Takes deep breath...This will keep me out of the poor house and can contribute to buying lots of kibbles for the next upcoming weeks.
>>I'm doing the Happy Dance and just bursting to tell someone of my good fortune!!
|WOO HOO, big happy dance for you|
|WOW Very cool
You've been having quite the luck lately Marianne.
|LOL my friends kid me about being Jill of all Trades.
In the last couple weeks I've had the dubious distinction of being a Special Ed Teacher, Magician, ESL Teacher, Furniture Delivery Person (remember that one? ) , Pet sitter, and now Canine Consultant.
Truthfully I think it's the single parent syndrome...always make myself highly employable in all sorts of jobs so when money gets tight I can always take on a host of secondary jobs for short term durations. I never seek out these other jobs but am always asked and always love challenges!!!
........Money is no option they said, as I hesitated as to what I should charge......Marianne
Answer: "A bunch." I'm applying for the position as your assistant, but will need airfare.
Congrats to you!!!
Only YOU Marianne!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations, you deserve it!!! I know you are perfect for the job and will be REAT at it!!!
|Marianne, does that mean that any advice given to the guy/gal that may have originated on the forum will translate into royalties to the forum? Uh, UH,UH ???
Ron, keep an eye on this gal.
|I'm just happy there are no royalties due TO her from her stories!|
|Congratulations.....you deserve it!!!!
Brenda, Dud and Murph
I'm just happy there are no royalties due TO her from her stories!
|How fun! Enjoy the job.|
|How cool is that???
Charge him enough so that you can come to the Philly picnic or camping in September!
And Ron, don't give her any ideas!!! You're going to end up with an invoice from Canada, eh!
|Congrats, Marianne!! What a great job for you!!|
|Wow, what great news!! Right up your alley, as they say. Any idea what kind of dog yet?|
|What a dream job!!!! Congrats.....|
|Can't think of anyone better for the job. Judging from all you've been doing lately (yes, I remember you being the mover), your business card must be extra large|
|Aww Marianne, that is so awesome! Good for you girl! I can't think of anyone better to be a dog purchaser consultant type person But how in the heck did you bump into this person, and how did he get the idea???|
|Good things come to those who wait|
|That is INCREDIBLE! No wonder they are rich -- they are obviously very smart -- got the VERY BEST!!! They are so lucky. I'm so happy for you. I can't wait to hear how it goes.|
|I agree that you are perfect for this job. To add to it, you're so patient, so if they did have a dog with some issues... you would be able to handle anything! Though I imagine with your help, they will find the perfect dog.|
|WOW! That is so cool! Sounds like a blast. We know you'll pick the perfect pup for them! Maybe you can pick out a sheepie and he can pay to have it live at your house too!!! It does worry me that if they don't have time to research what dog they want, how will they have the time to take care of him/her?|
It was that weird karma thing happening again I'm thinking. He's very close to a good friend of mine.Recently they had a conversation which he said he wished he knew someone that could help him purchase a dog. My name came up and he called me with the offer.
He said he's done research and kinda has his heart set on a miniature poodle and wants a pup. I'm impressed he's researched the breed although he's open to listening to suggestions I might have regarding other small breeds. His kids are 7, 11 and 13, grandma lives with them too so there will always be someone home with the puppy.
The 11 year old is seriously wanting to become a vet when she grows up. (Ironically I've met the kids several times before at parties I performed at!!) See again weird karma at play!
The job description entails,after our initial conversation which I stressed the importance of finding a reptuable breeder is this. I'm supposed to document and itemize time spent searching on the net, making calls and tracking down a good breeder. Assist him in asking the right questions to the breeder (so a bit of research as to breed characteristics and medical issues on my part).
Once pup is home meeting with the entire family and educating them about puppies, medical, behavior and nutrition and making sure all of the family are actively doing the proper things. Impressive isn't it - this guy is really wanting to make this work! Helping with training a few times and so far that's where we left it off. In the meantime I'm searching the net and contacting various poodle rescues as they often know best whom are the reputable breeders in most cases. I'm also contacting poodle organizations and even joined a poodle group like this one for our sheepie kids.
Have I missed anything? Just let me know as I've never done this before! Oh yeah...royalties...well wish I could charge for that..ha ha..or fly down to the sheepie fest..but Panda has cost me an arm and a leg..(not literally as I wouldn't have a leg to stand on and would need a hand) Groan.Now I'm sounding like Ron..hee hee. He still needs full sedation at the vets every time he has a medical concern and so while he's under I get the "works" which always cost me a small fortune..so this is the Panda fund $! Isn't it weird how things work out?
Marianne and the boys
