I have been caring for animals of all sorts all my life--horses, cats, dogs, lizards, birds, to name a few. I sometimes travel for work so I don't have a pet of my own now. I am an organic landscape gardener and so I have a lovely large fenced in yard so pets can have a romp. I like walking dogs and enjoy their company in the evenings when I read a book. I also belong to a dog hiking meetup group and can take your dog if he/she is well-behaved on leash and sociable.
Some fun dog resources:
DogVacay won't let me put links, but check out retirementtalk dot org/rt447.mp3 for a lovely discussion on dogs and retirement
