We are Ale, Celine, and Samson. That is, a dog-loving couple and their small 1.5 yo rescue mutt with a wiggle butt.
We rescued Samson in August 2012, and we feel like the luckiest moms in the world. He's a lover of all and everyone, and wise beyond his years. Even the mail man likes him! And, he loves nothing more than having canine company.
Although Samson doesn't mind size differences, he is a wee little guy, and so we'd like to keep the size gap relatively close. So, unless your giant is as gentle as can be with small guys, our home may not be the best match. Also, we like to have only one doggie guest at a time (so please consider booking early).
About our home: We live in a large one bedroom, on the bottom floor of a lovely home with a dog friendly landlord, many cozy nooks, and an enclosed garden.
Over the last 4 years, we have volunteered as foster and hospice moms with Muttville Senior Dogs Rescue. We have hosted many dogs here, many of them senior and with special needs. As such, we are both dog CPR trained certified, and we are used to administering pills, or even subcutaneous injections. We like to cook for our dogs, and they are allowed pretty much everywhere in the house. We do like to practice a good sit, down, and wait, and make sure our dogs are stimulated and stress-free... Celine is also a dog volunteer at the SF SPCA and assists with public dog training classes there. And, we own all the dog training books you could think of :)
Celine works from home as a web producer, and is the full-time dogsitter; at night, both moms are on duty. A typical dog day here includes at least 30 minutes of free play in an enclosed dog park in the city (mission creek or noe valley recreation center being our favorites), several walks around the small mission streets, and if we're lucky, a trip to Fort Funston, Bernal Hill, or St Mary's park.
If you're curious for more info, we'd be happy to share more photos and videos of us, and some of our foster dogs, so just ask :) We love to post photos of our guests!
Ale, Celine, and Samson.
