Pet Sitting Adventures – February 2018 Edition   Recently updated !

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”.

2017 Royal Canin Dog Show

2017 Royal Canin Dog Show

Anyone that knows me will tell you that I often prefer animals over people and that couldn’t be any more true.  Attending the 2017 Royal Canin Dog Show was a definite must again this year, as we really, really enjoyed going last year and what better way to spend a Saturday afternoon in good company, surrounded by hundreds of my four-legged friends?  I can’t think of many other things that bring as much joy, but that’s just my opinion….  And you know that I had a smile plastered on my face the entire time, so that’s a great day in […]
