Looking for very special sitters for a very special little dog

We will be going to Sicily sometime this Spring/early Summer. We are looking for sitters who can come and stay here in the Jura mountains for 2 weeks- first 3 days with us to 'learn the ropes' and get to know a very special old doggie, Slinky the 15 year old dachshund we adopted from our daughter. Our other dog will be going to our neighbour. Pudding the old and lovely cat will also need a cuddle or two, and feeding/watering.

Free accom for a couple with a car if wanted, provided you have valid European Licence, man and woman bicycles- dates not fixed yet. We would need references and meet beforehand as we really want Slinky to have the best of care. he needs sub-cutaneous injections twice a day for his diabetes- but it is very simple and easy, and you will be shown exactly how to do this.

Slinky is doing surprisingly well- and we are still looking for great sitters for him in April, for 2 weeks. We didn't think he would still be with us- but he is so enjoying his simple life of cuddles, food, sleep and more cuddles... bless his cotton socks.

So hope we can find someone- I'd hate him to have to go into kennels.

Odile, have you looked on Rent-a-Rentner? You can post an ad as well as search through their listings of folks willing to do dog care.

http://www.rentarentner.ch

Rent-a-rentner is a listing of retired folks who want to do occasional jobs. Most of these folks listing their services here bring not only a lifetime's worth of experience but also the sense of responsibility that is hard to find in younger folks who do casual work. The Rent-a-rentner platform is a great idea, a win-win for all.

I can't come to your place, but if it's kennel or nothing, Slinky is welcome to our place.
