there's really no place like seattle. sure, it rains and we're known for our grey skies when it's not the height of the summer, but the area has so much to offer that locals disregard the rain and forge ahead with plans. why not embrace this outlook and give it a try?
if you love the company of animals and enjoy reading books, doing artwork, working remotely from home, cooking or just relaxing with the extra responsibility of taking exceptional care of my beloved dog and small garden, i'd love to talk to you!
my dog enjoys early morning walks and the company of humans. he is easy going and thrives on affection and attention. more than anything he is a huge dork and will love you if you show him affection.
the house is small but comfortable with a large deck (western exposure) and wifi access. if the weather doesn't permit, the inside is pretty cozy! it's brightly colored and full of folk art and interesting artifacts from living and traveling overseas--you won't be bored because there's tons to look at and learn about, if you're drawn towards culture. in general, it's a great urban retreat location for an independent yet trustworthy non-smoking person who's looking to experience seattle like a local and has the flexibility to adjust their schedule to loosely follow a routine the dog is accustomed to.
individuals that would best fit this house sitting opportunity have the following qualities:
*are undeterred by dog hair (it comes with the territory but the snuggling/pet therapy opportunities are unparalleled!)
*have your own car in which to transport the dog if necessary
*willing to walk the dog at least once a day, preferably in the morning
*willing to keep in touch with photos and general updates to let me how things are going with my four legged family member (this may require familiarity with and access to one of the following: viber, whatsapp, , etc.)
*enjoy spending more hours at home than out on the town
(i.e. probably more introverted than extroverted)
**extra bonus points for early risers! (that's the schedule the dog is most attuned to.)
