I've been living with animals my entire life. Most recently, with Reyka, a six-year-old Staffordshire terrier. I'm retired and she is my constant companion - we're like Red and Rover, from the comics. We walk the CA trails, and hike county and state parks. Wincopin is a favorite. Last summer I started volunteering at Howard County Animal Control, the local dog and cat shelter. I love it. I exercise and socialize the dog and cats so they're better prepared for their forever home. I've worked with literally hundreds of dogs of all sizes. More than one person has said "that dog really loves you" to me. It is so rewarding to help a family pick out a new pet and watch as they take it home. I have experience with a professional dog walking service. They taught me to do the little things - refilling water, cleaning up small messes even if I didn't make them, turning on/off lights to welcome you home, etc. I can scoop/change cat litter. I can give insulin shots to dogs and cats.
