Sounds like a great service Margaret.

Whenever we leave one of our kids comes over to keep an eye on the pets and the home.

Having someone come to your home to take care of pets is a luxury for pets.  Dallas pet sitters who stay in the home are in demand!

 Good Saturday morning Margaret. It does sound like a great service. We do not have any pets, however I do know a lot of people who do.

We've used similar services here in Charlotte, Margaret. So much nice for our 4-legged family members than being moved out of their homes and routines. (Something I would do if I ever retire.)

Good morning Margaret,

We generally have a sitter that comes over to take care of ours.

It would be nice if a certain daughter and son-in-law would return the favor!

Make yourself a great day.

Good morning Margaret. My personal preference is to take my gang to a professional camp where I know they will be pampered and cared for. That said if you know these folks that is a viable option I guess.

That sounds like a great service, as I know of people that don't travel much because they don't know what they would do with their pets when they are gone.

My two cats are the primary concern while I travel.  Fortunately, I have family who usually take very good care of them and my home.

We don't have any pets right now because of our hectic schedules. We don't think it woud be fair to them to be gone all the time. One day though, we will give it a try.
