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 & Allen Stone

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 that 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 whether 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 love to travel, so I may also be doing any or all of those things in another city, state or country!

 I grew up with an amazing dachshund beagle mix named Butch and am now lucky enough to have Brody, a 12-year-old long hair Chihuahua, in my life!

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.

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

Pets:

I grew up with golden retrievers... so I when I saw a handsome two year old Goldie on petfinder.com almost five years ago, I went to get him the next day! I also rescued the gorgeous girl in the picture with me— her name is Zelda and she’s three (and a bit bigger now) 😊

Dogs. Always have been, always will be. Apparently as a child, I used to tell anyone who would listen that I wanted to BE a dog when I grew up. Dog sitter is close enough!
