Welcome our guest speaker…Nana Darling!

Hi everyone, Amanda here.  Today we have a special treat for our blog.  Amanda’s Paw Pals recently had the privilege of caring for Nana Darling, most famous for her role of nurse to the Darling children in the movie Peter Pan.  Nana was in town visiting with her niece Ginger, a client of Amanda’s Paw Pals, while their humans went away together for a few days.  We asked Nana if she would talk about her experiences to our readers.  So without further ado—Nana Darling!

                Hello!  It is so nice to talk about my recent experiences with Amanda’s Paw Pals.  I was not happy to find out that my masters were going to leave me alone while they went away.  It was like being dragged out to be chainenana darlingd in the yard and expected to sleep in that little dog house all those years ago by my master, George.  In the end, he came to his senses and let me back in the nursery where I belonged; truth be told, I expected them to turn around and get me this time as well. 

Right from the first visit, I knew that it would be okay.  This human, Amanda, greeted Ginger and me with open arms.  She was so smiley and warm!  She hugged Ginger and stroked her behind her ears.  Ginger’s leg started shaking and she was drooling all over everything…such a country dog!  I waited patiently for this girl to notice me.  When Ginger had rolled onto her back and Amanda had rubbed her belly, she approached me.  Being that we had never met, she was slow and careful when she came towards me.  She was talking to me about how Ginger’s human had told her all about me and how she loved my acting in Peter Pan.  When she got to me, she kneeled down in front of me and let me sniff her for a minute.  She tried to rub me behind my ears like she did with Ginger but since I am a cartoon and 2 dimensional she was not really able to.  No matter, I loved the fact that she tried! 

                After all that was finished, it was time to go for a walk.  Ginger lived right near a beautiful forest and we were able to take a stroll through the trees.  We heard birds singing, and the sound of the brook babbling along while we hiked.  It was heavenly.  Amanda kept us on a long leash and let us stop and sniff whenever we wanted.  Ginger kept sniffing trees and telling me who had been there before us, she knows everyone!  Of course, it is a small area 🙂  Amanda was great, she kept pointing out the different birds and flowers on our walk.  She didn’t even get upset when we were barking at each other and carrying on about Ginger’s friends! 

                When we got home, Amanda told us what good dogs we were (a little simple for my liking, but it was still nice to hear!) and gave us treats and more pats before she left.  I told Ginger that she was pretty nice and Ginger told me it is like that every time Amanda comes.  I didn’t admit it to my niece, but I was looking forward to the next visit!

                So there you have it, folks.  Straight from the dog’s mouth 🙂  Amanda’s Paw Pals makes it their mission to make everyone happy—whether you are human, an animal, or an animation.  If you haven’t let your pooch (or your kittie!) experience our service, what are you waiting for?!

It’s a new year and a new day

The year 2016 is going to be a great one for Amanda’s Paw Pals.  How could I possibly know that, you ask?  Easy–because I just do!  I am a strong believer in self-self fullfilling prophecyfulfilling prophecies and so I am believing myself into having a great year!

Business has been very good.  I have some really amazing clients (with two legs and with four!) and I am meeting new people every day.

It gets frustrating when I try to get my name out there and I don’t think it is happening, but inevitably someone will stop me at the store and tell me they saw my ad somewhere and I will feel better.  It takes time to build a following and I have to wait like everyone else!

All I know for sure is that 2015 was a good year and 2016 will be GREAT!
