Pet Owner in Willoughby
We live on a quite street with Invisible Fence. Great harmony in the house between the pets. Dogs don't leave the yard and are trained to ring bells when they want to go out and come up to door when they are ready to come in. All friendly, well-behaved and calm when in the house. Yellow lab male, Black lab mix female, and Hairless Chinese Crested male. The Crested is 100% blind, but otherwise healthy other than poor dentition (characteristic of a 13 year hairless), therefore, halitosis :(. The labs are about 3 weeks apart in age and have been together since they were under 1 year - they are now 5. We have 3 indoor cats who are friendly & affectionate and super low maintenance. Cats & dogs get along beautifully. 2 Hamsters who require minimal care with just dropping in a treat or extra food every couple days. My goldfish is Bellyflop and has been with us since I rescued him from a wedding reception centerpiece over 3 years ago. He is large and will jump out of the tank if the lid is not on...we learned by example when my husband found him on the kitchen floor early one morning with the cat standing over him...he has survived multiple freak accidents since he was saved from the drunk man swallowing live goldfish that memorable night. We live in Willoughby Hills and have PTSD from the last overnight sitter we found on the dreaded Craigslist. Our dogs, in particular Benny, the gentle most wonderful giant lab, who was not the same dog for about 3 weeks. He was skinny and notably traumatized from most likely being locked in his crate down the basement, possibly for days at a time. The crates were always down the basement and the dogs would feel comfortable napping in them when we were not home - the doors always left open and never, ever locked in them. To this day, few years later, Benny does not feel comfortable going down the basement. The sitter lived a little too far from us and we feel she never intended to sleep at our house as promised and therefore, the commute farther then we would have liked, probably made it easy to "forget" about our pets. We know there are true animal lovers out there who are honest & responsible, looking to care for our furry family members while we are away. It is the easiest job ever, probably the most challenging part would be feeling comfortable in a strangers home, Oscar's (Chinese crested) bad breath & having to actually carry him out to the grass to relieve himself (the other dogs are self-sufficient), and finding the right movie to watch on Netflix. If you think this is the challenge for you, please let us know! Thank you!
