Dream jobs

Recently at work we had a discussions about what our dream (ordinary) job would be. Which may be tempting fate as I work in the NHS. It has got me thinking and i am torn between a professional dog walker or a postman. The main reason I am drawn to these jobs is it must be so lovely to be out walking all day!


  1. Dog walker's working conditions might be better but then no union like posties.
    Ur dog customers might be friendlier than the public waiting for their post....which always seems to be delivered in the PM instead of AM these days....and seems to be 3 days worth in one day! :)

  2. I would agree up to a point - but I can't get the mental image of our poor postman out of my head as he brought our post in thigh high snow and temperatures of -12 last winter. And he was still smiling, bless him.

  3. Hi Jenny,

    I have a sister-in-law, who is seriously thinking about taking up dog walking and pet sitting, as a job, to get herself out of the rut she is in as an optometrist.

    Not for me, I'm afraid. I like the great outdoors as much as the next man, but I am not really an animal person, I'm afraid.

    Postlady might be okay though. I feel sure that the post on my round would be delivered much earlier than the 2pm that our current postman mangaes to struggle around in !!
