In 1998, Comfy Creatures was founded by Roberta Lynn Hodge. Working as a vet tech, Roberta would often provide care for pets recovering from surgery or injuries. Realizing that some of the pets would likely do better in a familiar and quieter environment, Roberta began to provide care for them in their homes, visiting them during the day to see to their comfort and needs when their humans were not able to be there. In some instances, when pet owners traveled and could not be home at night, Roberta cared for the pet in her own home. Before long, she saw the need for specialized pet care in her community, and Comfy Creatures was formed. In 2002 Roberta met John (who would later become her husband), and with his help walking dogs and building a website, their popularity grew. Before long, they found themselves needing help, and enlisted the first team member, growing steadily thereafter. Tragically, Roberta’s life ended in 2012, but the organization she founded carries on with love and devotion in her honor. I had been assisting in an Administrative capacity on a part time basis, and began to help out even more in 2012 when the need arose. Though I was still maintaining my full time career in the banking industry, I began learning more about pet care, taking classes in Pet First Aid and learning dog training techniques, as well as taking on some kitty care clients. In a strange turn of events, I was abruptly down-sized in the Spring of 2013. With encouragement from John and the team members, thus ended my 25-year career in banking and I joined the Comfy team full time. John is now pursuing his passions, and the team and I are passionate as we carry on this amazing organization so lovingly cultivated and nurtured by its founders. We continue to grow in number as well as experience & accomplishments, adding Pet First Aid Certification and Certified Dog Training to our list of qualifications. There are 14 of us on team Comfy now, and as we celebrate the exciting landmark of Comfy Creatures’ 20th Anniversary, we maintain the dedication to a high standard of professional, loving, reliable pet care, truly providing the best care, when you’re not there. -Dagmar
