hear we go again

I just saw your post as pet caregiver on Craigslist.com and I'm hoping
to talk with you more about it. How many years of professional pet
sitting experience have you accumulated while working with Pets? Can I
contract your services for my pet, a Samoyed dog by the name Bella? I
shall be needing services starting from JUNE 13TH and would stretch
till JULY 12TH. I'm flexible with start time,but preferably between
10AM-11AM, when i will be off to work. At least a minimum of 1hrs
daily,(MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAYS). Services include walking, general care
and limited to feeding. You will caring for her at my rented suite.
Can you tell me your exact location (i.e the closest Major
Intersection to your home) so I can calculate how close it will be to
my rented suite and also to make further arrangements for the task.
Thanks
David Buchanan.
