Hello. We are two retired teachers who need a house/pet sitter while we are out of town. We live in a spacious house in the foothills of the dramatic Eastern Sierra in California. We are 45 minutes from Mammoth Lakes, and an hour or two from Mt. Whitney and Death Valley. There is great fishing and hiking in our area. There are many lakes and the scenery will take your breath away.
We ask that you care for our dog, Clyde, a sweet Golden Retriever, . He is used to us being home, and needs someone around at least some of the time. He needs to be walked each day, and fed morning and evening. Our cat, Phyzzie, is older (13) and is shy at first, but very sweet once she gets to know you. She needs to be fed and medicated am and pm.(medicating is easy - just crush the pill in with her food).
We also have a garden which will need harvesting (so you can eat the goodies!). We have a large yard, but everything is on automatic timed watering, so there should be no worries there.
It gets quite warm in Bishop in the summer (80's and 90's), but at our 6000' elevation, it is always about 10 degrees cooler than town. And nights always cool down so it is very comfortable.
We hope you will want to stay in our home.
