 My wife and I started Papa's Pets under the direction of our children and our Daughter-in-law, Rebecca. It started when Rebecca was writing a check to their pet sitter and asked our son," Why doesn't your dad do something like this?" Of course she knew I was semi retired and that taking on something like  this full time with my wife's help wouldn't be a problem, but it was our love for animals and making sure they were treated right that the kids knew would make Papa's Pets a sure success. We finially found out about that old saying, do something you love and you'll never work another day in your life. Our biggest problem now is having to say good-bye to our guests, but knowing they most likely will be coming back makes it easier. Besides, we have to make room for our new guests anyway. That really is one of the best parts, meeting new pets and seeing all the different personalities. I've had at least one dog, most the time two, by my side since I could walk. The same holds true today. We only have one, a small black lab named Bella. I truiy believe she was born with a tennis ball in her mouth, but that's a story for another day.  Bella really enjoys meeting all her new pals and finding out about their personalities as well. We hope to be meeting your pets real soon....                                                                                                                 Thank you,                                                                                                                           Bill, Valerie and Bella
