Hi - we are looking for someone to come stay at our house the week of Thanksgiving to take care of our cat and 13-year-old golden retriever. Both are very friendly, loving animals. They need to be fed morning and evening, the dog needs to be let out morning, late afternoon and before bedtime, and taken on a short walk each day. Our dog is on medicine for nighttime anxiety (which he takes with peanut butter - it's a treat for him!), and if he's feeling anxious at night, sitting on the floor and petting him will help him relax and fall asleep. He's usually pretty good, but may have a harder time while we are gone, which means he'll be pacing and panting around the house and generally feeling stressed, so we'd like someone with a lot of compassion and willingness to give him a hug if he needs it!
