While I love animals overall, my heart holds a special place for dogs. Especially after giving my own dog away, prior to moving to a new state. The current lease for the apartment i occupy doesn't allow any pets, so i love having the opportunity to interact with dogs in a capacity that helps the owner, dog, and my dog-less self. A little about me: I love cooking, diy home improvement projects, and looking at newly added puppies on breeder websites. :P My employment history includes over 15 years in the client service industry and 8 years in ecommerce. I'd prefer to find passive income doing work that lifts my spirits, maintains my inner peace, and advocates a healthier life balance. If any of my skills deem valuable, I have high speed Internet and can work from home. When interacting with dogs, I tend to regard them as furry children, speaking in an upbeat tone and displaying physical affection. However I totally understand that no 2 dogs respond in the same manner, so I'm flexible to adjust my approach, as necessary.
