Hi, I’m Shirley and my Husband is John
We run a small engineering business in Berwick designing and building machinery. As many of you would know running a small business is quite stressful and we need a well earned brake.
Our Home & Location
Our home is located in a quiet court in Berwick with neighbours who are great and can be counted on if help is needed.
The house has 4 bedrooms, three living areas, double garage we have ducted heating and cooling. Its the best dog house in town!
Responsibilities & Pets
Our pooches are very spoiled and are inside dogs. They need (demand) lots of hugs and cuddles.
They get fed breakfast about 7 am and dinner between 5-6 pm
Walks would be very welcomed. Unfortunately due to health we have not been giving the exercise they want or need.
Also picking up puppy pooh daily.
We have Kelly (Princess) 38kg, who is a white boxer crossed with American bulldog. She was a rescue dog who is now 12 we have had the pleasure of her company for 10 years
Tyson is 40 kg, 12 y.o. tan boxer and also a rescue we have had him for about 6 years.
Maxie is approx qo kg and also 12 and rescued by my sister who passed away suddenly and we inherited him 3 years ago. He is a Poodle Bichon cross and has delusions of grandure. a bit yappy and a bit deaf
Charlie 20kg to throw aroung and is my darling Frenchie British bulldog cross who is now 2 1/2 He was a very naughty and destructive puppy but pleased to say he has stopped 95% of his naughty ways. He is very energetic and cuddly.
All 4 dogs get on extremely well as they have worked out their pecking order and all seem to be happy with their place. If there is any disharmony it will be over food!
The dogs have a routine when feeding, Max first his bowl is by the rubbish bin, he has to sit nicely and wait to be told he can eat.
Charlie is next his bowl is a “puzzle” bowl to slow him down or he would just gobble too fast and then throw up. His bowl is in the kitchen area he also sits nicely and waits util he is told he can eat.
The two big dogs eat out on the patio with Kelly on your lft and Tyson on the right. Same deal sit and wait to be told to eat.
The dogs have a doggie door which 3 use but Max refuses so we usually leave the laundry door open.
The dogs are allowed on the settees in the family room so you will have to share they do like to be comfortable which is usually have you pinned down and belly scratching or other caresses
We usually let the dogs into ourbedroom at approx 5 am we have cuddles and get crush under their weight until we cant handle it anymore and get up. They dont sleep in the bedroom overnight because they snore too much
