Retired couple seeks house sits w/furry friends!

Retired couple seeks house sits with furry friends, wagging tails & purrs!

We (Rick & Anne) are a travel-loving couple who recently completed a home renovation, along with some handy smart tech (although we still prefer belly rubs and purrs over voice commands!).

We are always up for a walk ā€“ especially with a wagging companion by our side. We've been blessed with both dogs and cats over the years (those soulful feline eyes!), and understand the joys (and occasional chaos) of pet parenthood. Your furry family will be showered with love and attention!

Anne's a gardening lover with a knack for edible flora and beautiful flowers. Iā€™m a retired Air Force civilian with computer skills & home improvement tools (Anne wants me out of the house šŸ˜Š).

We enjoy exploring new places, keeping fit, tinkering with home projects, and meeting kind people like you. Non-smoking houses preferred.

References happily provided!

Thank you for letting us share a little of our journey,

Rick & Anne

Rick and Anne are the most genuine, nice people I've ever met. Our trip was a disaster from the start and unfortunately a big inconvenience for them and their plans, yet they were so kind and understanding. My dog took to them immediately I couldn't believe it. They took great care of him and he looked for them and pouted for 2 days after they left. Says it all.

And after a few days, even Mookie, who has never had anything to do with a non-family member, was playing and cuddling with him. Anne and Rick always responded quickly to our calls and texts, and they texted and emailed us regularly with photos and videos ... MORE

OMG, what wonderful people. Warm, communicative, and loved my dogs. They had to to take care of one of my older dogs (14 years) and he was ill and died while in their care (a caretakers nightmare, I expect). I wish my husband and I had been home but if it had to be this way, they were the perfect caretakers. I know my dog, Rodi, was well cared for and loved. They also left my home so clean that it couldn't have been cleaner. Also, they knew my husband and I would be in mourning and they ... MORE

Green garden!

Make sure the garden & the potted plants are thriving when you return home. A house sitter will do this for you.
