Company in Sydney

At short notice, we agreed to house sit for a Sydney couple while they went
to Melbourne for a week. The house was in a newish area called Stanhope
Gardens near Blacktown. We had the pleasure of the company of two sisters -
Cleo and Patra who are shitzu/poodles aged five. They were a delight to
care for and soon displayed their individual personalities. They were very
different to look at so no difficulty in knowing who was who! Patra was the
boss and certainly let Cleo know. Unfortunately Cleo has severe arthritis
in her hips and walks with significant difficulty. They both loved attention
and Cleo loved having her belly rubbed. We enjoyed looking after them.

The house had a lovely garden area and once the Sydney weather warmed up
again it was nice to sit outside and enjoy the outdoor area. In six days we
went from freezing cold (with snow in the Blue Mountains not that far away)
to 33 degrees and humidity. From the heater to the air conditioner!
