Hello! I am Yvonne. When I am not walking dogs, I am an operational meteorologist for the U.S. Air Force. I moved back home to the Wilmington, DE area about 5 years ago after serving in San Diego, Boise, and the Seattle area. I love all animals. While I do admit that cats were my first love, it was not until 2004 when I got my first dog, a pug named Monster, and I became a dog person. After Monster, I rescued another pug from a shelter. His name was Budda. They have since passed. Currently I own a Bedlington Terrier named Payton. I have no children, so she is my "baby" and love of my life. Aside from owning dogs, I have had various roommates that owned dogs, Labs and Corgis. I have volunteered with shelters and pug rescues across the country. I worked part time at Fetch as a dog walker/pet sitter in Boise, ID. I love to run and be outdoors so dog walking is perfect for me. I am very excited to meet you and your wonderful pets!
