Saw this today while walking Murphy & Quizz up on the Timberhill path in the woods. This was the only flower I saw out there and was surprised by the sudden burst of color.
Should You Tip Your Pet Sitter?
Absolutely! If you’re happy with the services your pet sitter offers, then by all means, please leave a tip.
It’s nice to be acknowledged.
Being acknowledged for a job well done makes us feel good. Any gesture you can make to let your pet sitter know how much you appreciate what they’re doing will not be overlooked! The pet sitters I know (and that would be a lot) don’t expect tips or gifts from clients, but they sure do appreciate them. It can make working holidays feel less lonely, and a bit more festive. And it’s not uncommon, after the holidays are over, to see messages on some of the pet sitter forums bragging about the wonderful client who left them a tip, a gift card, or other unexpected treat.

In addition to vacation pet care, I am also available to notarize your documents. I am an official Notary Public for the State of Oregon. I normally charge $10 per signature, but I am offering my service to my current pet care clients at a discounted rate of $7.
