House and Dog Sitting in May
We are two women who have retired and moved to Oakland about three years ago from Ann Arbor, Michigan. In Michigan we owned two stores , one of which was there for fifty years and the other was there for thirty years. We both have degrees in Social Work and went to the University of Michigan for graduate school. And we love our home and our new neighborhood in the East Bay
Our Home & Location
Our home is in the Rockridge area of Oakland which is a perfect mix of great shops and restaurants, a library, a very comfortable and diverse neighborhood and a short walk to BART and buses. Our home is a two story Craftsman that was built in 1912 but remodeled with great taste to include five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, large kitchen with GE Stove and Refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher and ample counter space. We also have an elevator and a shared driveway and a garage. There is also on street parking. There is a patio outside with tables and chairs and a small fenced backyard.
Responsibilities & Pets
The major responsibility is to care for our beloved dog. She is fed twice a day and goes on one or two walks each day and also loves to be outside in her fenced backyard with company. We would like our home to be well cared for and kept in clean and orderly condition and we have a lot of houseplants that need to be watered every few days.
