What a delightful post. Heart-warming, encouraging, smile-inducing. Good for you! S&F
This is a great example of what I keep reading - to give means to receive. The service you provide is not only to pet owners but also to the animals,
the neighborhood. It provides you with exercise, which makes you feel better and helps you project positive energy around you.
IMO, this has a much more positive and direct effect on others (and humanity by extension) than giving to charity organizations and paying part of our
taxes for welfare programs. Those actions have their necessary place, but there is the element of corruption and fraud inherent in both. For some
people, the temptation to take advantage of and use those positions for their own gain is just too strong to resist; they want everything for nothing.
People who have extra money generally don't have any problem paying someone to do household chores and take care of their animals while they're at
work (or even if they're not working). It benefits them by making their lives easier and puts their minds and hearts at rest. It's a win-win
Kudos to you!
