Let’s Talk Hurricanes- {charleston dog walking and pet sitting}

Hello Charleston!

Well, it’s August and that means it’s time to post about hurricanes. I don’t even want to mention that word, but we’re getting into the active part of the season and I thought I would post some reminders.

 Plain and simple….Prepare yourself!  Don’t wait until there’s something brewing in the atlantic to get your hurricane kit ready. Pick up a couple extra jugs of water, trailmix, granola, crackers, batteries, etc. at the grocery store next time you’re there and put them in a bin for safe keeping.

For your pets, buy an extra bag of their dog food/treats, medication, etc. to last in case you can’t get out and about. Also buy a box of puppy pads in case your furry pal can’t go outside…or won’t! Have their crate handy and store all of these things in there for safe keeping. It’s also a good idea to know where their rabies tags are in case you need to evacuate and show these whereever you stay.

The good thing about hurricanes is that we know they are coming in advance and we CAN prepare. You can never be too careful so just be smart, plan ahead and don’t ever think it can’t happen where you live!

Enjoy the rest of summer…fall will be here before we know it!

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!!

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!
