animals

I love animals. I'm constantly trying to figure out how to make a career out of petting them and loving them. And don't suggest becoming a vet because I don't want to ever see them in pain. I've thought about being an animal rights activist (poli sci + love for animals) but I'm not sure that I'm extreme enough. I could never be a hunter and I really dislike hunting, but I still think you have a right to hunt, just don't talk to me about it. I think its awful that some cultures condone eating dogs, for example, but I recognize that it is cultural and people have a right to their cultural inheritance. I just can't picture a moderate animal rights activist. By definition they seem extreme. An animal handler might be fun, but I wouldn't want to ever make them do something they don't want to, which again, could be problematic. I guess I need to find a celebrity who wants someone to just love their pet for them while they are away and want to pay me a lot to do that. There is something just so sweet about animals. I'm enamored by their nature and fun personalities. I could talk forever about animals. So I'll just post this video and say I'm envious of this ladies profession.



p.s. She says 'shooting' these animals like 20 times. Probably would've been better to go with 'photographing' but whatev...

I so agree! Ever since getting Pocket (who I didn't even want since I didn't care for animals, she was supposed to be Mike's dog, but then her cute babyness made me fall head over heels for her) I feel like a whole new "animal loving" side of me has emerged! To the point where I have considered joining PETA (but like you said, too extreme, I do like my steak) and I get a little teary eyed when the animal abuse commercials come on. But I just don't know what to do. I keep telling Michael that my dream is to have a huge piece of land someday so that we can take in a bunch of strays and just let them roam in same territory.

A few weeks ago after watching a video of a pet hotel, I told Alan that's what I wanted to do/own/run. I don't think he was impressed. :-)

so there is no overnight kennel (not attached to a vet) in utah county ladies, do you want to go into business with me? the only down side i see is the 365/24/7 aspect of it all and that is why we could all take turns:)

You are funny. I did like your idea about being an animal sitter for famous people.
