Pets:

I grew up and learned all about life with my two best friends - first with a Golden Retriever named Dauber and then with a Bichon/Havanese mix named Mickey. They helped shape me into the person (and animal lover) I am today! Now, my wonderful hound mix Cooper can always be found by my side. 

Favorite Animal:

You'll never guess... dogs!

Favorite Thing About Pet Sitting:

Being able to do what I love every single day, and meeting so many amazing animals! 

Favorite Song/Lyric:

Anything and everything by Andrew McMahon.

Hidden Talent:

I play piano, guitar, ukulele, harmonica, and am currently working on learning the drums (but definitely don't test me on that one yet!)

When I'm Not Pet Sitting, I'm:

Wondering why I'm not pet sitting? Ha you can find me hanging out with Kelly and our pups, dancing at a concert, or finding somewhere new to eat with my fiance. I could also be playing guitar, but most likely I'm just binge watching a Netflix series.

 

Pets:

My first pets were two kitties my brothers named Ren & Stimpy. Growing up, my best friend was Sparky a beagle/pit mix. He passed and we later added a pug named Lucky to our family. It was in college that I got my two pups, Rowdie and Grizzie. Rowdie is a college pup for sure, he loved staying up late, meeting new people, & walking on FSU's campus. He is my wise, angelic and crazy best friend! Grizzie is the cuddliest and most awkward dog you'll ever meet. He is so unbelievably sweet and completely stole my heart! A running joke with my boyfriend and I is wondering whether he is a baby because we baby him or do we baby him because he is a baby! 

Favorite Animal:

Dog, of course, but I also LOVE penguins. I relate to their awkwardness. :-p

Favorite Thing About Pet Sitting:

The unconditional love I am lucky enough to receive every day! They give so much and ask for so little!

Favorite Song/Lyric:

"You might reach the stars, depending on how flexible you are" -Allen Stone & "All the lines we cast will bring us home" -Andrew McMahon

Hidden Talent:

I'm really intuitive and good at reading people. 

When I'm Not Pet Sitting, I'm:

Relaxing outside listening to music with my boyfriend and pups, practicing yoga, drinking a good beer or dancing at a concert. I also love to travel, so I may also be doing any or all of those things in another city, state or country!

Pets:

My house has always had a dog in it. My first dog was a Beagle mix named Chuckie. Then I grew attached to my grandma's mutt so she gave him to me as a present. He wouldn't leave my side. He passed away on April Fool's Day and on that same day, my current pup was born! He's a miniature Dachshund names Nathan (Yes, like the hot dogs!) and he's the sweetest little thing. I've also owned birds, hamsters, and fish but nothing really beats having a dog of my own

Favorite Animal:

I really love lions, elephants and flamingos. Lions because of their bravery, elephants because we both have a great memory, and flamingos because we're both vibrant and colorful!

Favorite Thing About Pet Sitting:

I absolutely love the pets I get to watch. I've been an animal lover all my life and have always wanted to own as many dogs as possible. How can you decide when there's millions of different puppy dog eyes staring at you?! Easy. Become a pet sitter. So many of them have stolen my heart and I really do love them and care for them as if they were my own! You have great dogs and I have a big heart!

Favorite Song/Lyric:

"Let the pain remind you hearts can heal" - Paramore, 'Hate to See Your Heart Break'

Hidden Talent:

I wish I had a cool hidden talent to show off to people! I do enjoy singing and playing guitar but I don't really hide that. However, I am really good at making desserts and candies disappear in thin air!

When I'm Not Pet Sitting, I'm:

Always working. I have two other jobs as well as pet sitting to keep myself busy! But on my free time I love to go pin trading at Downtown Disney with my boyfriend, catch up with old friends, and read books.

 

Amber

Pets:

I have the best tuxedo cat ever! I grew up with the best Golden Retriever ever, who is now passed over the Rainbow Bridge.

Favorite Animal:

Favorite Thing About Pet Sitting:

Getting to know the unique personalities and quirks of every new pet. Cuddling isn't so bad, either! I also probably enjoy fetch more than the dogs do.

Favorite Song/Lyric:

Three Flights Down - Yellowcard

Hidden Talent:

Remembering ALL the lyrics to 90s music (Nsync forever) & reciting the movies Hocus Pocus and Mean Girls line by line. Clearly I'm putting my memory to good use.

When I'm Not Pet Sitting, I'm:

Going to school at SPC, visiting Disney World, or watching Netflix with my cat.

Val

Pets:

My first dog was a pit bull mix named Max. He was clam, cute and lived till the age of 18. The second dog that I had was named Randy. She was a loveable dachshund with long red hair. She was extremely protective, which was adorable because of her size. My current dog is named Jack and he is my child! He is a basset hound mix who looks like a forever puppy. I also have a black cat named Kitty. Kitty is a cute, but feisty little cat. She loves the laser pointer and Jacks tail. I have always had animals in my life and it is such a blessing. 

Favorite Animal:

I honestly cannot pick just one animal, but I can name a couple of animals. I love dogs, cats, monkeys and lemurs. 

Favorite Thing About Pet Sitting:

I love spending time with any animal and learning what type of personality they have. I enjoy playing games with them and cuddling!

Favorite Song/Lyric:

 GZA and Sweet Valley - "Planetary Energy" 

Hidden Talent:

I love art and I am pretty good at creating realist drawings and paintings. 

When I'm Not Pet Sitting, I'm:

Going to St. Petersburg college, working for my AA in general biology. If I am not at school I am either at work or with my family or boyfriend.

Then there is Kekoa, a mischievous black rescue cat.

Pets:

As far as family dogs go, I grew up with Shana, a German Shepard mix and Libby, a Lab-mix! When I was young, Shane was my 'horse' to ride in Cowboys and Indians and my sled dog when I played "Balto". She was such a loyal and patient pup with two small kids in the house. We had Libby when I was a little older and she was a RASCAL!. She loved to play "Catch me if you can" when she would get out the front door and always loved a good butt rub. She was also a con-artist when it came to stealing food. 

During my senior year of college, I decided to bless my parents with a 'grand-dog-child' named Charlie (aka Charles Barkley aka CharChar aka Sweet Girl). She is now a 4-year old  black lab mix and is the sweetest, most loyal pup I could ever ask for! My 60 pound, very hairy, black lab thinks she is a lap dog, LOVES to play fetch and could swim for hours. 

Favorite Animal: 

Dolphins! Side note: I always wanted to be a dolphin trainer growing up! 

Favorite thing about pet sitting:

Getting to know all the pup's fun and unique personalities!! So much love, kisses and laughs to give! 

Favorite song or lyric: 

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us And the world will be as one - Imagine - John Lennon

Hidden Talent:

I am so boring when it comes to secret, hidden talents... I cant sing, dance, or touch my tongue to my nose. I do love to cook and can make a mean Mediterranean pasta!! 

When I am not pet sitting I'm:

Reading books, catching up on my TV shows, cooking, being outside, dreaming and planning all my worldly adventures! 

 

Pets:

My family has always had pets, both in my childhood and adulthood. There have been a variety of pets at times, including fish, birds, and a snake, but we have always had dogs. As a child, my family had a German Shepherd named, Velvet, a German Shepherd named Frisky, and a poodle named Pom-Pom. After I got married we got a Bichon Frise named Tiffany who was with us when my first child was born and they became best friends. When Tiffany passed, we got two dogs to replace the emptiness in our hearts... a miniature schnauzer named Roxy and a Maltese named Zoe. Roxy and Zoe helped us make our transition from New Jersey to Florida in 2000. Roxy and Zoe have since left us to pass over that Rainbow bridge. We now have two miniature schnauzers, Theo and Emma who have been with us now for about 8 years, and a fairly new addition, Timmy, a poodle mix who was a foster dog that we adopted from Suncoast Animal League, where I spend a lot of time volunteering. Often, we also have one or two foster dogs living with us and sometimes family member's dogs stay with when they travel, such as my grand-dogs, Conan and Madden, who are also miniature schnauzers and my nephew, Skippy, who is a min pin chihuahua. So, I am pretty much always happily surrounded by dogs!

Favorite Animal:

Well, I guess I would have to say DOGS! But I truly love all animals. Some other favorites that come to mind horses, dolphins, pelicans, and sloths!

Favorite Thing About Pet Sitting:

It is joyful, relaxing, and rewarding. “Animals are such agreeable friends ― they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms." ― George Eliot

Favorite Song/Lyric:

“Let It Be” - Paul McCartney

Hidden Talent:

I am aware of some strengths and skills, but no real “talent” per se... at least not that I have discovered! I am creative and like to draw and paint. I studied martial arts for awhile and achieved red belt status. I like to sing and I thought I was pretty good until I was out one night and tried karaoke and realized I was a terrible singer!

When I'm Not Pet Sitting, I'm:

I am spending time with my family, friends and pets. I also spend time gardening and landscaping. I spend a lot of time volunteering at Suncoast Animal League. If I am not doing any of those, I am in New Jersey visiting my grandson!

Pets:

I’ve always had a pet for as long as I can remember. Currently I have a cat. His name is Brody and he’s the sweetest, most playful cat I could ever ask for.

Favorite Animal:

Kangaroo! They’re my favorite because although they look sweet they’re not afraid to put up a fight when needed

Favorite Thing About Pet Sitting:

I love playing and interacting with the pets I watch, I especially like when they decide they want to cuddle with me. Animals are the best cuddlers!

Favorite Song/Lyric:

 “Be strong in the Lord and never give up hope. You’re gonna do great things I already know God’s got his hand on you so don’t live life in fear. Forgive and forget but don’t forget why you’re here. Take your time and pray.” - Sidewalk Prophets

Hidden Talent:

Dancing. It’s not really a hidden talent but I enjoy doing it!

When I'm Not Pet Sitting, I'm:

Working, volunteering with the humane society, or sometimes driving around neighborhoods that have the really nice big houses and dream build. I love getting ideas for the house & lifestyle I want one day.
