I am at a time of my life that I have decided to do something I enjoy. I love dogs and I like to walk. Best combination for this job. I have had dogs all my life - at times 2. I now have a 4 year old Boston Beagle mix. At times I take care of my son's Hound mix. Dogs bring joy to my life. Caring for someone's pet is a big responsibility.
