This is me!

My name is Kelly Palacios and I dream to work as a dog walker like Jennifer Dibs.  I was inspired to work as a dog walker because I get to be outside and I am able to spend time with my favorite animals, which are dogs.  I also don’t have to work long hours, which  means I could spend time doing activities that I like to do.

My mentor Jennifer, told me she was first inspired to work as a dog walker because she has always had a passion for animals, especially dogs.  She has encouraged me to try my best in school and to go for a job that I’m interested in.

Kelly: How much does a dog walker make?
Jennifer Dibs: I get paid according to how many pets we care for and what we do. It’s always different–some weeks are busier than others.

Kelly: Do you have any regrets on a choice you have made? Did you learn from it?
Jennifer Dibs: I regret almost every choice besides my job! I made the choices I made to find out who I am.

Kelly: When times get hard what do you tell yourself to get through them?
Jennifer Dibs: I tell myself I don’t have to do it if i don’t want to.

Kelly: Tell me about the dogs- are there some that you have liked more than others?
Jennifer Dibs: All are my favorite. I love them all. I’ve also taken care of tarantulas and chinchillas, they’re small rabbits with thick fur from Peru. Also Guinuie pigs, mice, lizards, fishes, cats, and parrots.

Kelly: What do your parents do?
Jennifer Dibs: Well, my dad was a police officer. My mom was a house wife. They divorced when I was young .

Kelly: What is an average work day?
Jennifer Dibs: Every day is different!! Some days I take dogs for walks, sometimes I do office work, or sometimes I just take the day off. On a daily bases I wake up, feed my chickens, take my kids  to school, walk my dogs, and then do my work. Sometimes I garden, fix things, sew, cook. My kids are all adopted. I adopted them when they were two and four. Now they’re twelve and thirteen!!
