    On this Christmas Day Eve, I want to send to all you dog walkers and pet sitters … those of you who are established in business and those of you who are still thinking about it … a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Hanukkah, a Merry Quansa and a joyous Festivus. If you celebrate some other holiday at this time of the year, my wishes to you as well.
    If you’re already in business, you’ll surely be getting plenty of holiday gifts in the form of food and gift cards. Be sure to thank your customers. And for your customers who didn’t leave anything for you, send them a cheery holiday greeting as well.
    For those of you who are still planning on getting into this business, it’s time to get off your butts and get this show moving! There’s nothing better than a New Year’s Resolution to take your destiny into your own hands.
    Happy Holidays you wonderful, wonderful animal lovers!
