|We Love Pets, Just Like You..|
As you may or may not know my son Marshall was recently diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive cancer. As you can imagine we are in a state of shock at this news. Marshall was fast tracked to chemotherapy treatments and has undergone three rounds (in hospital) at this point. He will undergo chemo, radiation and surgery in an effort kick this cancer's A#*!
Like many chemo patients he has lost his hair but not his dignity nor his fight to live. At just 25 years old he is young and strong and has a positive attitude which will undoubtedly help him through. Unfortunately like many these days he finds
himself without health insurance and now unable to work due to his strong chemo treatments. We have set up a gofundme account to help him with his medical and cost of living expenses.
Many of you have asked us how you can be of help. If you feel it in your heart here's how you can help...

WE ARE GROWING AND NEED PET SITTERS & DOG WALKERS
Are you nurturing your dog's fears?
Are you unknowingly encouraging the fear your dog is feeling?
When someone we know (friend, family member, co-worker, child even someone we don’t know) gets frightened of something, as humans our first impulse is to comfort them. We might tell them “everything will be ok” or “don’t worry about it”. We might put our arm around them, give them a hug, hold their hand, pat them or stroke their head, all in a effort to sooth them and make them feel better.

Why Hire a Professional Pet Sitter vs a Neighbor or Friend?
|THE HOLIDAYS ARE FAST APPROACHING! You've made plans to travel but who will care for your loved ones? I mean, the furry loved ones???|
Here is a true story about a family who left their dog in a care of a close family friend during the holidays. Like many other in
dividuals out there, they’ve had friends care for the house and pets before without problems. Their dog would be allowed to stay in the comfort of his own home and even though they didn’t have to pay for it they made sure to give their friend a nice gift for being there and for helping out.
