I am a newly minted family physician trying to figure out what to do with my career. I will be going to Alaska for 4 weeks for a short term assignment. I will be unable to bring my dog and so need help taking care of him while I am gone.
I live in midtown, which is a fun and relatively artsy part of Memphis. My place is 3 blocks from a small grocery store, and 5 blocks from a cool coffeeshop. A yoga studio, gym, diner, and a couple of restaurants are in easy walking distance. I am a short distance (20 minutes walking, 5 minutes drive) from Cooper-Young, a trendy sub-neighborhood of memphis with great restaurants, bars, an independant bookstore, independant video rental place, and an independant record store.
Memphis is fun to explore. You can go to Graceland (!), various museums of the local rock/blues history, and the National Civil Rights Museum. There is also lots of live music all over the city.
I live in an older duplex with 14-foot ceilings and a walk-through floor plan. The place has a washer/dryer, central air/heat, a dishwasher, internet, as well as front and back porches. The immediate neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors are friendly. It would be best if you had a car, but depending on the situation we may be able to work out something so you could use my car while I am gone.
There is little to do in terms of house maintenance except bring in the mail and keep the place as clean as you wish it to be while you are here. My main concern is care for my 10 year old pitt-mix (well, he was a rescue and I'm not sure what breed he really), Jesse. Jesse loves walks, playing fetch, and hanging out coffee shops. He is pretty mellow and loves companionship.
I am looking for a dog lover who will spend 30 minutes to an hour every day playing with him or walking him, feed him, and keep him company at night. The ideal person would be someone young who wants to explore this part of the country and wants a quiet place to write or just think.
