Hello, my name is Carole, and I have had several dogs come in and out of my life. Some have belonged to my family, others I've owned, and then there have been my friends pets. I have had the pleasure of pet sitting for an old family friend recently. I stayed there for one month, and took care of his two Maltese girls. All my pets are waiting for me on the other side of the rainbow bridge, and I miss them terribly. I'm living with my parents, and they have an elderly dog that I help take care of as well.
