We're going overseas for five and a half months. We're looking for pet and home sitters in that order of priority. We have two dogs - one a Golden Retriever/Lab. cross and the other,same size, an elderly "bitser". They get taken to the beach (ten mins away) as often as possible- generally dictated by the weather. Plenty of beaches to choose from almost always deserted, and its easier to let them run free than 'walk' them around town (plus we get exercised, too). We provide a four-wheel drive for this purpose (our 'mobile kennel') and fuel, plus car is insured. Our home: we own an old butcher shop in the main street of a small mid-Yorke Peninsula town and have turned the three big rooms of what constituted the shop, into a one-bedroom s.c. flat..... kitchen, bathroom andlounge/dining.Airconditioned (rarely needed due to thick limestone walls) with separate entrance and small yard....we use the original outback loo which has been modernised including lighting!! But basically no garden to speak of. Under the same massive roof, but quite separate, is the original shop residence which we rent out....again, separate entrance and fully self-contained including their own yard. And again, the walls are so thick, its sound-proof. So we're looking for a fit, dog-loving couple to live in our 'flat' and take our mutts to the beach every day or two, and feed them daily. The rest of the time is your own.... Yorke Peninsula has miles of beautiful deserted beaches, good fishing, oyster farms, excellent surfing etc etc; it's a great lifestyle.
