The above applies to Shiranians, too! Like our little friend, Butch.

(For the unfamiliar, Shiranians are a Shih Tzu/Pomeranian mix breed.)

He Is My Other Eyes That Can See Above The Clouds…

“He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds. He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him. (I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.) When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another man. With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant. His head on my knee can heal my human hurts. His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me… whenever… wherever – in case I need him. And I expect I will – as I always have. He is just my dog.” ~ Gene Hill

Sniff Seattle: Exceptional Seattle Pet Sitting For The Holidays

Thanksgiving is coming fast. Christmas and Hanukkah, too. And I can personally tell you that a lot of people are looking for pet sitters in Seattle. Pet sitting is a great solution if you’re planing to go out-of-town for the holidays and can’t bring your fur baby with you.

My phone’s been ringing a whole bunch the last few weeks. And yes, this is a service we provide at Sniff Seattle Dog Walkers!

Sniff Seattle’s pet sitting services are designed so your dog or cat can enjoy the comfort of their own home while you’re away. We make two or three “house calls” a day to feed and walk them. That way they can stick to their normal feeding routine, and get all the exercise, playtime and loving attention they’re used to.

Naturally, we take care of any water refreshing or clean-up at your house that may be needed. Plus, we’re skilled at administering any medication your pet may be taking, if needed.

Finally, we understand there might be a few things around the house you would like to have done while you’re away. So as part of the comprehensive service we love doing for you, if you want, we can bring in the newspaper, mail or any packages; water plants; and rotate the lights or blinds. Whatever needs to be done.

We want you to have complete peace-of-mind during your time away! If you’re looking for exceptional pet sitting at an affordable price, check the services page on our website and give me a call.

I’m not sure about the “science” (if any) behind this quote. But I can verify that most of my dogs seem to believe it!
