Hello, my name is Wendi
Manwiller. I am fifty six years old, married with two children, five
grandchildren and three dogs.
was in a very bad car accident back in 1989 which left me paralyzed
and in a wheel chair, never to walk again according to my doctors.
After seventeen months in a wheel chair and lots of hard work, I proved
the doctors wrong and walked out of the hospital. I have a degree in
Sports Medicine from Temple University, class of 1979.
After my accident I was not able to perform my duties

prepare myself for any emergencies that might arise. At that time
I was the only pet sitter in the area. I offered dog walking and doggie
daycare at my home. Since then the business has grown to what it is today.

I also provide transport to and from the groomer and the vet.
