David and Dona have been married 40 years and own a home in Hawaii. We are non-smokers, extremely neat, tidy, quiet, and trustworthy. We are seeking opportunities to use our knowledge and experience with home ownership and pets to visit family and see other parts of the US and Canada. While you are away we will provide a watchful eye over your home, pets, and trusted possessions.
We both love animals. We were brought up with pets and while raising our son we had a Australian Shepherd named Barkley. Currently we are living in a Condominium and not able to enjoy having our own pet. Being retired we have spent lots of time caring for, cuddling, and walking family and friends dogs Kuma, Dasy, and Kailey Li and cat, TC. We consider all of them part of our family and know how important it is to for them to feel safe and secure as well as loved, when their owners are away. We are committed to providing the same loving environment for your pet.
Dave was a businessman/investment broker and Dona was a healthcare executive who is a Registered Nurse. Our experiences living and maintaining homes in the Pacific Northwest (Big City & Rain), Northern Idaho (Rural & Snow), and the tropical climate of Hawaii (Rural, Salt Air, & Tsunami Evacuations) enhanced our abilities to be organized, flexible, problem solvers and crisis managers.
We love being active, enjoying new experiences, and adventures. Whether it is our many years of boating travels, outrigger canoe paddling and racing in Hawaii, walking Marathons, our travels around the US as well as England and Australia. We like challenges and our approach to life is with a positive can do attitude.
We have an adult son who is happily married, a wonderful grandson and one granddog. We had the pleasure of taking care of both our fathers after retirement for a ten year period. Both have now passed on but they left us with an education in the art of aging gracefully.
We now have the freedom to enjoy meeting new people, loving and caring for animals, and exploring new places. It would be wonderful to occasionally Housesit closer to our family who live on the Peninsula in the Bay Area of California. Consider allowing us to be of service to you while we figure out what is next for us!
We would love hearing from you and understanding your current needs. We always strive for a respectful and trusted relationship with you and your pets.
Mahalo (Thank you),
Dave & Dona
