Pics from a Pet Sitter

As a pet sitter with Mel’s Pet Pals, I get to see a lot of cool, interesting, funny and strange things while out and about during the morning, day and evening. I had no idea I was missing so much when I was stuck in my cubicle downtown!

Sometimes it’s what I see on the road while sitting in traffic, or while out on a walk with a dog, or it’s simply one of my kitty or doggie clients acting silly. In any case, I always have my camera handy so I can snap a shot of whatever it is and share it with my client’s parents or with my friends.

I thought I would put together a few of the more cool, interesting, funny and strange things I have seen along the way. Enjoy! And, feel free to share stories of the things you have seen while out and about that caught your attention. I always love a good story!

    Really beautiful pics, Mel! Love that witch! It reminds me what a cool place MN must be! Okay. That’s it. I’m coming to visit. Where is MN, anyway?

      Thanks Mary! Come and visit any time!
      Where is MN? LOL! Just south of Canada, East of South and North Dakota, North of Iowa and West of Wisconsin. Hope that helps! 🙂

    Great pics. I like the witch one, humorous. I wouldn’t want to come upon the Freddie Kruger one tho!

      Carol – I agree with you. The witch made me laugh out loud when I first saw it. The mask in the truck had me do a double-take. Just freaky scary.

    Makes you wonder how you ever survived the office environment!

    I found this to be true, too. I’m a country girl, I grew up in Vermont but now I live in New York (state, not the Big city!). I find that when I take the time to look, I can find bits of country even in the city.

      So true Peggy! I have been amazed at the things I’ve likely missed because I was in too much of a hurry to get to work and back from work or because I had work on the mind. I have seen some of the most amazing things. These are only some of the things I have seen since my eyes were opened.

      Thank you for for your nice compliment! I am kind of partial to that one too. And, Maggie and Nikko. Such cuties!
