Joe and I are non smokers. We both love all animals, especially dogs and cats. Currently we do not have any pets as both have passed away in their twilight years and the amount of traveling we do in a year.

We are both honest, loving people whom fit in and adapt to any situation wherever we go. We will take care of your home and your beloved pets like our own.
