dog walker

Samantha, the Pit Bull Terrier/Shitzu mix rescue, who was a very sick puppy (part 5)

“Since having Sam, the most difficult and yet comforting time, was when my boyfriend went to rehab.

I was on my own as a new dog mom and all the responsibility was mine.

As a full time student, I hired a dog walker (even though I work part time as a dog walker).

I needed help while I was at school.

At the same time, she was a great comfort to come home to.”

Teddy, the show stopper

“Teddy has been a phenomenal dog.

I took another dog first, but I couldn’t train him.

I got a trainer, and the trainer brought the dog back after one day and said, “this dog can’t be trained.”

Teddy is a show stopper on the street. Everyone wants to pet him.

One guy wanted to borrow him to pick up chicks.

He became an instant celebrity with the New York Times publicity.

People who knew us called from all over, even California.

They said, “he’s a celebrity.” Of course those people were from Beverly Hills.

But, don’t let Teddy fool you.

He may look warm and fuzzy, but he is a ferocious watch dog. It’s his nature.

The nomads used Tibetan Terriers as guard dogs for their cattle.

They have a keen sense of smell and hearing. Above and beyond the average dog.”

Bob, the walker

FullSizeRenderGeorgia practically lives with me, but she’s not mine.  She loves me and I love her.

The Dr. told me I have to walk, and I walk with her.

I wasn’t able to walk at all, I was in the hospital for three weeks from my sciatica, but, I got up to walk her.

I meet people all the time with her.  If I have a dog with me, they say hello, without Georgia, no-one says, hello.

She is stubborn and delicate at the same time.

If she poops in the house, she rolls her eyes, and says, that wasn’t me.

Summer is sun and winter is snow.  She loves them both.

She knows, she has to be good for her treats.

She doesn’t like chicken, but she loves lamb.
