Reliable honest person for spoilt dog required!
This is the first time using this type of service, I’m a housewife and my husband is accounts manager for a firm in ottery. He loves trains as you will see, and I do dabble in a few different crafts. It’s our second marriage and we have been together for 22 years, we have 5 adult children and 8 grandchildren between us as well. We love our grandchildren to bits hence loads of pictures of them. We inherited poppy from my adopted mother who passed away in 2015, but poppy isn’t used to being around other dogs, although we have tried to get her to mix but she doesn’t want to, and she doesn’t like cats. It was only when we got her that she started to have regular walks and now she loves them. The reason we have joined is I recently trace my birth mother who lives in France. We want to spend some quality time with her and her husband and obviously cannot take Poppy with us.

Responsibilities & Pets
Poppy enjoys going out for walks twice a day,morning and evening. She is fully house trained, and part of our rear garden is fenced off specifically for her. She is fine being left on her own in the house for periods of time although she loves to rearrange her bed position and covers on the settee to her liking and hide her biscuit treats. She enjoys giving you here soft toys for you to throw for her and if she goes out into the main garden she will play football with you, she can leave her food in the morning and then eat it at lunchtime,so don’t panic there, she is up to date with her vets and they are only up the road. All we ask is that you look after her with love and to keep our house as you would keep yours.
