We are looking for a house/pet sitter to care for sweet Lucy while we travel. A 7 year old Australian Shepherd, who has perfect house manners, needs feeding and longish walks twice a day and regular petting and ear scratching.
Our house is an updated 1950s ranch with fenced yard, back deck, front patio, two BRs, study, 21/2 baths. Large TV with cable and subscriptions to Netflicks and most streaming services. SONOS speakers throughout the house. Strong WiFi signal. All new kitchen appliances and heating/cooling system. Washer and dryer are older but no problems.
House is in a leafy neighborhood, five minute walk to Trolley to Philly and to small shopping center with Acme, dry cleaner, Starbucks, Supercuts, 15 minute walk to "downtown" Media with its small town vibe, many restaurants, Trader Joe's, cute shops.
Our cleaners come every other Thursday. Our lawn care guy comes as needed. Some potted plants on patio and deck will need occasional watering.
In non-rush hour traffic, center city Philly is a 30 minute drive to history and art museums, live music, theaters, and great restaurants.
