We know our community is full of happy tales - we often hear about owners and sitters who became friends after meeting through a sit, or how through house sitting they were finally able to reconnect with friends/family abroad in the knowledge their pets are safe and happy at home.
So, we wanted to find out - do you have an interesting or heartwarming story to share from a sit? Ever made a friendship through a sit, or perhaps your pet has ‘hosted’ lots of sitters - let’s not forget about the story of Milo, who made the local press headlines after **racking up an international fanbase
In 2013 I went to LA to meet and sit a little Shih tzu x for the first time, “Make sure you stop by the house to “introduce” yourselves” Eileen’s plea to her neighbours, I was her first sitter and (understandably)she was a little nervous.
She was leaving for 3 wks in Israel, I was coming from my home in Vancouver it was the first time she’d left Stella.
I returned to sit Stella many times and visit as family. We shared that little girl’s love during her life and when Eileen lost her, all too soon, we were able to connect in a way only someone who has shared a pet, like their own can.
It was such a comfort to Eileen, to us both.
When I fly into LA who is waiting for me at the airport? Eileen. I am a fully fledge member of the Cohen - Swartz family all because of a little dog called Stella
I could write reams about our friendship and our future hopes and plans but I’m sure you didn’t sit down to read a book.
