There is a first time for everything! Leaving your pet with a sitter….

bucket_03I was just reading this Facebook post in one of the Italian Greyhound groups I’m a member of and it inspired me to write about the same topic here.  You probably aren’t aware that both Seth and I are Italian Greyhound fanatics – we are, we would fit into the category of crazy pet parents – covering up the little dudes, hand feeding if necessary, shoveling a path through the snow to the iJill_01deal furkid potty spot so they don’t have to walk through the snow, all of the above and more.

One of the reasons, maybe the main reason we decided to start North Metro Pet Services is because we feel this way about pets.  We had such trouble finding quality, consistent care for our furkids and it was unbelievably stressful to take a vacation, go away for the weekend, travel for work or even go to a one day race event to watch one of our good friends race.   I don’t think we’ve told you this – we’re crazy pet parents – we understand how you build little blanket beds for your dogs or make special breakfasts for them on Thanksgiving or stress out over leaving them with a stranger.  We get it!  We want to help make the leaving them witbucket_jill_05h a stranger less stressful for you and for your furkids.

It’s a busy time of year, maybe you’re traveling and taking the furs with you, maybe you’re lucky and get to stay home or maybe you’re wishing the holidays would just be over already and want to get back to regular life and work hours.  This time of year we’re feeling grateful that we’ve gotten to meet many of your furkids and super happy that we’ve been there for you when you’ve had emergency trips for family, unplanned long days at work, when you broke your leg and your lab was going crazy – we were super happy to come take him for a run every day.  We want to thank you for trusting us with our pets this year (wow, it’s really only been two months) and we can’t wait to meet more of them in 2016!!  bucket_08

From our home to yours, have a fabulous holiday and a happy new year!  We can’t wait to meet you and your furkid in 2016!
