Summer- {Charleston Pet Sitting & Dog Walking}

SUMMER! yes, boy is it summer! It’s HOT, june is almost over, and we are in hurricane season! Yikes!

I just thought I’d do a little post today b/c it’s been a while. We are still at it, visiting your fur kids, staying busy, and gearing up for the holiday coming up! Yep, Independence day is coming, do you have your reservations for your furry pals? I hope so!

I found these quotes today and they are some of my favorites, so I thought I’d post them here to brighten your day:

They’re from one of my favorite books by Shauna Niequest called ‘Cold Tangerines’:

“We could just live our normal, day-to-day lives, saving all the good living up for someday, but I think today, just plain today is worth it….When I live purposefully and well, when I dance instead of sitting it out, when I let myself laugh hard, when I wear my favorite shoes on a regular Tuesday, that regular Tuesday is better”….

“I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud. And I don’t want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even, and realize that my life is a collection of meetings and pop cans and errands and receipts and dirty dishes. I want to eat cold tangerines and sing loud in the car with the windows open and wear pink shoes and stay up all night laughing and paint my walls the exact color of the sky right now. I want to sleep hard on clean white sheets and throw parties and eat ripe tomatoes and read books so good they make me jump up and down and I want my everyday to make God belly laugh, glad that he gave life to someone who loves the gift, who will use it up and wring it out and drag it around like a favorite sweater”…..shauna niequist

Have a great rest of the summer and don’t delay when booking care for your precious pets! Remember, A Tail Waggin’ Good Time, because your pets deserve it!!

Charleston Handmade Dog Collars & T-shirts-{Charleston Pet Sitter & Dog Walker}

Hello everyone!

I believe I’m long overdue for a post!!

Hope you’re having a great saturday! We are a bit slow this weekend on the pet sitting side, but have a few cat sits on the schedule and an event tomorrow!

I hope you’ll all consider coming out to Parks & Paws tomorrow at St. Andrews Park on Playground Road. It’s from 11-2. There will be lots of cool things happening and I’ll be there with my dog collars and t-shirts!!

If you’re in the market for a new collar for your furry pal, look no further! I’ve got lots of great designs to choose from and you can shop HERE! Each collar is made right here in Charleston by me! GO LOCAL!!! I hand sew them all and make sure they are super duper sturdy for your furry pals! Lots of my ribbons are beach themed and/or will remind you of the lowcountry. I also make super cute custom message collars! I have lots of phrases to choose from or you can create your own! You can get any of these phrases on a collar or dog t-shirt!

Below are some photos of the collars I make. Make sure you go check them all out in my etsy shop!

I’ll do a whole post about this soon, but the 3rd collar pictured below will be featured in CITY DOG MAGAZINE! Pretty cool huh? They contacted me recently to feature it in their cool products section for Spring 2012, so be on the lookout! As soon as I have a pdf to show it to you in print, I’ll be sure to post it!

I hope to make some for you soon! Now go enjoy this beautiful Charleston Weekend!

Happy Birthday To YOU-Charleston Pet Sitter{west ashley}

I can’t believe it’s time to post this, but  it has been FOUR whole years this month that A Tail Waggin’ Good Time opened it’s doors for business.  It just makes me so happy to say that! I can still remember my very first consultation and being so nervous, but feeling so giddy afterwards knowing that it was truly officially starting! With my business magnet on my little honda civic, I cruised ALL OVER Charleston doing pet sits everywhere I could! I quickly learned that I was NOT super woman and I could not cover all of Charleston by myself, even in that honda civic. A few years later, a little boy added to my life, and help hired, I’m still at it, just with some wonderful help to pick up some of the load. My helper Amy has been with me since August of 2010 and I’ve never had such great help! She is always available and ready to fill up her schedule with wet kisses and wagging tails! I’m so thankful for her. Nikki is also a new addition and was actually a previous client!  I always said old clients would make some of the best help b/c for one, they’re already animal lovers, right?

So thank you clients for helping A Tail Waggin’ Good Time to keep on truckin’! We love to visit your pets everyday and while you’re getting some time away on vacation and we look forward to many more years serving you.

Here we go year five! Let it begin!

Bootsie!-Charleston Pet Sitting & Dog Walking

Meet Bootsie!

She’s a mess. She’s rambunctious. She’s cute, sweet, silly, and so very friendly! She loves to ‘talk’, I mean bark bark and bark, but you’ve gotta love her. She’s a lot of dog in a small package.

Took some photos of her after our midday walk and wanted to share. I can’t believe I got her sitting still long enough for the pics. Check her out and all of her cuteness…
