Very Important Pet Parent Spotlight
Angie Smith & Aria Skye
What brought you to Florida?
I moved to Florida after graduate school to attend law school.
Have you always had pets?
Please introduce us to your Fur Family. How did you meet and become FURever companions?
Aria Skye is an 8-year-old Silver Labrador Retriever. I was in Vegas at the Aria Resort and was playing fun 21 Blackjack. I decided to have a side bet and bet someone that if I won they had to buy me a silver lab puppy… hence the name “Aria.”
What do you love most about your pet?
I love Aria’s affection and energy. I love how excited she gets to ride in a vehicle and how she loves to only be in the passenger front seat. She is not a “back seat rider.”
How has 9 to 5 Pets made your life easier? What do your pets enjoy the most from our service?
9 to 5 Pets has relieved a ton off of my plate. Knowing that Aria is getting exercise and attention and that she gets to play with other dogs for an extended period of time while I work allows me to focus on work and not feeling guilty.
What are your favorite activities you share with your pet?
Truck rides in the Scout, swimming in the pool and learning to dive to the bottom to get toys.
Share a fond memory with your pet:
The night a fisherman got too close to our dock… Aria took off from inside the house and ran over the deck and path and then jumped full force into his boat…barking at him all the while…
What life lessons have you learned from your Fur Family?
I have learned that true love has hardly any boundaries and to not let insignificant things in life overwhelm.
