We are seeking a mature person or couple to care for our home and pets while we are away from January 5 to January 12, 2019. We live in Alexandria, VA, just outside Washington, DC. We live within a mile of George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate and will provide free entrance to his home and museum when you sit for us.
We have an active 11 year old border collie with no health issues. He loves walks and chasing a frisbee thrown for him. We also have a 3 year old indoor/outdoor cat with no health issues.
The house is in a beautiful, quiet setting, yet close to our nation's capital. Situated at the end of a cul-de-sac, we back to the water with a 100 foot dock from which to enjoy eagles, herons, fish, etc. A canoe is available for your use.
Minor home upkeep needed, such as watering plants, taking trash/recycles out to street, bringing in mail, and feeding the fish in outside pond. But, in the winter, they are usually hunkered down and don't need much feeding, if any.
No smoking, drugs, or excessive alcohol use. Please provide references.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
