Who would walk them, feed them, play with them and tend to their needs?
There didn't seem to be an option other than leaving their beloved dogs and cats to a kennel service. And Tinsley thought it would be nice to have something else in town.
He remembered when he was 10 years old, in second grade, walking dogs for elderly pet owners who came to adore him.
