Introducing Mei-Noey and Me
I am a single retired female seeking a house and dog sitter when I travel. I am looking for an animal lover with previous house sitting experience and one who would feel equally responsible to care for my Shar Pei, Mei-Noey, and for my home. Come to Penticton and enjoy the beauty and many activities that BC's South Okanagan has to offer!
Our Home & Location
Noey and I live in Penticton, BC, Canada, located in the scenic Okanagan Valley and renowned for its superb wines. Our home is a small 2-bedroom rancher with fenced back and front yards. There is a radiant-heat gas fireplace in the living room that warms the entire house, but electric baseboard heaters are available if back-up is needed. The house is on a bus route, close to a recreation centre with pool, movie theatre, Okanagan Lake and shopping.
Responsibilities & Pets
I have one dog. Mei-Noey is a 9-year old clinically blind Chinese Shar Pei. She was rescued in California and I fostered her before adopting her. It sometimes takes awhile for Noey to warm up to new people ... especially men. She can be a bit nervous at first but is also very inquisitive. She gets two meals a day, breakfast and supper, and a bedtime snack. She requires eye drops to be administered four times a day. Noey is very good with the drops, as she knows she will get a treat after. She manages well with very limited vision.
