Our family will be taking a trip to Arkansas for my grandmother's memorial leaving Saturday October 2 and returning Monday October 11. We are looking for a loving and responsible person or couple to stay at our house and watch over our dogs, Pepita and Stella, our backyard hens, fish and plants. Our house is in a safe neighborhood, conveniently located to town along the "railtrail" bike/walking path and hiking. There is a large yard and nice relaxing back porch with a hot tub you are welcome to use.
Our dog Pepita is a gentle, laid back 50 lb lab/shepard mix and Stella is a 40lb cattle dog rescue. While Stella is more nervous and anxious than Pepita, she is very sweet once she warms up to you. Both need feeding and water daily and enjoy walks or hikes. They have a dog door but I prefer they stay in at night. The chickens need daily food and water and their eggs gathered. We have some areas in the backyard that need watering and a few houseplants as well. Please let me know if you are interested in caring for our house, animals and plants while we are away.
