SATURDAY afternoon is Farmhouse Rocks time. Some great music from Red Tape Riot- Let's hope the weather stays as good!  And yes, we will have a television available even though there will be a shortage of springboks….

And from November 1st the Farmhouse will be open from Tuesday through till Sunday. Only closed Monday unless it's there is a special event -and then we will open Monday as well.!

TEARS Carnival this weekend

By now, everyone knows about the successful way in which 153 dogs were safely removed from the kennels last Friday night and placed in foster homes. At the time,  no one knew how long the fostering would be necessary for. In some cases, new fosterers are needed. If you can help, please let Helen know. Her number is 078 347 6693.
A wonderful spin-off has been the fact that 22 dogs have found permanent homes during this time.

See the poster below for the TEARS canrival this weekend.

House & Pet sitter  –  My name is Carol,  most of you know me from the shop Micky’s Mouse Trap. Working at Camel’s Rock shop gave me the opportunity to meet a lot of people and I am so grateful to have met wonderful residents from Scarborough as well as holiday guests. I’ve got some news, after giving a lot of thought about what gives me joy in life; I decided to expand in that field. Anyone who knows me well, know how I love animals, especially dogs. I have been pet sitting/house sitting on and off for the last 5 years. Every pet is special to me and I treat him or her with love and attention. In addition, I enjoy caring for a home and I very much like to iron! If you need someone to do houstiting, pets sitting or need an extra hand in your house, I would like to have a chance to meet with you. If you own a vacation rental property, I am offering a cleaning service to thoroughly clean before each renter starts his stay.

What one of my client sent me:  “Carol took exceptional care of our two dogs and one cat – I don't think the dogs have ever had so much fun or so many varied walks! During our absence we also appreciated regular, unprompted updates of the animals and house. When we came back we found the house in an immaculate condition and the pets were very happy”. Let me know if you need additional references.
