I grew up with a Siberian Husky but have not had a dog in my adult life. Fortunately, I have had the opportunity to pet sit for my friend's dogs, which I just love. I know I am helping them, and will be helping you, but having a dog, even, temporary, helps me! They make me happy and I just adore them. I am often referred to as Auntie because my friend's feel that I spoil their dogs. I let them sleep on my bed and give them a lot of love.
My apartment is not big, but the great thing is that there are no steps in my apartment, nor to get outside. It is very easy for me to take the dogs for walks, I am 2 blocks from Central Park and 4 blocks from the doggy park.
I work from home, so I have a lot of flexibility to take the dogs out for walks and bathroom breaks.
The only restriction I have is if the dog comes from a home where there are smokers, and has a smell of smoke.. I can't take them.
