Hi, I am Nina Cole, a passionate animal welfarist and owner of Nina’s Nannies for Pets. An award winning pet and home sitting service, which was founded in 1998, after I suffered a brain haemorrhage and my husband was diagnosed with MS.
I have always been surrounded by animals since I can remember and when I lost my German Shepherd Luika in May 2019, I could not envisage having my heart broken again.
Six months had passed following Luika’s death and I found myself looking at various rescue centres for dogs looking for their forever home. A puppy was never on our agenda, certainly not at my age, since as any puppy owner knows, they are extremely hard work. Sleepless nights, toilet training and eyes required in the back of your head. When I saw Ellie however, on Many Tears website, it was literally love at first sight.
In my professional life I have worked with some of the top pet brands in the country and I would like to continue this with Ellie. This time however, I want to offer a more personal approach. Ellie may have come from a puppy farm, but trust me, she is no commoner and is used to the very BEST. She is a real little diva, which is reflected in her lifestyle and products she uses.
Living in Dorset, we are already exploring pet friendly restaurants and coffee shops, finding the best walks, hotels and B & B’s. If you would like this pampered little pooch to test or trial your products, stay at your establishment, or represent your brand, please beware, she expects the very best! She even has her heart set on an exclusive little pad on the Sandbanks Peninsula, so I explained that this area was strictly for the rich and famous, not to mention soccer managers, so she demanded that I enrol her at puppy classes and is busy learning her football skills!
