My boyfriend Felix and I are dog lovers and long to have pets of our own, but we haven't had the opportunity yet because of our 'nomadic' lifestyle. He is from Germany and I'm from Ghana and we recently moved to Philadelphia.
In Ghana, we always had dogs as pets as my father and I really loved them. I would feed them, wash their bowls, take them out on a walk and wash them every other weekend. It was a great experience and one I believe helped me develop a sense of responsibility.
I am currently a 'stay-at-home' girlfriend and so I have a lot of free time on my hands, and what better way to occupy myself than to care for a dog while his/her parents are at work or on a dream vacation!
Our apartment is cozy and dogs are allowed in the building. I also live very close to the Rittenhouse park and love the outdoors, so walking, playing and potty breaks will be a joy for us both.
