Hello, My husband and I are a retired professional couple. He was a director in the engineering business and I was a nursing sister in a major hospital.

We have had two much loved Jack Russells.  Our first one was all white and was called Polar Bear.  Our latest Jack Russell was called  Skipper. and loved retreiving balls ans sticks.  Sadly, Skipper died aged 14 and is missed very much.

 We live in Devon , England and we visit our daughter who lives in Lane Cove, Sydney, each year for about three to six months.  Our daughter has a Border Terrier.  She is also training a Labrador as a guide dog for the blind.

We are very interested in doing house and dog sitting as it gives us the chance to see other parts of Australia and it also gives a natural break in the time we spend with our daughter. We had six very successful house / dog sitting periods in Cairns, the Blue Mountains,St Ives, Kingfisher Shores and twice in Lake Macquarie .We would be happy to supply references.

If you are interested in learning more about us just reply and we will telephone you to provide whatever information you might need. We would be very happy to have a "face to face" chat via or Zoom.

In 2021we are available to do house / dog sitting during November and December and in 2022 during January, February and March.

Best regards, Pat and Neill Irwin
