Au­thor: Peo­ple, Pets The Same Ev­ery­where

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Sports -

Pet sit­ter Pam Lewis moved from the East Coast to Hawaii in 2001, and she hon­estly wasn’t sure what to ex­pect. “Even though it was com­pletely base­less,” the Kailua woman stated, “I was con­cerned there might be dif­fer­ences in the way pet own­ers in Hawaii be­haved to­ward their pets.

“The fact is good pet own­ers just want their pets to be happy and healthy. In that same vein, dogs en­joy rolling in poop re­gard­less of where they re­side, and cats en­joy maim­ing small crea­tures re­gard­less of geog­ra­phy.”

Lewis es­tab­lished Dog­gie Pad­dles Pet Sit­ting Ser­vice in Kailua in 2006, and has now writ­ten an e-book about her Hawaii an­i­mallov­ing ex­pe­ri­ences: Pet Sit­ting in Par­adise. The book fo­cuses on the hi­jinks she en­coun­ters as a pet sit­ter as well as her own jour­ney from the Main­land to Hawaii, and it has been drawing rave re­views for its hu­mor and de­tail.

“In the end, not only is the adage ‘peo­ple are peo­ple’ true, but pets are pets,” stated Lewis.

In­ter­ested read­ers can pur­chase Lewis’ e-book for $2.99 on ama­zon.com. For a taste of her writ­ing, read her blog at pet­sit­ting­in­par­adise.word­press.com.
