What are you doing today?

I’m walking dogs. From 8:30 to around 3:30, Monday through Friday. Weekends I’m off. It started as a side thing, because I’m a retired police officer. I love it. It’s really fun. The dogs are sometimes better than hanging out with people. They go with the flow. In general, I pick up the dog and walk it for a half hour or an hour, depending on what the customer wants. I have the same dogs pretty much every day. The clients like that consistency, and the dogs like it too. I get my schedule, I do what I’ve got to do and I don’t have a boss looking over my shoulder.

What's your favorite part of the day?

I’d say the afternoon. Everyone has already gone to work and you’re not dealing with people trying to get the kids to school and getting to work.

What are you doing tomorrow?

Same thing, same schedule.
