Resident Pets

Reggie is a gray Wire-Haired terrier that my family adopted from a shelter in 6th grade. He has been part of my family for so long I cannot imagine my life without him. He is a very smart dog! My other dog is Tony. I am really not sure what type of breed he is. He has the colorings and looks of a Yorkshire terrier but he is BIG. Like nearly 20 pounds!! He is about 4 years old, a total lap dog and likes to eat EVERYTHING even if it is not food.

What I Enjoy Most About My Job

The most recent job I had was delivering Amazon.com packages to customers in the Dallas area. I was there for a year until the company lost the account. What that job instilled in me is that I LOVE working outside. Guess what the absolute best part of that was? Getting to see all the dogs getting walked. I have always loved animals and would love to be in any field related to them in any way.

Funniest Pet Experience

My cat, Sisqo, refuses to put his face in a water dish. Instead, he prefers to dip out small sips of water with his paw and lick it off. It is the funniest thing! I really need to get a video of it for TV.

What Our Pet Friends Teach Us

I think pets can teach us forgiveness. If you have forgotten to play a game of catch one day and your dog is disappointed, you can always count on them to be eager the next day with a clean slate ready to let you make it up to them. They don’t count your mistakes and hold them against you.

Jamie’s clients say:

… We are very, very pleased with what we’ve seen of VIP so
far, and are OVERJOYED to have Jamie coming this weekend.

Our last pet-sitter was very capable, but lacked warmth and a willingness to
interact with our dogs (which was one of the biggest reasons we hired them
in the first place).

Our initial meeting with Jamie cheered us up right away, and
dispelled any doubts we might’ve had about changing to a new pet sitting
service. She was very affectionate with our dogs (and this affection was
reciprocated). She represented your company very well, and seems like a
very good fit for us.

… We are relieved now to have found in Jamie someone who genuinely wants to keep our dogs happy while we are gone, instead of merely keeping them fed and watered. Jamie’s visits, and the care she put into her work, were in sharp contrast to what we were used to. We were not used to getting text message updates, much less a request from Jamie to contact HER when we arrived back home to let her know the dogs were okay. All doubts vanished with Jamie’s first text message, and we knew our dogs were in good hands. And it sure made it easier to enjoy our weekend at the horse show. The peace of mind Jamie gave us is a debt not easily repaid, but that won’t stop us from trying.
