We are looking for a home and pet sitter for days early to mid July. Rural location, small acreage. 3 dogs, 3 cats and one very old horse. One dog is a small house dog (Malteese mix) who is now 12 years old and no longer capable of hiking with us. The other 2 are 2 year old Pyranees/Collie mix who are very strong and very active. The cats are all indoor and outdoor, come and go as they please. The horse has been put out to pasture, she is a 20 year old retired Arabian who is more like a 1000 lb dog. She has never been broke due to a major foot injury as a foal. She needs water and the occassional conversation as she has the A Typical Arabian attitude and may not want anything to do with you, since you are a stranger.
The location itself is 30 minutes from town, we strive for our own peace and quiet so if you're looking for attractions or some type of night life, this is not the location or job for you. Our house is not huge and is lived in. We have raised 3 children here I do not expect any type of major housekeeping from anyone. We mainly want the home to be occupied and the animals left at home to be cared for. We have xplornet internet, wifi for your computer and satellite TV through Shaw. There is a firepit in the back yard which you are free to use as well as 2 decks to enjoy the valley view. Please message if interested and available July 6 through 17.
