    Hello, I am Smokey.....a dashing, intelligent, sensitive, kind, caring,compassionate and handsome German Shepard belonging to The family. My humans are Smyth and David and we live outside of Blenheim . Smyth is a stay at home mum( she is wonderful, funny and kind) and David is a farmer( he seems a bit gruff but Smyth assures me he is good and my instincts do tell me she is right). They have four children ages 15-5(Oh dear, they can be handful...especially the 5 year old...but I do love them fiercely). They homeschool using an ecclectic approach. They like to take day trips, hike, and swim and sometimes I am able to accompany them. We live on a 5 acre lifestyle block in the top of the South Island where we share our home with 2 other dogs, a horse, a pig, 3 cats, 3 goats and 11 chickens. We are a 10 minute bike ride into town and a two minute walk to the Wairau river where I especially love to go and swim!

    We like to explore, so you will see more then our little farm. We enjoy day trips as well possible trips into huts. Learning about farming is a possibility as David is a farmer. We lease a 3,000 acre farm 20 minutes outside of Blenheim. Horse care, animal care, milking goats, gardening, is part of our daily life,

    I am looking for someone to help Smyth with the kids. She needs someone to work alongside her with the children. Playing games, going for walks and bike rides, reading, helping with academics if they need it, helping them cook and garden, as well as mucking out the horse paddock....I would do it myself but I do not have opposable thumbs. I must tell you before you arrive that while the children are lovely, they are wild and crazy so you MUST have a sense of humour and patience, otherwise you might think you have stumbled into a chaotic, emotional, nonsensical parallel universe which you will want to exit out of immediately!

    Acomodação

    We live in a two story open plan 5 bedroom two bathroom house. The guest bedroom is small but open and light as there are two large wall to wall windows that open out to the garden. The bed is a double and the bathroom across the hall. We are a family of half vegetarian, half meat eaters and Smyth hates to cook as no one appreciates her skills in the kitchen....I personally LOVE Smyths cooking....it's not her fault the children and David have the palettes of donkeys!!! . Ideally I would like you to cook a few nights a week with kids helping:)

    We have a bike you are welcome to if you would like to go into town. Otherwise, Smyth and the children will enjoy taking you to different places:) If you would like, I am usually free, so perhaps we could go walking or swimming together?
