My name is Alex and my wife, daughter and I live in Dalgety Bay, Fife with our scruffy outback pup, Ernie (rescued while living in Australia). We live in Fife, Scotland, and are new to THS in the last few weeks and hope to meet plenty of new people and furry friends through this in the future. Have heard nothing but good things!
Hi @Alex_and_Ernie and a warm welcome to TrustedHousesitters and to the Community Forum
I just had a peruse of your profile and it looks fab, I am sure you will receive many applicants to come and look after the adorable Ernie for you, (that’s such a lovely photo of him btw!)
I have attached a blog and a thread that you should find helpful
Also, remember you can use the spyglass symbol at the top of the page next to the TrustedHousesitters logo and search for any questions that you may have as they have most likely already been answered on here and of course if not then please just ask!
I have attached a thread below, it would be great if you could join in with this as we think you could offer great feedback and your input would be a great addition.
What a lovely dog! I’ll be looking out for your listings as I’m up in Fife a lot visiting grand children who live very near Dalgety Bay. Do you accept sitters with children? They do love to stay with Granma.
Thank you! Definitely some in there. He was a lot darker in colour as a young pup, and has a 100% terrier personality (chases everything that moves!). But he’s a fair bit bigger (15 kg and quite long) and has a very soft coat. Apparently his mum looked more like a Maltese.
Thank you! Please do save our listing. We have one sit coming up soon, and plan on several other long weekends over the next year. Ernie’s very patient with our 2-yr-old, but has been pretty wary of young kids most of his life (following a bad experience before he came to us), so we’re generally not in favour of sitters with children, but would consider on a case-by-case basis depending on age etc.
@Alex_and_Ernie aww, I love BTs, my heart dog was a border; Pep (thats him in my little icon),lost him in 2017 aged 16. I’m in many BT groups. Just beautiful I would love to come and care for Ernie in the future.
