We’ve been in puppy land at the Miller household the past two weeks.
Make sure you have a box of tissues out before you read this. It is truly amazing.
The Pilgrims landed in Plymouth, Massachusetts, a scant forty miles from where Urban Hound is currently located, with hopes, dreams and two dogs, an English Mastiff and an English Springer Spaniel. Often hailed as America’s first dogs, the logic behind bringing the two breeds seems clear enough, one to guard and protect and the other to aid in hunting. Or, more likely, a pilgrim would’ve been a broken hearted mess if they had left their special pooches behind, but that’s the sort of stuff that gets left out of the history books.
I love my job! I’m sure I have told you over and over again how fortunate I am to be able to do what I do. I wake up every day happy to be working with dogs, and feel blessed to have the most amazing clients in the world. I have been in the dog care industry for almost 12 years now (wow, right?). More often than not it feels like yesterday that I started walking dogs in the South End.
