Trustworthy Twosome

54, editor

53, tech guy for two magazines

We are Lillian and Tim, empty nesters in our mid-50s, and we love exploring new places and cuddling dogs. Tim (a former magazine editor and current tech guy) and I (an academic editor) both work from home, and we finally figured out that "home" can be anywhere. If we house-sit for you we all benefit -- we get to travel more, and you get the peace of mind of knowing that your home and pets are in good hands.

We enjoy walking and hiking, so your outdoors-loving pups (and adventuresome cats!) will get plenty of sunshine and fresh air with us. We owned a home for 25 years and so are well versed in the myriad tasks required to keep a house running smoothly.

In addition to the dogs and cats we've adopted over the past 35 years, we have raised four Seeing Eye puppies and fostered for a pit bull rescue, and we have experience with leash reactive dogs.

We're just starting out on this adventure, and we'd love to chat with you about how your needs mesh with ours.

Lillian and Tim took amazing care of my four pets and my home. They were extremely flexible and accommodating. Lillian provided frequent updates on the pets while we were gone and detailed information for our return. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of pet/house sitting.
