Lovely 2BR/2BA Notting Hill Flat with very sweet dog.
My husband and I have recently relocated to London from Boston. We love to travel, but as our dog Lucy is our baby, we adjust our plans around making sure she will be well cared for while we are away. She is small and sometimes intimidated by other dogs and I don't feel it would be fair to kennel her. We hope someone caring and competent would like to stay in our home and enjoy all the love and affection Lucy has to give.
Our Home & Location
Lovely 2 bed/ 2 bath flat, minutes walk from exciting Portobello Rd. Market. Apartment has an attached conservatory as well as a large fenced garden.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have a small chinese crested dog named Lucy. We got her from a rescue site seven years ago; she has always been a little timid and doesn't usually like a lot of quick movement. She is almost 10 yrs old now and when she's not sleeping, usually under the blanket, she loves to walk around the neighborhood. If she is outside and it is sunny, she will need sunscreen as she is a hairless variety. Conversely, she will need her coats in the winter. Lucy loves to chase squirrels and meet other dogs (though she can get scared by the latter sometimes) and should be on the lead unless secure in our back garden. She does not fetch per say, but adores the cat toys on sticks we have.
Lucy gets fed in the morning and if she has not eaten by the afternoon, we will "doctor it up" by adding a tablespoon or so of wet food in the evenings. Also, she drinks a lot of water, so we are often refilling her bowls. She gets at least 3 walks a day and if weather is nice and are heading out to a dog friendly cafe or pub, she would probably love to tag along. If its raining, she may refuse to do anything on her walks and I put out a wee pad by the front door....
She is sweet and loving and if she is enjoying a lot of pets she may bump your hand with her head if you try and stop. She will also jump up into bed when she is ready to sleep and may bark to try and hurry us humans along on her schedule. + More info
