Picture Post!

Momma's handsome boys, Baxter (left) and Charlie, snuggling with Daddy on the right. for my pet sitting pictures from this past weekend.
Mr. Toby.  An elderly insulin patient and such a good chap this boy is.

Insert random selfie shots... LOL.....This is the new Lululemon outfit..... Too dark but whatever. The pants are the laser-cut crops I bought last week that I put on the blog.

  Luca, a beautiful blue/brindle Cane Corso.  I just adore this big baby.  Man is he ever strong though.  My boss and I both agree that we always feel safe when we have Luca.
Here, he's coming in for a sloppy kiss lol....

 Now here's an unusual and rare cat called the Turkish Van... His name is Midas and is he ever an affectionate, chatty cat-in-a-dog suit kitty.
A bit of history on the breed (taken from Wikipedia:
The Turkish Van is a semi-long-haired breed of domestic cat, which was developed in the United Kingdom from a selection of cats obtained from various cities of modern Turkey, especially Turkish Kurdistan .[1]:112 The breed is rare,[2] and is distinguished by the van pattern (named for the breed), where the colour is restricted to the head and the tail, and the rest of the cat is white;[2] this is due to the expression of the piebald white spotting gene, a type of partial leucism.[3]:148 A Turkish Van may have blue or amber eyes, or be odd-eyed (having one eye of each colour). The breed has been claimed to be descended from the landrace of usually all-white Van cats (Turkish: Van kedisi), mostly found near Lake Van,[2] though one of the two original breeders' own writings indicate clearly that none of the breed's foundation cats came from the Van area.[1]:114[4]
Then called the Turkish Cat, the breed was first recognised as such by a breeder/fancier organisation, the UK-based Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF), in 1969.[1]:113 It was later renamed "Turkish Van" to better distinguish it from the Turkish Angora breed. The term "Turkish Vankedisi" is used by some organisations as a name for all-white specimens of the formal Turkish Van breed,[5] nomenclature easily confused with the Van kedisi landrace cats, which are also often all-white.


Miss Zoe... What a sweet and gentle soul.

Miss Abby.  She is a Goldendoodle and she lives with Maggie, a mini-labradoodle and a scruff of a looking dog, aptly named Scruffy.  Abby was such a ham, glued to my leg the entire time I was at her home.

 Even though it looks like the same dog, this is Nellie.  Such a ham-bone this girl.  All she wants to do is for you to take her outside so she can roll in the grass (or snow, whichever) and just enjoy life and sniff the fresh air. 
This is one of Nellie's housemates.  He's ALWAYS in his basket in a sunbeam every time that I'm there.

Here's Scruffy.  And Miss Abby.
The pic on the right, the smaller of the two black dogs, THAT'S Scruffy.  :)  And what was fun about this household was that it was cold and miserable out but they all loved going outside and then coming back in and getting dried off and being silly.

 Don't I look less than thrilled, all cold-looking and shit? LOL


  1. Oh my gosh I love all the puppy pics, they're all so cute!

    1. Thanks hun! I work a corporate job Monday to Friday and do pet sitting/dog walking part time weekends and it's the best job ever. So much so that I don't even consider it a job, it's fun. It's not always glamorous but nothing makes me smile more than walking through the door and seeing an animal happy to see you :)
