We are heading to Newcastle for a Christmas family get together and would love someone to come and care for our home and fur babies while we are away. We have two cuddly dogs, Milo and Sam. Milo is a pugalier - Pug/Cavalier King Charles and will be 13 months old at Christmas. Sam is a Springer Spaniel and will be almost 2 at Christmas. Also, we have Coco, our Burmese/Black Russian cat who will also be about 2. She just does her own thing and may or may not want to interact with you. All the animals use the pet door and come and go as they please to the backyard. The dogs do not require walking - unless that is something you really want to do - as they have great fun running around our half acre block. The animals all sleep indoors. Our home is a 1930's style home wiht beautiful ornate ceilings and period features. There are three steps at the front and eight at the rear. It situated in a rural environment of half acre blocks about 20 minutes north of Toowoomba. The nearest shopping is at Highfields - five minutes drive - where you will find two small shopping centres - one Woolworths and one Coles, service stations, hardware, arts and craft shops and lots of little cafe's. Toowoomba is a large regional city and has everything you would expect of a large country town. Being a half are block there is plenty of room for yoru RV if that is your means of travel. Our home has three A/cs, ceiling fans, solar power (plus mains) and solar hot water. We would need our house sitters to feed the animals of course and also to water the gardens if it does not rain. We need to head to our holiday by the 19th December and the earliest we would be back would be the 30th, but we are flexible and can stay away longer if that fits in with your plans.
