I will lovingly care for your dog as if they are my own. Walks and exploring at Willis Tucker Park. Daytime care and play dates. Hi, I'm Tanya. So he stayed.
Overnights or extended stays in my home. Service Area: Willow Creek Community, Snohomish When I was 12, I started my own business. I thought my business name was brilliant:
"The Doggie Do-er." On pieces of paper, I hand-drew an outline of a bone with my business name, my name, phone number, and services inside of it. I taped them on all the mailboxes in the neighborhood. I offered dog walking,
yard cleaning, and pet care while people were out of town. I received one phone call. Over the next 4 years, I dog sat almost every weekend in the winter when my clients would go skiing. Shannon was a beautiful Golden Retriever, and I was with her when she was a puppy, in heat, pregnant, and when she had puppies of her own. Eventually my family moved from the area. Over the next (almost) 40 years, I worked, raised three children, helped my ex-husband start a business, ran a non-profit, and had 4 dogs of my own. The last two of which were senior rescues. When my beloved Bonnie crossed the rainbow bridge, I was devastated. I had had to say goodbye to 4 senior dogs in just 5 years time. The house was too quiet without a dog. I had the opportunity to foster dogs that needed a place to stay for a few days as they traveled to their new homes in Canada. It was then I decided to return to my roots and to start pet sitting again as well as continuing to foster. At the time, I did not think I was ready for another dog of my own, hence the name "Can I Borrow Your Dog?"
I ended up taking an emergency rescue for Juno's Den, a local rescue. I was supposed to have him just a few days until he went to a foster. I decided I would keep him instead of him making another move to a foster, until the rescue found him the perfect home. I realizedI was the perfect home. Hachi is a year-and-a-half-old Australian Cattle dog mix who loves other dogs. If you go to Willis Tucker Park, there's a good chance you've seen us as we are there every day. He is my best friend and partner in this venture. So here we are. I look forward to building long-term relationships with my 4-pawed clients and their families, and hope to help put your mind at ease when you can't be with your dog. I only sit for one dog at a time (unless you have more than one dog) so that they will receive all of the time, individual attention, and love that they would from you at home. Please message me if you have any questions, or if you would like to schedule a meet and greet. Thank you!

💞 It's Adoption Day for Rue and Yuyu!! 💞
Good things come to those who wait, and we knew it was best for the girls to be adopted as a bonded pair.
It may have taken a little longer, but the perfect parents showed up looking for two dogs to adopt, as they settle into retirement and want to bring the girls with them on all of their adventures.
It was hard for Scott to say goodbye last night, and it was hard for me to say goodbye today, but this is what it's all about.
Love and let go, a lesson I have needed to learn in my life.
As hard as it is, we are so excited for Rue and Yuyu, and we will always cherish the time we have had with them. Mom and Dad know we will be happy to take care of them when/if the opportunity arises.
So much thanks to Sylvia Cabrera for trusting us to have Rue and Yuyu in our home, and letting us be a part of the very important work she does through Juno's Den. You are changing not only the lives of the dogs you rescue, but our lives as well.
We love you, Rue and Yuyu. 💗
P.S. Yuyu, try your best to behave. 😘
Xanthi (Shanti) is now part of our growing pack of fosters. (and foster failures)
Apparently, thanks to Hachi, I have a soft spot for cattle dogs now.
We just couldn't say no when a new foster family could not be found for Xanthi on very short notice.
She arrived last night, and we are taking things slow for her benefit, as well as the rest of the dogs to make this an easy transition for all of them.
She had too many expectations put on her and was exposed too quickly to situations that she was just not ready for after all of the changes she has gone through.
Unfortunately, her foster-to-adopt family was not familiar with her breed and needs, and ultimately want a different dog.
We had a very positive first day, and we are looking forward to helping her settle in over the next few weeks. We are positive she is going to do great!
We need an urgent foster for one of our sweet girls who arrived less than a week ago. She is a cattle dog/corgi mix with a sweet disposition, weighs about 22 lbs, ~10-11 mo/old, and just needs some time while we keep looking for her best match in the .
If you have any questions, please message me or Tanya (.i.borrow.your.dog). We have our hands full and would really appreciate some help!
Thank you for sharing!
Huge thanks to our new friends Dylan and Derek (and their younger brothers) who turned our mess of a side yard into the perfect play space for our dogs, our fosters, and our future guests when we become Sniffspot hosts!
We decided to keep the dog thing going as I work through my health issues, and hope to return to dog sitting soon for some of my favorite furry friends.
Here's to hard-working young guys with a strong work ethic, who value family, share our good taste in music 😉 and think we're pretty cool to hang out with even though we are older than their parents.
Juno's Den is having a food drive for specific items for our dogs currently in foster care.
We recently transported two dogs from Mexico that have unexpected medical needs that we were not financially prepared for.
Thank you for your continued support as we work hard on upcoming fundraising events, and as our small rescue becomes more known in the community.
Little moments with Shasta. 💚💙💛
Yesterday at the park.
We were literally the ONLY ones in the offleash area.
I was so busy watching Hachi and Shasta running that I didn't think to film it until they were almost done.
About 8 months together, and Shasta has "almost" given in to playing with Hachi.
Smart boy knew she was worth waiting for. 💞
Forgot my Friday photos!!
Today I put the littles away so the big kids could play.
Meet Rwanda and Uruguay, our two new fosters!
"Rue" is the bigger of the two, and was abandoned after she had puppies. She is estimated to be about 3 years old. Right now she is happiest being held and snuggled.
"Yuyu" was found as a stray. She is estimated to be about 7 months old, and has the energy and playfulness that most puppies do. She is ready to live her best life!
Both are available for adoption through Juno's Den. They have been spayed, microchipped, are up-to-date on their shots, are freshly bathed, trimmed, and had their nails clipped. They are good with other dogs.
Apparently, the grass was exceptionally good this morning. 👌
Shasta's back! 😄
Hot days require early walks.
She even drank two bowls of water! 💦
Her: "I told you three different times on my walk, I don't want your water."
Me: "And I told you that it's hot out and you need to rehydrate."
Her: "You are annoying me today."
Me: "That's fine. But I love you and I'll wait."
(Waits a solid 5 minutes....)
Her: (Reluctantly drinks)
I thought I won, but she looks pretty pleased with herself for getting me to wait that long. 🤣
Just me and "my" girl today. 😘
Temperatures are rising. 🌡🔥
Some important reminders.🐾✅️
Monday fun day!
It was a good day to have a good day. 😊
Shasta's walk today.
Toby's walk today. ❤️
Two trips to the park today...and a little stop by the house on the way back for some toy time.
I exercised some restraint and didn't take as many pictures today. I adore his little furrowed brow...
I loved Toby the first time I met him in our neighborhood. 🥰
I am so happy to get to spend time with him the next few days. He's a big love bug!
Spring may have finally sprung, and the kids are loving it! ☀️🌼💛
Good morning, sunshine! ☀️
Shasta's cousin Hunter is visiting for a few days!
He was ALL about the smells.
I love his little toofers.
