After 3 years on the East Coast, this Midwest girl recently gave up the house I was renting. I've chosen to go explore for a year or so with the goal of eventually finding a new home base. I'm traveling with a family member, my little #10 dachshund. She adores all animals and people, and grew up with other small and large dogs. While I realize that that's not the norm, we are a great team and would love to come care for your animals, homes, gardens.
I'm a fit and fab 56yo widow. A designer...jewelry, dog accessories, simple reminders, almost anything. I've had dogs my whole life, small and large, healthy, senior...not so healthy. Have sat with friends dogs in my home off and on for years, until I had 4 dogs of my own. I grew up with parakeets, gerbils and mice. I've had small snakes and turtles as pets. While I've never had my own cats, I've spent quite a bit of time around them, and have fed and cleaned litter on occasion. I used to ride and still love horses. While I don't have experience, I've spent a little time around chickens, guinea hens, and Alpacas...and the idea of having a farm sanctuary one day calls to me.
I've owned homes, had power tools, had an inground pool that I maintained, and am an advanced Master Gardener.
Non smoker.....allergic and can't really be around it. An occasional wine drinker, healthy eater, chef, traveler, all around good and kind human.
This is my first attempt at a profile too much? Want more? Just please let me know....
