We are in need of a house sitter for 10 days. We have a lovely, quiet husky and a couple of chickens. Akira is 9 years old, and is on tyroid medication (1 tablet twice a day) and had surgery a month ago for a cyst removal from his right front paws. Normally we would have him at a kennel but the vet would prefer him not to run around to much. The 5 hens are just a morning feed and collecting eggs whenever during the day.
We live on the lake and are 1.25 hour drive from Ottawa, 4 hours from Toronto. Unfortunately, swimming is not available at this time of the year but skating and ice fishing are abundant. Akira, our dog is happy to go for walks, but also fine hanging out, inside or outside. He does not need to be leashed around the house. There are a few ski hills in the area, lots of places to go snowshoeing and cross country skiing.
We need a mature couple preferably. Non smoking a must. We do have a car available if necessary as we are 15 minutes from town.
