About Maria Pedro

When I came to live in London my first tears were because of Tobias (cat-10 years old) & Pipa (dog-11). When I saw them through my Skype screen I couldn't help it. Until now my family still makes fun of it (and they are jealous). And after "how are you mum and dad and sis", there is always the question: is Pipa taking the pills? How is Tobias doing, eating well?
I've always had dogs. I was born moreless at the same time Lord was born (my grandparents german shepherd). We were inseparable. Maybe that is why my heart beats faster for large breed dogs.
After a few birds and fishes I decided not to have more. I couldn't stand seeing them in cages.
I always wanted a cat. But it was only when I turned 15 that my mother finally granted my wish. Cinza. My first cat.
Although I'm so sentimental with animals and have so much love to give them, they always leave me sooner that they should. They run away or have some fatal disease. That meant constant care and I was normally the nurse on call.
I had had to say too many goodbyes. So I'm so happy now with my dog's white hair.
Here in London I don't have a pet. I want to be with them. I'm a big fan of The Dog Whisperer. Sometimes I just like to stand there, observing or having a silent conversation with them.

    Maria was very nice, calm and made me feel comfortable leaving my cocker spaniel puppy with someone new for the first time. She sent me texts throughout the day letting me know what they were up too and even details of her poop! Definitely recommend her.

    Maria was fantastic our train was late getting into London, but she was so understanding and kind. Pepper our Chihuahua took to her straight away she seems to have a special way with dogs and sets them at ease. We would very highly recommend Maria and would use her again without hesitation. Thanks so much Denise, Graham and of course Pepper.
