We own a beautiful 320 acre ranch in southeastern AZ. Our two horses live on pasture, so requie no feeding. The cat lives outdoors, so feeding requires only that his bowl is kept full and the water fresh. Carmella, our perky 13 year-old Portuguese Water Dog, lives inside and is totally a people dog. She is fed twice per day, but sometimes chooses to skip a meal. When we go out for awhile, we leave her on the screened porch, which has a doggie door. She does not get on the furniture or sleep with us. Where we live in AZ is at 5000' elevation, so our seasons are mild. We are surrounded by mountains and the National Forest borders our southern property line. We are a one hour drive from Tucson and Bisbee and Tombstone, popular tourist attractions, are less than an hour distant. Our climate is ideal and outdoor activities are possible just about 365 days per year. Our views are spectacular!
