Dog Sitting in Narrabeen Sydney

Dog sitting in Narrabeen

Dog sitting in Narrabeen, Sydney is one way of getting a dog for Christmas. This is my first official dog sitting experience in Australia.  I am so excited and I have already taken Milo the dog I am sitting for a walk. Not only will I get some great exercise, I get to live on the Northern Beaches for even longer!

As you may have gathered I love the Northern Beaches and I would love to live here for a few months here and there every year! I am lucky enough to be able to get a 3-month visa and stay in this beautiful part of the world. Thank you, universe!

There are lots of things to do in Narrabeen, due to having the lagoon and the sea, it’s perfect for SUP – (that’s Stand Up Paddling), kayaking, walks, cycling, surfing (of course) and swimming in the rock pool.   Due to the walking the dog, I haven’t managed to get over to it yet! It’s a very chilled out place to live with plenty of cafe’s and restaurants nearby.

One thing I really love about dog walking is that I tend to notice all the different trees and I just have a few moments to snap a tree, plant or flower along the way!

Here’s some I found on my dog walking trips.

Milo was such fun to care for, she was no bother and besides a morning tease when trying to put on her collar, she was a dream to look after.

In the New Year I have a new dog assignment and this time it’s in Manly. I little dog this time called Pepper. I can’t wait for that either… dogs bring so much love into your life.  I met Pepper at Christmas and she is a very different type of dog to Milo – she is quite snappy and moody apparently,  we will see!

Happy New Year to everyone. Here’s to creating an amazing 2018!

Peace, love and harmony to all xx

Connection, Compassion, and Companionship 

For the moment I am happily settled in Ubud. Although I absolutely love dogs, this particular long-term dog sit I was offered didn’t quite work out for me in the end. The universe realised I needed my freedom and it signalled it through my body… so the choice was pain or let go! I choose to let go of a commitment instead of feeling the pain, a no-brainer but in the past, I would have just done it anyway! So a bit of bravery on my part to make a sudden change and throw my current plans in the air.

In life, you have to put your health first. I am sure I will do some dog sitting in the future, just not right now.  The dogs were gorgeous three little poodles and they were so much fun to be around… Sometimes decisions are hard to make!

Learning from Experiences

In life and especially it seems when you are travelling and/or living in Bali; you have to adjust to the rapid changes taking place that help us to move on in our lives. It makes us learn from our past experiences without having to relive them. Honesty and trust are key qualities in moving forward and that means not only trusting others but trusting in ourselves.

Our beloved Marsh

On another dog note. Our beloved Marsh died this week and we all feel very sad and I just hope he has made a safe journey to doggie heaven. We are all grateful that he gave us so much love and joy. He will be forever in our hearts. Not being a dog lover he won me over and everyone he met, he was a very special soul. Thank you, Marsh – we miss you already!

My Favourite Guest house and my new family

I am back in my favourite guest house Merthayasa 2 with the lovely people who run it and they welcomed me back with open arms and I felt instantly ‘at home” so I am so grateful for their kindness to me and making me feel I belong here in Ubud.   The sense of belonging and feeling cared for whilst living alone in a foreign country is something money can’t buy. The Balinese are very open-hearted, gentle people just the right type of people to be around in times of transition.

Being Grateful…

Gratitude is key in times of change. For me, my life has never really been planned, and what happened a few years back left me on a bit of cliffhanger and moving forward I needed to make some radical changes in my life. It all came as a huge shock and I am lucky to be in the place I am right now. It doesn’t bear thinking about any other outcomes but to live in the present and be eternally grateful that I have been very lucky and in the future, I hope I am able to reciprocate in helping others.

Some more of the lovely dogs I have met whilst living in Bali…the quickest way I find myself connected with compassion is through the temporary companionship of the many dogs I meet and interact within Bali and on my travels.
