Hello, my name is Bob – why is this site called Vickie Lynn’s Home Pet Care then? Because Vickie was my wife and partner in life since 1988, but in 2016 I lost her to cancer.  Vickie had owned and cared for dogs her entire life, and back in 2002 she started this business because she recognized that our neighborhood needed a dedicated and professional local pet care person; one that lived in the heart of the historical Heights and would serve our neighborhood (and surrounding area) only – in other words, close at hand and open 24/7, 365 days of the year.


From 1995-2011 I worked at NASA/Johnson Space Center as a graphic artist/designer, but unfortunately, when the STS shuttle program was shut down, so was my job. So what do I  know about dogs and cats?  Since our marriage began we owned both, and I often helped Vickie evenings and weekends, becoming a happy dog walker.  So it was only natural that soon after my layoff I joined her as a fulltime partner.  We also jointly owned and ran a daycare center from our home, which had a large, fenced in front and backyard.  Come to think of it, there hasn't been a day since that I haven't spent hanging out and interacting with dogs - dogs of every age, every size, every breed. 


After Vickie’s passing, I sold our house but stayed in the neighborhood I’ve known and loved for over 20 years now.  I relocated to a nice apartment at Yale and 22nd, where I continue the business and its reputation, along with my happy partner, Jake, an SPCA mutt seen below (and above with his good buddy, Hero) who keeps life fun and interesting!

Jake Says:


"Well, if you won’t take me with you, I think the least you could do is let me stay at home!  I am a very responsible pet and I promise no parties!"
