Great Pet Sitter in Tracy!

Assured Pet Sitting Service!

Whenever my wife and I go out of town we have this stress (atleast my wife does), about leaving our cat home alone. If you guys have Pets / Dogs / Cats or even plants that need tending to when you go on vacation/trips, I have just used and highly recommend this awesome pet sitting service! 

Lil Anderson, is the owner of Assured Pet and Home Sitting Services and Tracy resident. Lil and her son who run the company are local Tracy-ites and Lil has been taking care of Animals for 45 years. My wife and I were very impressed with her service right from her knowledge of cats and her promptness, to her communication skills. She responds immediately to texts, calls and voice messages. She is also fully licensed, bonded and insured and a member of Pet Sitters International and the Better Business Bureau.

We went to Hawaii for a week and the local animal shelter was not a good option for our cat, who is really timid and gets really traumatized and moody (like my wife.. ok, ok kidding) :-), so we opted for a pet/home sitter. We were worried at first, because I own a couple of nice cars and also, we were nervous about strangers in our home. But when we met Lil, we were immediately put at ease by her professionalism and trustworthy demeanor. She was also very upfront about everything.

We returned home to a healthy cat, our home exactly as we left it AND Lil even kept a daily diary (on a couple sheets of paper) of her visits to our home with notes on how our cat behaved and other things around the house, like mail and alarm issues. She gave me updates via text messages and even sent me a picture of my cat.. very impressive.

You cannot go wrong hiring Assured Pet Services and Lil Anderson. Real Peace of Mind. I honestly cannot recommend her highly enough!

Going on Vacation? Call her, you won't be sorry!

Out with Corvette, In with Viper!!

The most brutally insane vehicle I have ever driven!!

Since I sold my 2003 Corvette, I've been pining for a Viper GTS. Had my heart set on a Dodge Viper for a long time. Originally wanted a 96-97 Blue/White combo, but those are extremely hard to come by. Only 1500 or so were ever built, so I kept an eye out for any other colored GTS I could find. Preferably Sapphire blue or Silver.
I finally found one in Escondido, CA.
Had it shipped all the way to Tracy, CA. It has only 32,000 miles on it.

A little more about the car.

V10, 8 Liter Engine, Deep Sapphire Blue Pearl, 6-Speed manual Transmission.
Black leather Interior. One of only 130 ever made of this color in 2001 without Stripes.
In 2001, there were a total of only 827 GTS produced. These cars are put together by hand. I am super proud to own one of these. Just 10 years old and it is already a classic and a collectors car. This body style was only made from 1996 to 2002. It is the most popular distinctive and loved design of all Vipers. Chrome Alloy Viper wheels. Borla Exhaust. Upgraded Audio system with Bluetooth, USB, MP3, Sirius Satellite Radio and iPhone inputs.

It is very raw and sometimes uncontrollable. It has been said that the Dodge Viper is a real drivers car and is extremely unforgiving if not handled right. Seriously, the car wants to kill you.. Very high Torque and no Traction control.
There were just 7000 Viper GTS ever produced worldwide. I've been told that only about 60% exist on the road today.

I am still crazy about corvettes and still own my 1970 Stingray, so I will continue being a 'Corvette guy'. But I Love my Viper!

Oh well. Fun times!! :)
