, back at home, Charlie was grooming Baxter and he was all over it.
Saturday & Sunday
These two Greyhounds were just the cutest and sweetest dogs.. It was my first time meeting them both and once I got inside their house, both were happily wagging their tails and Rupert was giving toothy smiles. Have you ever seen a Greyhound smile? It’s the cutest but can look a bit scary if you’ve never seen them go it before.
Walking Harry Potter (yes, that’s his name), a Wirefox Terrier.
Derby. I met him and looked after him last month.
Vinny and Will, a regular client of ours.
Juno, such a handsome boy.
This little guy’s parents were getting married and his grandparents were picking him up after the wedding. 🙂
Carlo, this fella would follow me around like a dog.
I guess I didn’t take too many pictures last weekend but that was mainly due to the cold and it was snowing for the majority of the weekend.
Well that’s it for now, friends. I hope you enjoy the pet pictures as much as I do.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
