Sarah Burns opens up and shares one powerful story about how it’s an absolute blessing to be a professional pet sitter today. You’ll never look at your relationships with the pets in your care the same way.
Here is the story in Sarah’s words:
Anyone who knows me well knows that there is a large part of my heart dedicated to my Chocolate Lab, Casey. While we all bond with the dogs we share our lives with, sometimes we get the great honor to experience a relationship with an animal that goes much deeper.
I truly believe, and always will believe, that Casey was my guardian angel. For 15 years she was my faithful companion. Always only having loyalty to me.
She would swim out to me if I was in the lake and circle me until I grabbed her collar so she could pull me back to safety. She never allowed anyone to give me a hug and would try and get in between us. She would sit with me as I cried in some of the darkest days of my life and she always seemed to understand things more than the average dog.
She passed away in February of 2016 and I don’t know that my heart will every completely heal from such a loss.
