Downers Grove Pet Sitter Liz

Meet Downers Grove Pet Sitting Extraordinare, Liz! Warning: Her Dogs Will Make You “Aww” Out Loud! [PHOTO]

Hi there, I’m Liz, pet sitter extraordinaire covering Downers Grove! I’d like to introduce you to my furry family. I have a 7 year-old Chihuahua named Bigsby, who we call Bigs for short, a 4 year-old Yorki-Poo named Ella, and last but not least, there is my 9-month-old American Bulldog named Cooper.

Every day is an adventure with these three! My bulldog would definitely be the most social of the gang…we spend a lot of time at the dog park playing, running, and saying hi to every potential furry or human friend he sees.

As a joint decision, my furry family and I would declare the classic red Kong as our favorite toy! Each of my pups has their own size-appropriate Kong, and they go to town when I put their favorite snacks inside, like peanut butter, apple sauce, and pumpkin. Sometimes I freeze the filled Kong to make it last longer (shhhh… don’t tell them that!).

My pups also agree on having a favorite treat: they go absolutely bananas for Stella & Chewy’s Carnivore Crunch! We like to go back & forth between and try all the other flavors, too.

As cheesy at it may sound, the best gift I’ve ever received are my dogs! Their unconditional love is something that can never be replaced.

Thanks for taking the time to get to know me and my furbabies!

Bark in the Park Recap

Carly with Bully Breed Rescue adoptable dogs

It is no secret that I LOVE my job and by far one of the best parts about my job is working with wonderful shelters, such as The Anti- Cruelty Society.  The ACS adopts out thousands of homeless  cats and dogs each year!  The ACS does a terrific job of creating events that are fun for everyone and very family friendly.  These events are always a big success and in turn raise lots of money for the shelter.  We have partcipated in “It’s Raining Cats and Dogs” and also “Bark in the Park” the last couple of years and year after year they continue to be a huge success.  They draw in a great crowd and really bring animal lovers together for a great cause.

This year, we had an awesome booth that people were able to stop by and learn more about Out-U-Go!  Jerry and Alyse (who are two of our fabulous walkers)  helped out and I could not have done it without them!  Jerry handed out treats to every furry friend that walked by while Alyse captured all the Kodak moments being the amazing photographer she is.  Our next door neighbor was the Midwest Bully Breed rescue so I had the pleasure of making friends with Wanda and a few other adorable bulldogs.  Also- it is so fun to see our pet parents and pup’s at these events!  We bumped in to Ollie, Hope and Fausty (just name to a few). 🙂

We will continue to support the ACS and every other wonderful shelter we work with!  I encourage you and everyone you know to attend these events as they are fun, furry and a great way to hang with your pup!
