Suzi’s Cover Letter:
I love all things dog: chow, accessories, beds, -gy style! You can’t go wrong! And since I’ve babysat my stupid sister’s four kids at once, I can handle anything. Dog poo is nothing after a 7-year-old throws their poo at you.
Plus, I have great fashion sense. So when we do the “dog walk”, all eyes will be on us!
Woofs and Wags,
I'm just your average girl who wants a kick-ass life and... love! If I could be a superhero, that would be AWESOME! I'm currently a "phone actress" looking for a really cool career. Don't get me wrong-- I love giving a hand to dudes who need someone to chat with. Everybody needs somebody! But, my parents keep telling me I need a respectable job. Sigh.
