Drop off & Pick up times ;)

Hi all!

I know I have touched on this in the past, but felt with the upcoming BUSY season, I should mention it again, and that is Drop Off & Pick Up Times!

I wanted to explain to you all why I ask "what time will you be dropping off, and what time will you be picking up"?

As you all know, I am a "one man show", with exception to a couple of people here and there who will cover for me if I'm out.  With that being said, it is extremely important for me to know what time you will be arriving!  I like to call it "CROWD CONTROL" :).  Unlike the other bigger daycare and boarding places in our area, I don't have a "front lobby" where you can pick up or drop off peacefully, where there are usually no other dogs around.  Instead, I have a fenced yard where all of the dogs who are here will act like wild children when someone arrives (as I'm sure most of you have witnessed).  It is VERY EXCITING when people come, and I do my very best to keep things under control as much as possible, hence the reason I ask for a time of when you will arrive, in turn helping me to get dogs checked in or out as smoothly as possible.

Most of you are very good and will message me when you are on your way, which is deeply appreciated.  Some of you have set times, don't message, but arrive on time, which is also deeply appreciated.  I always ask, if you are going to be late, or need to be early, please message me so I can plan your arrival accordingly.  As much as I like to use the term "ish", it truly doesn't work for me here.  I really do need to have a set time to make life smoother.

Hopefully this helps to answer any questions you may have.  Please let me know if I can answer anything else, and what time you will be here :) :) :)

Thank you all very much,


Tax Savings and your Fur-Baby

LovesPaws has day care options for a long day at the title company and loading/unloading boxes, or they can stay the weekend while everything is settled at the new home.  Get your family settled and then bring your furry kids home and introduce them to their new digs!


My recommendation is simply this....if you don't buy flea treatment directly from your veterinarian, or don't have to have someone at the local pet store remove it from a locked cabinet, it just isn't going to work. 

Pet Advocacy

Being a pet advocate is something I realized very early on in my career, was going to be the part that I would love the most.  Being able to be their voice when they can't speak is a great feeling.

Pet advocacy comes in many different shapes and sizes.  Daily, I am able to help make decisions for them that will benefit their lives.  This is either in the daily medicine portion, or having that difficult conversation with their owners at the end of their lives. 

One of my favorite ways to be an advocate is to join the pet and pet parent at their medical appointments. This benefits both the pets as well as the pet parents. Often, the doctors although not meaning to, will talk "doctor language" and the parent agrees and say they understand at the time, but really don't have any idea what the doctor just said.  That is where I come in...I have been in the field for so many years, I can easily understand what the doctor is saying, and be able to "translate" it to the pet parent in words that make more sense, therefore allowing that parent to feel better about the decisions for care they will be making.  I can also ask the questions that the parents wouldn't know to ask.  Recently, I joined a client at her appointment with an orthopedic surgeon.  That is a daunting experience for most.  It was comforting to her that I could go along and discuss the process, options, pros and cons of the surgery with the doctor, and ask questions on her behalf.

Please let me know if you are ever in need for someone to go along, even just for morale support if nothing else.  It's very overwhelming sometimes when your baby is sick or injured, and it is a time when you need someone to lean on.
