I sell cremation plans. My job requires me to meet with people in their homes, ask a few questions, and listen a lot. Today, the lady I met with obviously needed me to listen. She told me stories about her, candidly speaking here, horrible painful life for two and a half hours. But in between the welled up tears, sighs, and curse words, along came Midnight.
Making friends with my client’s dogs is a good 30% of what I love about my job. Dogs know if you are a good person or not, too. A lady’s dog, like Midnight, will tell her that I can be trusted.
At home, my dogs are my children. They need me as much as I need them. Part of my work/life balance is ensuring I have enough time with them, especially outside.
This is a fair warning: there will be blogs about my dogs in the future. 😀
