Being a dog walker is one of the greatest careers in the world. What could be better than walking around in the beautiful San Diego weather day after day with the greatest animals on the planet. In fact, I love my job so much I can hardly believe I get paid to do it. Doggy kisses, wagging tails, and plenty of exercise. What could be better?
There really is only one downside to my job. That is when one of my regular dog walking clients moves away and I have to say good-bye. I get very attached to my four-legged friends when I see them day after day. I rub their bellies and they lick my face. We really become quite close.So it is always a sad day when I have to say so long after the last walk.
Living in San Diego I have several clients in the military and military people get transferred so saying good-bye happens a lot more than I would like.
Today I said a fond farewell to Daphney and Osgoode. They were two of my first clients when I started my business two and a half years ago. They are moving to Virginia. I will miss them terribly but wish them lots of luck in their new home. Here is a picture of our last farewell.
