Alice (retired RN) and Rick (retired banker/private business owner) want to stay active, visit new places, learn new things, and immerse ourselves in the local area. Both of us are very responsible, organized, practical and orderly. We understand the needs and responsibility of caring for a home and animals. We believe in treating everyone as we want to be treated and caring for your home and animals as we would care for our own.
While we have be fortunate to travel throughout the U.S.., Spain, France, and England, we want to experience these and other places more as a local, rather than as a tourist. We want to learn about new and different locations and cultures, to interact with local people and environments.
We own our home and have for over forty (40) years and are very experienced in all areas of caring for and maintaining both homes and grounds. We owned and managed an eighty (80) acre horse farm, which we recently sold. Consequently, we believe we have the knowledge, experience, and initiative to house sit virtually any home.
We have had and loved many animals, getting our first two cats (brothers) in the first month of our marriage (47 years ago). We have extensive experience in the care and training of dogs and cats (cats, maybe not so much). On our farm, we raised and cared for many horses, including mares and foals. We love animals and take the responsibility of caring for them very seriously.
