Out-U-Go! Chicago & Oak Park Pet Sitters Celebrate Surviving the Polar Vortex!

After biking, driving, and walking pups all through this epic Polar Vortex of winters, we thought our awesome pet sitters deserved some serious celebration. Those of us in the office thought it was a tough Winter, but would NEVER be caught complaining about it in front of those that were actually OUT there doing the visits! Are they amazing or what?

In addition to celebrating Sara’s soon-to-be motherhood and Chris’s addition to the OUG! team, we toasted our tough-as-nails team for surviving the sub-zero temperatures Oak Park served us up these past few months.

It’s always great to get together and swap dog stories, share photos of our favorite furry friends, and just have a good time with people who love pups & kitties as much as we do!

Meet Boulder / Denver Pet Sitter & Dog Walking Extraordinaire, Loni!

I’m in charge of: Taking care of, loving, and exercising pets while their human moms & dads are away. I specialize in belly rubs and treat each pet as lovingly as I do my own.

Super power: I would love it if pets could speak English to me so we could hold conversations while we spent time together. As of now, they are just stuck listening to their dog walker all day.

Best thing ever: Having a job doing what I love. Spending time with pets all day, dog walking and cat sitting, is honestly my dream job.

Hidden talent: Writing. I am, in fact, currently working on my memoir.

Life philosophy: I try to live my life like a dog. Be myself no matter who’s looking, live in the moment, and love others like they’re never coming back.
