Describing ones self always sounds so forced. I have included references so that you might get a more complete idea. I'm outgoing, conscientious, mature, ethical, reliable, well educated, creative, and honest. I enjoy the arts, I volunteer for Habitat for Humanity around the world as well as for several local concerns, and I'm sure you will understand one of the reasons why I want to house sit when you notice where I live (and own my own home): Buffalo, NY.  My past love of snow and cold has dissipated and the unexpected loss of my last family member has encouraged me to seek winter warmth and sunshine and live as fully as I can.  I have missed my dogs and cats and would love to shower one or two with love. I look forward to taking the creative risk of a new location in a walkable, bike-able area and being of service.

I am looking to be of service to others, love a dog(s) and/or cat(s) in a walkable/bikeable area with a winter climate warmer than Buffalo, NY.  Yes, I have done dog and cat sitting not only for friends here in Western New York, but also in New York City, Idaho, and Denver. The recommendation letter from canine judge, Kim Alexander Thomson included in this profile should help explain. I have also cared for summer homes on the Canadian Lake Shore. I grew up with large dogs,(standard poodles and setters) two at a time, loved it and miss it!  Because busy schedules of my adult life could not allow the time necessary to properly care for dogs, I have had two cats since then, each for twenty glorious years. Yup!

I bring ethics, honesty, and trustworthiness, common sense, neighborliness, and of course love and care to our four-legged friends.  As a home owner myself, I am keenly aware of not only the necessity of  daily and long term upkeep, but also the value of a good neighbor. My easy-going nature and outgoing optimism has not only brought me closer to my neighbors, but also helped maintain a strong community. We laugh, saying that we look out for each other, but we don't drink out of each other's bowls. I look forward to helping to do that for you as well as lovin' your pets while you are away.  Oh! I don't smoke. Never have.

Margo is wonderful. She really got to know our two cats. We asked for daily updates/photos and she was great about keeping in touch. The house was in great shape when we returned home. 

Communication throughout the process was excellent.

Everything we hoped for.
