Our jobs as dog walkers and pet sitters at Tails on Trails is based on taking care of pets whose owners aren’t able to at the time. This is because they are out of town or unable to be home to care for their pets for one reason or the other.
We do our best to get to know each pet well, to provide them with comfort in the absence of their owner. It’s always nice when we can tell that the pets are happy to see us. But at the end of the day, we know that the pets are waiting for their owners.
For our clients who are taking a day trip or visiting family out of town, their pets get to see them as soon as they come back.
But for those who are making the ultimate sacrifice for our country, they are separated from their pets for much longer, facing much more dangerous conditions serving our nation.
On this Memorial Day, we would like to commemorate the ultimate sacrifice our men and women in uniform make. Thank you to everyone who has served our country!
