About Richard McCurry and Virginia Mateo

Virginia, a consolidated translator, is presently dabbling in motherhood with a blend of canine psychology. Richard – who has apparently made Chinese more fun to learn than skiing through his startup Newby Chinese – enjoys the odd nappy change, while also revelling in the fact that his ginger-gene has triumphed over Spanish blood.

    Thought provoking and very entertaining video.
    Your comment about minding the dog could become a business opportunity. Most pet owners would prefer to leave pet with someone and not in a sterile kennell. Maybe you can begin a ‘Pet Air B&B’. Locals can register and offer the service. Selling feature is that your pet becomes part of their family for a few days. Fees could be negotiable.
    Good Luck
