My name is Laura and I am from California. My husband is Friedhelm and he is from Germany. We live in a suburb of Washington DC. I am a high school teacher and my husband is a doctor for the Veterans Administration. We have three children who are in college and one, 13, who still lives at home. We love pets, travel, and books.
We need someone to come and take care of our pets while we go through a busy time in our lives. This will be mid-April. If the individuals would like to stay longer, they are enthusiastically welcome. We have two dogs, one cat, and one lizard. Feeding all pets and taking short walks with the dogs are the requirements.
We live in Washington, DC and there are a lot of free cultural activities in the area. I could take a weekend to show youaround, of course. In addition, the metro is a mile away and we have a car you could use.
We have a three bedroom home. We also have a guest room/family room. Since our oldest children are in college, you could stay in the guest bedroom or a children's bedroom.
Again, DC is the capitol of the US and there is a large variety of things to do. We live in a suburb which is close public transportation, to the NIH and over 200 restaurants.
