Great people, animals and property

Gloria and Liz are two lovely, friendly ladies, with a great property and animals. They made sure we were totally happy with the care of their animals before they left, which shows how conscientious they are. They were a pleasure to sit for and we still keep in touch, even though the opportunity to sit for them again has never again arisen, unfortunately.
