and her Pets
If I Didn't Have a Dog... OR CAT......
I could walk around the yard barefoot in safety.
My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated.
All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars would be free of hair.
When the doorbell rings, it wouldn't sound like a kennel.
When the doorbell rings, I could get to the door without wading through fuzzy bodies who beat me there.
I could sit on the couch and my bed the way I wanted, without taking into consideration how much space several fur bodies would need to get comfortable.
I would have money and no guilt to go on a real vacation.
I would not be on a first-name basis with 6 veterinarians, as I put their yet unborn grand kids through college.
The most used words in my vocabulary would not be: out, sit, down, come, no, stay, and leave him/her/it ALONE.
My house would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates or barriers.
I would not talk 'baby talk'. 'Eat your din din'. 'Yummy yummy for the tummy'.
My house would not look like a day care center, toys everywhere.
My pockets would not contain things like poop bags, treats and an extra leash.
I would no longer have to spell the words
F-R-I-S-B-E- E, W-A-L-K, T-R-E-A-T, B-I-K-E, G-O,
I would not have as many leaves INSIDE my house as outside.
I would not look strangely at people who think having ONE dog/cat ties them down too much.
I'd look forward to spring and the rainy season instead of dreading 'mud' season.
I would not have to answer the question 'Why do you have so many animals?'
from people who will never have the joy in their lives of knowing they are loved unconditionally by someone as close to an angel as they will ever get.
How EMPTY my life would be!!
Jennifer lives in Milliken, Colorado. She grew up knowing that her love for animals was going to rule her future and it certainly has! She started volunteering at the St. Louis Humane Society at age 12.
38 years later, she still has the strong love for all animals and has been working with animals all this time. She received her Associate of Applied Science Degree in Animal Health Technology in 1980. She has had the pleasure of working locally with a clinic that works with large and small animals, exotic and wildlife.
In Columbus, OH she worked at her dream job...training dogs for the blind at Pilot Dogs, Inc. She was a Senior Trainer/Instructor; Senior Veterinary Technician; Director of the Puppy Program; and Director of the Breeding Program. She did this for 13 years and then moved to South Carolina with her husband to build their own boarding kennel.
In 2002, she moved back to Colorado. She loves all animals and enjoys all the time with them. She doesn't like hissing cockroaches and large centipedes, though, but luckily only her oldest sister owns a couple of these for her classroom! LOL
She has fostered numerous animals that were orphaned, abandoned or given up. She has a true passion for this work and always looks forward to the next animal needing her care.
She is able to work with any schedule needed for pet sitting, even Holidays and weekends.
She'd like to introduce her pets to you:
