The Dog Walker who Became An Aunt
So, I told yall I have a new dog. With my long work hours/commute, I needed someone to come in and walk him during the day. Yes, I was skeptical, especially being raised by old-school parents who do not believe in letting people in your house that you do not know especially WHEN YOU’RE NOT HOME. But what else was I going to do? Bentley needs exercise and to do his business. So, I peruse Stafford Talk, a Facebook group seeing who others use and happen upon Erika who owns a dog walking service. I was still wary but our first conversation put me at ease!
In the weeks that I have known her, she has showered me with so much information and helped ease the transition of having someone else in my house (yes, I know it’s a dog). Her life hacks and tips on why he does what he does has been so clutch that I have told everyone about her. I no longer have to say “my dog walker”. I just say “Erika”.
And now she is my “Aunt”. I have adopted this wonderful 50-year-old white woman as my Aunt and I couldn’t be happier. Not only does she help me with Bentley, but she listens to my other life events. I feel blessed. She’s dope!
