Offering room & pet sitting in the Basque country
Posted May 28th, 2011 - 4:19 pm by from Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain (Permalink)

My name is María and my dog´s name is Miko. We live in
Vitoria-Gasteiz, a quiet and nice town which is the capital of the
Basque country. Its the European green capital 2011. Apart from that
title which is politics´stuff it is really comfortable for living. We live in the south, 5-10 minute walking
you´ll have "plein-air-nature" already!.

I need some help during the summer with MIKO. I have to go and come a lot and cant him allways. So I can offer you some nice place

Miko is a very special dog, obviousy for me the most special one. I
adopted him from the pound when he was tooo little, so he wasn´t time
enough with the mom. I have worked a lot with him and with a
proffesional and now he´s great. He doesnt like bulldogs and dogs with
that nose. He loves playing with the "pelota"(ball), and running next
to the bike, swimming in the lake (17km bike),etc.

I need to know he is gonna be cared, loved, fed, etc.

So anyone interested in taking care of my dog and discovering one of the medieval cities Victor Hugo said you should visit?.

Hi Maria,

What dates are you looking for care for Miko?

I have a lot of experience with many animals - once had six dogs, always rescue dogs & cats - ever since I can remember. I grew up with them.

I do not have any experience of speaking Spanish, is that a problem? I can learn Miko's commands :-)

Look forward to your reply,

Hey ,
Actually I would need the help from the 2nd of july untill the 9th of august kinda . I know it is a long time but some days and its the first time I separate that much from him but cant take him. I just dont want to make him crazy from one house to another, 1 week here, another week in another place, etc. Ill come back at the end of july so from the 24th of july untill the 10th of august I mainly need help.Because Ill have to work around 12 hours a day. You could scome sooner or leave later. Vitoria is such a paradise in August. No people.
He is trainned manly in basque with some words in spanish but it is easy, now I live with a german and 0 problems. But you will improve your language skills for sure because the main population doesnt speak any english. He is used to languages.
We have several lakes 17 km frpm town. The old railroad route is being converted for going with the bike/walking, etc. Me & miko go a lot in the summer...and it is really great.Of course I will leave you a bike.He knows how to go next to it with the rope without a problem.
I loved your profile. I´d love to visit Whales, seems to be totally peaceful & magic.
Thanks again for the answer.
I hope everyone has a great day!

M & M , ;)
