Welcome

Hello my pet loving friends!

My name is Jaime Standley. I’ve had the pleasure of being friends with Brooke for over 10 years. I’ve been married to my husband for almost 13 years and we have two beautiful sons named John and Matthew. For the past 14 years I called the animal care industry home. I’ve lived in Houston most of my life with an interim stop in Katy for about 14 years. I have an Associates Degree in Science and plan on going back to school to study Marine Biology. When we had our second son in February I made the decision to become a stay at home mom to our boys and it is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Recently, Brooke approached me with the idea to create and maintain a blog for her wonderful pet sitting business, Animal Admiration. In this blog we hope to address many different aspects of pet care, pet health and more.

We will delve into such as issues as:

How to keep your four legged friend happy while your away whether it’s for a few minutes or a full work day

Dog friendly restaurants

Are cats really like potato chips and you can’t have just one?

…..and so much more!

I welcome any and all topic ideas from you, the customer. After all, you and your pet companions are who we do this for!

See you next blog,

Jaime Standley
