Barbra’s Bio

Hi, I am Barbara from Hungary.
I never did pet sitting for money, only because I wanted to help my friends.
While I grew up,we had a Daschund, Pici. We were good friends, we sat together under the chair,when someone opened a champagne in the family.
My grandfather was a dog breeder and trainer, after he retired.
He saved the Transylvanian Hound breed:

Under # 4(Presentation of the domestic Transylvanian hunting stock ):
"The Trassilvánia kennel, founded by Mihály Vigi in 1974, gave many famous descendants to the Hungarian hare stock."
Later, my grandma saved a little black cat from the street, so he traveled to home on the top of the potatoes.... :) I named him Frici.
He spent years with us, when it was winter time, he liked to sleep on my back. While he was growing to be a "young guy" he started to be a vagabond. I saved him couple of times from the neighbor's building,he was stucked in the snow, but I knew, one day he will disappear....
Than I started my own family, we lived in an apartment on the 10th floor, so I didn't even think about pets.
When we moved to the US, we bought a lab mix from Petco, he was Trixie. My husband brought home a turtle, my son named her to Dunkin. At the time we lived in a house in Boca Raton.
In 2016 we moved to an apartment, so we donated Trixie to a friend.
I never thought it is good for dogs and cats, if they need to live in apartments, small rooms all day long......They need their freedom and space. A lot of times I am very sceptical with stranger dogs, especially if they are large size and agressive breed.
While I worked for USPS,they teached: any dog can bite.Which is true, any size, any breed.
What I mean by this, I need to know them first, to feel trust .
I believe usually it is mutual.
Perfect example: my friend have a Basset hound, Bessy. She knew me long time ago, usually I stopped by at their house. After years I started to spend more time with them, and she was happy to go out for a walk with me. I talked to her in Hungarian and she acted like she understood, what I said. My friend asked me: is she speaks Hungarian? :)
I was like: no, they do not speak any languages, but they feel your soul.
Well, my story maybe a little bit longer, but I hope you liked it and I will hear from you soon.
Thanks for reading, Barbara
