|Vera & Avon hanging out with the dog sitter|
But not so long ago things were not so simple as I did not have the means to pay for these invaluable helpers. So this is just a reminder, sometimes it takes a village to raise a puppy. If you have a friend with limited means with a pet, and you have a ability to help out with occasional walks or overnight stays--please consider making the offer. (Of course make sure you can pet sit safety and the dog is non-aggressive and vaccinated etc). You might be lessening a huge source of stress for your friend or neighbor.
