I grew up having all sorts of pets around me, mostly dogs though. For as long as I can remember; I have always wanted a pet my own.
Even though life hasn't given me the chance to have my own pet, I am now proudly housing and caring for my sister in law's dog, Minnie, until my nephew starts walking.
Having Minnie around has made me appreciate the love of dogs even more and I know and understand how difficult it is to trust someone with your pet (a.k.a. child)!!
I have cared for many dogs for my friends and family going on about 3 consecutive years.
I love that I live close to home so I am able to go for lunch and walk the dog’s mid-day. I always have toys and treats laying around for my furry loves.
And I can’t wait to get home most days because I love playing with the dogs. I am very friendly and energetic just like my temporary housemate (Minnie, the puggle). She has been a true companion and it is nice having her around. You feel less lonely when you are living on your own.
Although I do have some times when I get tired, I have trained them a bit to play among themselves and each pet I have taken care of has done really well without seeming so needy.
I was brought up with manners and believe our furry friends should have manners as well. Therefore, I will correct bad behavior (stern voice used and possible time out) and reward good behavior (showing affection, giving treats).
