My husband and I are looking for someone to care for our very old dog Ripley and watch our moun- tain home. We live near Gross Reservoir, 10 miles west of Boulder, near county open space and national forest-- lots of trails to hike or bike, or take a walk around the lake. Additionally, there would be some indoor and possible outdoor plant watering. At least two leash walks a day, and two feedings a day for our very old girl, who is deaf and mostly blind, but has bowel and bladder control, loves her walks, and eats well. She sleeps most of the day, and knows how to use the doggy door, so getting away for several hours at a stretch is not a problem. We are located in a small subdivision with private lots, and very friendly neighbors. Boulder is a 20 minute commute on a paved winding mountain road-- lots of good restaurants, university, music in town. Our driveway is a bit bumpy, so would recommend a higher clearance vehicle, but this is usually not a problem!
