Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 2 dogs
We have 2 dogs both bitches neutered and in good health as the vet said in very good condition.
Our white dog Bonnie is a Turkish pointer and needs a walk every morning minimum half and hour and the brown dog Brandy was a street dog and is of mixed breeds she will let you know if she wants to walk or not.
Both good on recall but if brandy the brown dog decides I don't want to, she will take herself back home when she has an opportunity to.
Very well behaved good with children and other dogs once they get to know them.
The garden needs watering regularly as the sun can be very strong during the day and our potted plants every other day.

We have neighbours who rent the property on one side who are absolutely fabulous with us and our dogs they have 3 children a 15 year old boy who speaks good English a 6 year old boy who will teach you turkish if you teach him english. The 3rd child is approximately 2 years of age.
The parents can communicate but little English is spoken but we do understand each other.
The other side of the property has a small track next to us and a typical Turkish village couple live there with there poultry and olive grove in a small dwelling they are nice and keep themselves busy by working the land but speak no English at all
Around us the land has been parcelled off and development of new builds have recently been started so what was our isolated position has become a small community of holiday lets and home owners still relatively small but our views have not been spoilt by this.
