A pet sitter to look after a 16 year old female parson's terrier and 2 gerbils.
My name is Emily Bayes and I live with my husband Darryll, my 2 children and my dog. We live in a lovely, modern 4 bed detached house in Newport Pagnell near Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire.
I am a hard working primary school teacher and my husband owns his own digital consultancy business. We love down time with our children; 11 year old computer loving son and 6 year old energetic fun loving daughter. We would love to be able to take Millie with us on holiday but she hates being in the car so it has never been possible. We have recently added 2 beautiful gerbils to our family.
Our Home & Location
Our house is situated in the northern part of Newport Pagnell in a quiet neighbourhood. It is a detached property boasting 4 bedrooms, upstairs playroom, 2 bathrooms (1 ensuite to master bedroom), large dual aspect lounge, well equipped kitchen, separate dining room and a downstairs cloakroom. Outside we have 2 gardens: the front is an astro turf children's garden and the back is a newly landscaped adult garden. We also have a driveway.
Newport Pagnell is a lovely market town 10 minutes away from Milton Keynes, in Buckinghamshire. There's lots to do around ranging from country park walks to amazing shopping. There's also cinemas, Mk dons football stadium and theatre within a 10 minute drive. We are also 10 minutes drive from milton keynes station where you can get a 30 minute fast train to London. 5 minutes walk from the house is a small parade of local shops and 2 good pubs both serving food.
Responsibilities & Pets
The main reason for needing a sitter is to look after our 16 year old dog. She actually requires little apart from human company. As she is old she only needs a short 20 minute walk a day around the local area. She also needs feeding twice a day and being let out into the garden especially before going to bed.
She tends to sleep most of the day but still love cuddles and fuss when she decides to wake up....
Our 2 little gerbils are called Midnight and Toffee. Being gerbils they are very self sufficient only needing fresh food and water. + More info
