Most pet owners eventually find ourselves in a situation where pet needs and human needs do not mesh. I must be gone for long hours for several weeks, and I cannot set my schedule at all. Darling Doggy cannnot stay out in the rain or heat for all those hours. So what elegant solution can I find to that dilemma? David Shaw, a longtime neighborhood volunteer buddy of mine, owns a pet service in our area (walkthepaw.com). With a call, I arranged for my dog to be walked, to play catch, to earn treats, and generally to receive good company and care while I was unavailable. Some days I asked for extra help or help at the last minute. I’ve known David to be a good guy for years, but for people who don’t know him, he is bonded and insured. Best of all, he’s an animal lover and as is careful with our four footers as we would hope! Thank you, David for the excellent care you give my Doggy!
