Publisher's Summary

Celebrities, Hollywood A-Listers, demanding divas, and run-of-the-mill egomaniacs. The Pet Sitter's Tale is Laura Vorreyer's funny, entertaining, and always heart-warming collection of short stories from her 15 years wrangling the furry children of Southern California's most colorful pet parents.  

The Pet Sitter's Tale paints a vivid picture of what it's like to witness, and be a willing participant of, the pampered life of a celebrity's dog. Laura is always compassionate and understanding of the eccentricities of pet parents as she tells her tales of overly-protective, dog-obsessed clients. Along the way, Laura sprinkles her stories with business advice to the would-be dog walker or pet sitter.

Each story is infused with the author's unique sense of humor and observations about the foibles and adventures of furry children and their human counterparts. This audiobook sounds like a hybrid of The Devil Wears Prada and The Nanny Diaries, except with adorable dogs.

A perfect listen or gift for the pet lover.

Great Starting a Business Tail

This was a great short listen. It starts with her experiences of trying to make it in Hollywood as a make-up artist and how she evolves into creating her dog walking/pet sitting business. She does a great job narrating her book and it was a lot of fun to listen to. I will say that due to some of the content I would definitely say it is geared towards a young adult to adult crowd, although very funny I wouldn't want my middle school kids reading about her one day experience doing make-up for the porno studio... and I don't blame her at all for not returning. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and do still recommend to the adult reader.

The Pet Sitter’s Tale

An enjoyable listen about the authors experiences with becoming a dog walker and pet sitter. The pet stories were great but I also liked hearing about the experiences of setting up her own business. Well done!

Experiences of a pet sitter

This was an interesting look at the reality of being responsible for extremely pampered pets. These pets are loved and pampered more than most children and the expectations of some of the owners goes to the extreme. A large focus of this book is also on how difficult it is to hire good, reliable help. Some of the employees were so terrible it was laughable. One would have to be a big lover of animals to do this job and unfortunately, these employees were not.

Short and Sweet

This was the very first time listen to the author, I enjoyed all the little "tails" throughout, but it feels like there needs to be another book, I know the book is all about dogs and the house sitting, but now I want to know if she left that awful boyfriend?Also I hope to be reincarnated to as one of these pampered pooches.

I have learnt from reading this book but also a lesson that I have learned in my own life, don't hire or be friends with someone you feel sorry for, it burns you every time.

This was a lovely short story and I would recommend this book to any future dog sitters or even just if you love animals and want to hear more about someone else who loves dogs very much.
