“Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend has never owned a dog.” Sam has owned pets her whole life, including cats, guinea pigs, dogs, and even squirrels. When she moved to Indiana for a year she wasn’t allowed to have pets, and she worked a desk job at a debt collection agency and went through pet withdrawal. Saddened by the lack of animals in her life, she began volunteering at the local shelter to help out those in need. When Sam and her fiance moved back to Cleveland her mother suggested she work at a boarding facility. Lord knows Moms are always right! Sam has been working at boarding facilities for almost four years now and couldn’t be happier. She absolutely loves working with dogs! They’re loyal, always excited to see you, and they make for quite an entertaining day. Sam’s attitude is, “how can you have a bad day when you make a living playing with dogs?!”
