We are a senior, retired, professional couple searching for a loving pet and housesitter for the dates: December 15, 2021 to January 11, 2022.
We have one thirteen-year-old mellow Jack Russell Terrier, Chico, who is aging gracefully, but still requiring one short walk a day. He has no health or medical issues. Mostly, he sleeps all day, ventures into the garden once in awhile, and loves to sit in the recliner with you. He sleeps with his caregiver. He has enjoyed many a housesitter over the years as we are housesitters ourselves, and we travel often.
We live in Maple Ridge, a semi-rural, small-sized town outside of Vancouver, B.C. Our town has many cultural and outdoor opportunities for young and seniors. There is a thriving Seniors complex nearby, 3 local mountains offer hiking and skiing and Whistler is only a 2 hour drive away. Provincial and Metro parks are nearby for walking the dog and there is a community pool and large recreational centre, library, and arts and culture centre in town. Past sitters have realliy enjoyed the opportunities for the many activities offered here.
Our home is a modest 2 bed,+ 1 den house in central Maple Ridge with a fully fenced back garden. We ask that you exercise the same care of it as you would your own home, and especially, provide loving care and companionship for Chico. Housesitter must have recent references, and security/police check. We do not expect to pay for services as house and utilities are rent free. Interested parites should contact njolson8 .
