Busy Living the Dream – Petsitting Williamsburg

Cutest dog, Juno Pomeranian

Every now and then my husband and I find ourselves living the dream in one of our petsits. The last week we will have been crashing with one of our perrenial petsits, Juno, the dapple Pomeranian – Petsitting Williamsburg.

Juno keeps us healthy and happy. Not only does she force me to go for a walk at least three times a day, she also brings us so much joy with her wild, energetic greetings when we return home. She builds up speed and then launches herself up in the air, onto the couch, and dances with the large grin you see below on her face.

She is absolutely one of the most loving dogs we have ever worked with, and this fluffy ball of joy is That Dog that wants to be cuddled and held close while you bury your face into her fluffy fur.

So what’s petsitting at Juno’s home look like?

The Workspace

I love working here. Natural light pouring in from the southern exposure all day.

The Finishing Touch

We like to leave homemade biscuits and cards for out petsitters to return home to.

Leaving handmade dog biscuits is the crowning touch on our petsit experience for owners.

Workout Area

Flipping through cookbooks, magazines, and relaxing while logging the miles in between business calls and online research.

Running on the tredmill has been a nice change of pace from my usual running around the city.

The Landscape

It’s a beautiful and diverse neighborhood full of new condo buildings, older rowhouse, apartments, and a bounty of different residents – native and foreign. Lots of dogs roam the sidewalks, so Juno has a new friend to make on nearly every block.

The Living Room

They have Plex! So we have been able to watch a lot of movies we were semi-interested in, or at least just discovered we are interested in.

Bedroom

The comfy bed that we share with Juno, while she snuggles with us.

The Building

To respect Juno’s owners’ privacy, we won’t post her building, but Juno lives in one of the comfortable, modern condo buildings that have been sprung up on the border of Williamsburg and Greenpoint in the last decade.  It is at least 15 minutes of walking from the subway, but as my husband and I rely on Citibike to get around the city, we have no problem with this location and enjoy roundtrip ride across the Williamsburg Bridge when we venture into Manhattan.

Helicopter Badge

My husband doesn’t consume caffiene, so it is the perfect wake-me-up to get his blood and adrenaline pumping before a sedentary office work day. Well, seemingly sedentary, as he did recently gain the Fitbit Helicopter Badge…


…from walking up and down the steps between the 3rd and 7th floors that his office is split between. I’m pretty jelly of his landing this award, but as someone not find of inclines, I’m not That jealous…although I will try to take the stairs more often.
