When Shirl watches your pet

We'll take our walks in the quiet rural area and private beach that is Chatuge Shores. Your dog's sleeping arrangement is what ever he or she is used to and they can sleep cuddled next to me if they wish.
Time I'll spend with your dog, All Day and Night. I am home and looking forward to having your furry family member while you're away...
