About Richard

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi. I am a single man living in Manhattan. I work as an IT professional and also write and act on the side. I have always been an animal lover. As a child, teen, and young adult, I cared for two dogs. I also had have cats, the last one I had for 15 years. It was heartbreaking to have to deal with his passing so I haven't been ready to have another pet. I miss interacting with dogs, and since I'm not ready to own one yet, I would love to help other people with their pets. Dogs are like children and they require a level of commitment and responsibility, so organizations like this that can help out are great.

I have a rescue dog named Buddy Waye Fox. Buddy was used as a bait dog, he's afraid of people, other dogs, garbage bags, windy curtains, ad infinitum...I tell people over and over again, "Don't try and befriend him, let him make the first move."...most proceed to tell me that they're great with dogs, dogs love them (etc) and they try anyway and he lives glued to my side/back, almost on top of my head, until they leave. Rich listened from the start and now Buddy has a real friend. When the doorbell rings and I tell him it's Rich, he wags his tail and whines his happy whine (I know how weird that sounds, but Buddy is an odd dog). Buddy is still a bit cautious and Rich gives him his space, but it doesn't take long before Buddy is glued to his side, sitting on his lap and loving Rich's "dog massage". It's kinda, sorta wonderful. Rich loves dogs and he'll be great asset to DogVacay!
