“ Fabulous sit! ”

Sit Dates Jul-31-22 - Aug-9-22 Sitter kayakgal, Member Since Mar-11-19

This was my second time sitting with Lily for Mike and Jo.  Lily is certainly on my short list of favorite dogs to stay with.... she is super calm, gentle, affectionate and wonderfully easy to care for.  And I can't say enough about Mike and Jo... 2 of the most kind and bighearted people I've ever met... I always have sole use of a car and am always invited to stay extra days to accommodate flights.  They have a lovely home in the heart of Missoula... walking distance to almost everything I needed.  Needless to say, I would not hesitate to return for another stay!

Mike and Jo are very gracious and generous people.  We feel lucky that they chose us for this position.   Lily, the massif is a sweetheart and a pleasure to take care of.  It was so fun to walk her around the beautiful University neighborhood and the short walk to downtown summer events.  She is definitely a goodwill ambassador for dogs.   

The home is a wonderful craftsman style and the garden is a showpiece including all the statuary in among the plants.   

They are good communicators and left easy to follow instructions.  If we have the opportunity to do a housesit for them again, we would jump at the chance.

Mike & Jo were wonderful hosts.  there home was very clean and well taken care of and very spacious.  Lily, there pup, was so well behaved and a great companion.  There little downtown is just a short walk from there home; you can walk to everything.  The small college campus nearby is a gem, beautiful place to walk; many biking and walking trails nearby too.  i highly recommend them!

Mike and Jo are very gracious people.  They have a lovely home and the very best dog ever.  While I was there to help them out,  I was very appreciative for the opportunity they offered me  to go out to Missoula (great town, by the way) and enjoy some time away from home.  I arrived a few days ahead of their departure and was treated like a welcomed guest in their home. It was also extremely helpful having access to their vehicle.  You will love Mike and Jo and you will absolutely adore Lily.  

Thanks again, Mike and Jo.

“ Wonderful home with easy-going, gentle dog Lily ”

Housesitting for Mike and Jo was great. Their dog Lily is easy to take care of and very sweet. She enjoys walks and doesn't pull on her leash (maybe a little if she sees a squirrel, but rarely). She is a wonderful companion.

Their clean, quiet home is in the perfect location... a couple of blocks from good coffee shops, close to downtown, and only a few blocks to campus and the trail up to the "M". Their beautiful yard is a relaxing garden with comfortable places to sit, flowers, and big trees. Their kindness and hospitality make for a delightful trip.
