Ramblings of a pet sitter

Have you ever been in someone elses house when something goes wrong? I have and let me tell you it's scary. 

Petsitting is a love of mine as it means I get to spend some real quality time with the animals left in my care. I love finding out all the animals little quirks like the cat who liked to hang around on my shoulder as I cooked or the dog who would only sleep with my shoe. But my main goal of any petsitting is to make sure that the animals in my care have an amazing holiday-at-home whilst their owners are away.

So it's been a while, how's everyone doing?

These past few months a lot has changed in my life and a lot has stayed the same. I am no longer doing my A levels or working a ridiculous number of hours for no personal gain. I can officially say that I am at least 80% happier!

The main change right now is I get to spend a ridiculous amount of time cuddling dogs! I can say........    To Continue Readinc Click here.

Dog tags and micro chips.....

Most people seem to know that your dog needs to be micro chipped now - it's the law! But..... did you know that it is also a legal requirement that your dog have a dog tag giving your address? It is advised that this carries your phone number as well.  Setting aside the legal requiremnts for a second you should think about what is the fastest way to get your dog back and without a doubt that wold be if the first person who found him could ring you so at Stan's Pals we suggest EVERY dog should wear one of these great collars with your phone number embriodered on them.

Our new van

It's an exciting day for Stan's Pals today - our new van has been kitted out inside and will be used for the dog pickups this morning - don't tell them but there is also liver cake on board! Later todayit will disappear for signwriting but then it will be aregular sight around the Swad area :)

I think Skye was waiting for his turn lol.

Oscar the Westie

I had to show meveryone our little pal Oscar the Westie - his owner is on holiday and Oscar is 14 years young and loving life. He has been cared for by Tammy who has done as fantatic job giving him his twice daily insulin injections, giving out cuddles and managing his complex diet needs. The two are forming a real bond and Tammy is totally in love with her little man.

Doing a good thing while still dog walking ....

On Sept 3rd we are off on a dog walk with a difference and hope our friends will join us :) We are walking in support of Alzheimers society - raising funds and awareness. 

Have a look at the links and see what it is all about - our dogs are coming along as well.

Dog walking pals - Tommy and his friends

Dogs really do have very real friendships. My Tommy has lots and lots of friends but6 three of them are very special. First River, he adores him and haspplily trots along beside him on walks. Then Virgil, when his springer friend is groomed he sits and watches giving the odd whimper of concern. Last and most def not least is Buddy who he adores..... this was them on walkies today :)
