Hi Love4Pits.

I have a question that falls into the 'none-of-my-business' category but I'm going to ask anyway. So feel free not to answer.

I know that your dogs are pretty much more than a full time responsibility for you and I was wondering how it is that you manage to make ends meet. I know that you are quite young and just starting out and it sounds like you are doing really well. Do you make most of you $$ off of competitions? pups? (I can't imagine that being your main source of income)

I'm just asking because I know that when I was into horses and worked with a lot of people in your situation it was really hard for them to survive but they got their income from giving lessons and boarding other people horses.

Just curious.

Hope you don't mind.

Yes I make some of my money from races and pups and also work from home for my brother inlaws insurance company just doing odd jobs on the computer. He was kind enough to alow me to work from my home. I also work on and off with my sister selling Mary Kay which really is'nt full time thing but brings extra income. And I also occasionaly get a friend of friend of friend if you know waht i mean who asks me to train their dog to pull and I require a small fee for that. Yeah its tight living and I've given up alot but its what I love to do even though i am usually just barely squeezing by on bills.

Its not a problem I don't mind you asking me at all .

LOL busy girl. Thanks for answering. I was thinking that it must be tough. It shouldn't be so hard to do something you love!!! Good for you though. And you still manage to feed organic! I bought my cats the organic, holistic brand of Eagle Pack cat food today. And for me? chemical veggies.LOL I plan on having my own garden soon though.
Thanks again

Hi Love4pits! I've read your answer and it had an impact on me. Now I have a job that I really like. But I don't make much money, but I really enjoy what I work. It envolves dogs and I guess you can figure out why I like it so much. I've found another job for me that brings more money, but I won't be that satisfied...And your answer made it clear to me.I don't want in the future to regret that I left. And if I like what I work then I guess it's great.
Kiss Kiss
Nicco

I honestly think that no amount of money in the world can ever truly satisfy you in your job if you don't feel passionate about it. Though I don't make a whole lot of money, it pays the bills, and I like it, but I am not at all passionate about it. If I won the lottery I would definently be opening up something where I spend most of my days with animals. I have thought about going to law school and then I see the attorneys I work with putting in so much time at the office, and I think that is not what I want to do. If it is your passion it is worth the hours you put into it regardless of money, but if it is just for money, no amount is worth your time working away slaving at the office late into the night, weekends. I think if you have found your passion inlife, stick with it, you will be happier in the end, and you are fortunate to have already found it. I am 26 and have not yet found it, though I do have ideas about what would make me happy, and some people never find it.

That's great Love4Pits. I'm so glad you can make it work.

Bogolove you are so right. So many people work at a job that they hate just because they want to make a lot of money or they work forever to get a pension that barely gets them by. Is it really worthwhile to do that? Life is not that short.

Wow, this brings back memories of my brother, Joe. Joe died of colon cancer at age 55 almost 5 years ago. He lived in Colorado and Maui. He was a jack of all trades and loved by everyone old, young, rich, and poor. He enjoyed life to the fullest and worked parttime jobs. He told me that he would rather work part time the rest of his life enjoying himself than work full time at something he didn't like waiting to retire. His theory worked for him since he died long before every retiring. I will always miss Joe and his carefree life.
