House Sit 39 – Hillbank – SA – Australia

House sit 38 was in the Northern Suburbs of Adelaide in Hillbank. I was looking after Claude and Maximum the 2 burly Golden Retrievers whilst their humans were going on a road trip to see their family. The house was newly redone after suffering a house fire a few years ago. I don’t know what it was about this house but I constantly kept making the wrong turns in the house which I never quite got the hang of. The neighbour across the road kindly introduced himself to me and let me know if there was anything I needed he was just across the road. I like to think of him as Captain Neighbourhood Watch as he was often out the front of the house and on a few occasions I heard him yelling at the hooligans flying down the road. We were going through some crazy heatwave during my stay and I made it my mission to keep the boys as cool as possible as they were strictly outside dogs. I had ice cream containers on the go full of water and made into huge ice cubes. Each morning and night I was putting them in their big water bucket and their paddle pool.
