Brisbane Pet Sit


We are taking a break from our house sit in Toowoomba to do a pet sit in Brisbane for a few days. We are taking care of Jazz, a yellow Lab, while her mum and dad are away. We took her out to the local dog park for some off-leash time with a tennis ball.


By the second or third toss, it was a very moist tennis ball. And rolling about in the dirt, it quickly became a very wet and dirty ball. This, however, did not deter Jazz from her appointed mission.


After charging through the dust to get the ball a dozen times, it was hard to find the ball on the ground if Jazz missed the throw.


Fortunately, most of the time, she did not miss: Jazz gets her ball.


She's a sweet dog and well behaved. She spends most of her time in the house. This house is on the shore of the Brisbane river. We've checked out the price of a nearby house, similarly situated and sized and it runs a little shy of AU$3M. It is a pretty big house but not huge. To give you a feel for the size and location, below is the view from the main floor looking out towards the river.
