Laurie: Dog Walker and Pet Sitter
I am originally from Hialeah, Florida, but have lived in St. Petersburg since I was five-years-old. I retired from the St.Petersburg Times (Tampa Bay Times) in 2007 after nearly 30 years as a Database Editor in the News Library.After reinventing myself I began a companionship business for the elderly, but decided I needed to subsidize my income with something else. I have always loved animals, of ALL kinds and always had dogs and cats throughout my life. Today I (along with my daughter) have several of each and a snake. I started with Calling All Dogs in May, 2016 and enjoy it tremendously. I treat my clients' pets as if they were my own and feel I have a special rapport with my regular fur friends, including a guinea pig named Nutmeg. In fact, I have told several of my regulars that if they ever have to re-home their pet(s), I'll take 'em!
