We own a beautiful 320 acre ranch in southeastern AZ. Our horses live on pasture, so require no feeding. The cat lives outdoors, so feeding requires only that his bowl is kept full and the water fresh. Carmella, our perky 14 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. For this particular week you will also have responsibility for our daughter's two very mellow yellow Labs. They have no eating issues. ?? They do, however, get on the furniture, which is to be discouraged but we will not hold you to it. You did not, after all, train them... or not. They will be happy to spend time outside during the day and Carmella will be happy to have the house to herself. There is a large well-fenced area off the screened porch, so you don't have to worry about them straying.

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. Our climate is ideal and outdoor activities are possible just about 365 days per year. Our views are spectacular!
