Since I retired 7 years ago from owning my own arts business, my husband and I have been living in Mexico half the year every year. We are an outgoing, energetic, curious couple who love new adventures. Since we have chosen to be abroad part of every year, we chose not to get new pets again but rather have made ourselves available to foster the variety of animals we meet in Mexico. Pet sitting in the States is not new to us-we have watched again and again our neighbors and friends pets for years but putting ourselves on Mindmyhouse is a new endeavor. I have a feeling it is a good fit.
We prefer longer term pet/house sits so that we can get acquainted with your animals and your community.
We enjoy having new experiences. We own a home in the mountains in Colorado but always look forward to discovering someplace new and meeting new people.
We have lots of experience pet and house sitting in the United States and in Mexico.
I am a flexible, easygoing yet resourceful independent mature woman who speaks 3 languages and can navigate the craziness of living in a foreign culture. I am a cat person who turned into a dog person who now has a goat obsession. Chris is a kind, gentle hearted soul who is very handy around the house and very loving towards all animals. He also speaks Spanish. We both love to cook and hike and bike. We usually have our own car with us to get around. I sometimes bring my sewing machine and my other creative hobbies (embroidery, drawing, sketching, reading) to keep me company. Chris often brings his mountain bike and several good books.

Denise and Chris recently watched over our home and pets (1 dog, 1 cat) while our family went on a 2 week trip. They were attentive and loving to our pets and home. When we returned the house looked better than when we had left it, my grandmother's house plant had been revived from near death, and our pets were happy and healthy. Denise and Chris went above and beyond in preparing our home for us by leaving homemade treats in the fridge, notes about their stay, and making up the bed with freshly laundered bedding. I will highly recommend them to anybody looking for a sitter!
Recently my husband and I took a two week trip internationally. I read Denise Emma's profile and reached out to her right away. From the first moment of contact, she and her husband Chris were friendly, responsible, easy to work with and trustworthy. I was thrilled when they were able to sit for our dog Lucy. When we returned Lucy was happy and healthy and the house was sparkling. Denise and Chris brought so many "extra touches" to their role. They left us fresh muffins, a log of Lucy's activities while we were away, and sent photos while we were away so we could see how well Lucy was doing. I cant say enough positive things about their sit with us. Thank you so much, Denise and Chris!
We started out when I had booked the date wrong and asked if they could come a day early. Happily, Denise assured me, not a problem. They are both naturally friendly and met many of my neighbors who enjoyed their presence. They assembled my fire pit, that had been sitting and waiting for a year. My cat means everything to me. She is old and has a special diet. She was well cared for, and I so appreciate all they have done for her and myself. I received updates and photos while out of country, with assurance of her well-being. Upon my return I was greeted with a happy cat. Denise had written a diary/ book of Gigi's (cat) days and titled it "Gigi's Summer Vacation" including a hand drawn photo of Gigi. Along the side was a little vase with wildflowers in it. Thank you, Denise and Chris, from the bottom of my heart.
