  • Description


    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.
