Description:

I’m a retired executive with a life long passion for dogs, cats and horses. I bred, raised and trained Connemara ponies, had my own farm, and have been a foster home for golden retrievers as well as an owner of many labs, retrievers and dear little mitts.   I am appreciative and respectful of good and valued things, from the heirlooms of my family to the mundane but intensely sentimental things that are part of a family home with animals:  the favorite toy, the right blankie etc. Having beaten cancer recently, I find my energy baseline has changed, and instead of pet sitting for friends here and there I’d like to do it as a lighter career. I will also be seeking assignments where I have friends and family nearby to enjoy!  I’m also the mom of a college student and have the time to extend TLC to your precious pets and private home. Changed read more
