We need a pet and house sitter in the beautiful Saanich Peninsula of Vacouver Island . We are close to Victoria and very close to the famous Butchart Gardens . We are a retired couple in our artistic phase . Our house is full of the artistic expressions of ourselves and friends . I am an avid gardener and my husband, a wood turner . Our dog is a smooth Collie who needs 2 walks a day to avoid becoming a “couch potato” . She is however a dog that is too polite / well trained to get on the “ couch “! She was rehomed from a breeders last summer to have a one dog home ... she is now happy, sweet and at home .
