Expecting to be paid for services rendered does not constitute being "money hungry" and caring about the conditions your pets live in does not make you a "cop lover." Laura cares about the pets she watches and treats them like her own.

She calls 20 times a days and if you don't answer your phone she's over banging on your door. She gets your family members involed trying to turn them against ya, she truned my boyfriend and I in for suposly abusing our animals and is trying to get my parents to sign the complaint also. She agrees to let you pay whenever but changes her mind and wants the money right then and there or she won't give the key back. She knew my boyfriend had surgery (tyroids) but came over and made him raise his voice when he's not supose to. like I said she's nothing but a money hungry, cop loving bitch. DO NOT TRUST HER. She lies...

Oh man, it's been like forever since we had a good crazy pet person thread.

East Main Animal Clinic has checked in, but we all know they're nothing but an abattoir for the animal companion-industrial complex, a fact that will be reiterated numerous times by the collectors and the collector-curious.

IF you are abusing your animals I would hope a conscientious pet sitter would report you. And IF there are criminal things going on I would think you would be smart enough to not let someone INTO your home to witness them. But obviously Laura has one up on you in common sense and brains.

Considering my previous posts that's saying a whole lot.

Well there's a port on a western bay
And it serves a hundred ships a day
Lonely sailors pass the time away
And talk about their homes

And there's a girl in this harbor town
And she works layin' whiskey down
They say "Brandy, fetch another round"
She serves them whiskey and wine

The sailors say "Brandy, you're a fine girl"
"What a good wife you would be"
"Yeah your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea"

Brandy wears a braided chain
Made of finest silver from the North of Spain
A locket that bears the name
Of the man that Brandy loves

He came on a summer's day
Bringin' gifts from far away
But he made it clear he couldn't stay
No harbor was his home

The sailor said " Brandy, you're a fine girl"
"What a good wife you would be"
"But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea"

Yeah, Brandy used to watch his eyes
When he told his sailor stories
She could feel the ocean foam rise
She saw its ragin' glory
But he had always told the truth, lord, he was an honest man
And Brandy does her best to understand

At night when the bars close down
Brandy walks through a silent town
And loves a man who's not around
She still can hear him say

She hears him say " Brandy, you're a fine girl"
"What a good wife you would be"
"But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea"

There has been multiple complaints about this "pet sitter". Go to the police and file a report and press charges.
She got in trouble last year for harassment, trespassing, and posting pics and a add on mc.com for a dog that was not her dog, and not for giveaway! That is why she had to change her name and get a new account on mc.com. Anyone remember that?

I have had numerous inquiries from several Animal Shelters in Montana because of Laura's harrassing phone calls and emails to them. I have been told that she is now on their 'do not answer' list. I know she has been reported to the Miles City police Dept.

I would caution anyone who is hiring a pet-sitter to do their homework before trusting a stranger with the care of your beloved pets and the keys to your house.

I have posted this on another thread but here goes. I have known Laura since elmentary school. I can tell you the things this personis saying about her are completley false. She is very harmless. I can't think of anyone who loves animals more than she does. Yes, I know she can get carried away but she is NOT a "money hungry cop hugger". That says a lot about your character when you slander someone else's name like that!! Shame on you!!! NOBODY's animals are in danger with her. I can assure you that. She can be trusted.

What's wrong with hugging cops?
Top
Posted by Stan Wheeler (+1195) 9 years ago
Laura took care of our dog in an emergency situation. She did a great job. Our dog loved her. She had a key to our house, and never had a problem. She quoted us a per day price, and had us sign a contract. When we returned, her bill was for the exact amount she quoted us.

Did you not sign a contract with her? I thought that was pretty standard for her.

I would not hesitate to call her again if we need to.

Before you hug a cop, ask permission. The lesson about trying to hug cops without giving them some sort of warning is not worth learning hands on.

Also, this is the sort of thing that makes milescity.com awesome. Please don't interrupt unless you have something constructive to add to the conversation. By constructive, I mean any personal accounts about the accuser or accused, if you can figure which is which.

Laura has pet sat for our family for years,she takes our dogs to get their shots and nails done. The dogs love her.we signed a contract. This family has no problem with the way Laura cares for our pets,they are played with,fed and watered. She takes pride in her work.

Posted by Rhonda (+25) 9 years ago
I know Laura pretty well and I think it is a shame that this is going on. She is a very caring person and when she accepts a job taking care of someone's pet, she truly cares about doing a good job. All she expected was to be paid for her services when the job was over. Any one would expect that. Keep up the good work Laura, you provide a valuable service to many.
Top
Posted by CK (+851) 9 years ago
Plain and simple. We have used laura's service for years.
She has always done fabulous. She should be charging more than she does.
She has saved us in a pickle many times. You should plan on paying for services
Rendered. She should not have to watch your pets on credit. Your post did nothing to
Lessen her credibility

Top
Posted by Smiley (+847) 9 years ago
I've said this before and I'll say it again. I can NOT attest to her pet sitting abilities as I never have used her service(and never would). I CAN say she does make many harassing phone calls if she has any inkling of anything being done wrong to animals. She called me over and over and over and over, left at least 6 voicemails, and I didn't even know who she was or what she was talking about. I had the unfortunate situation of living a couple blocks over and she found my dog that had a bit of a running away problem. He got out about 30 times. I wasn't abusive, I just couldn't handle the problem properly because I didn't have a gate and I don't believe in locking dogs to chains.

I can also say that the 3 times I delivered pizza to her home it smelled like pet pee and poop strongly. Maybe that's because she has lots of them, I don't know, but I found it disgusting the second I got to the door. The door wasn't even open yet and the smell was overwhelming.

Plus she doesn't EVER tip and one of her checks bounced(Which I'm sure was an accident, it only happened once and I think it happens to the best of us). So I can kind of agree with the money grubbing point, but if you had a bill, you do have an obligation to pay. I understand it's annoying when she calls and calls...and calls. Just report her for harassment, because even bill collectors have rules.


I personally do NOT like Laura as a person, probably because she is borderline PETA crazy, but I don't think she intends to do wrong. She does love animals obviously, but I believe she is a bit psychotic about it, and might need some help to learn how to communicate inter-personally. That's my opinion.

This isn't meant to be slanderous or perpetuate the rumor mill, I just wanted to give my two cents about the situation.

Posted by BrandiGB (+40) 9 years ago
ya all can say what you want about me but just so you know it's my opion about her and none of you are going to tear me down or make me change my mind about her. like I said she had NO RIGHT turning us in for animal abuse and she had NO RIGHT getting other family members involed, begging them to turn me in also. Anyone of you can walk in to our home and see that our animals are NOT abused. and if she wants to keep it up she WILL be turned in for hurassment and whatever else.

So why did you even post on here to begin with? Did you not expect people to question or comment about your "opion"?

On a side note, I found a pack of Tyroids on the corner of 7th and Main. Only one had been used, I hope you have a backup for your next encounter, but I guess they are only 69 cents at Wallyworld. And, what is an opion, is that a cross between an onion and an apple?

This is what you do. If there is a debt, pay it. Go to the police fill out a report, call Brian and have him come over and check if you are taking care of your animals the correct way and show him that there is no abuse. If she continues to harass you, call the police and press charges, along with trespassing.

Posted by Smiley (+847) 9 years ago
No, I am not a delivery driver anymore. This was a few years ago. I wouldn't have revealed that earlier (Maybe I did, IDK.) Perhaps it isn't exactly relevant to the conversation in the way you were thinking, but it goes to say that at the very least Laura may not be able to wait for payment for services, she isn't loaded with cash sitting on an inheritance in a mansion. She has real life problems like we all do, and she's probably only "money grubbing" as described because she needs it. Any employed person can be considered money grubbing IMO. Think about it, if your paycheck didn't come when it was supposed to, you would be kinda perturbed right?

A while back my dog got out and we couldn't find him before it got dark out it turns out he got hit by a car and was left to die on the side of the road and Laura took him into her home and took care of him and posted pictures on this website to try and find the owners.....long story short she took great care of him and I cant thank her enough...

None of you are going to make me change my mind about her.

Califgirl:
How much do you charge?

Laura charges $ 5.00's a trip. She came over 11 times that comes out to $ 45.00's. She told us that it was $ 75.00's, So where did the other $ 30.00 go that she took from us. She's a rip off the way we see it.

If a calculator requires 2 AA batteries to compute 11 x 5 properly, but is instead offering 45 as the answer, should you:

a. add one more battery.

b. change all of the batteries to fresh new ones.

c. get a solar calculator and wait for a sunny day.

d. Issue a plea to Mr. Stabio to "Please come back!"

e. None of the above, 45 IS the right answer.

I don't believe it's libel. Laura would have to prove all accusations against her are untrue, and seeing as the facts presented are all either opinion or true, she does NOT have grounds for libel. If it was libel, you could never leave another negative review online for any business.
