Our home looks out upon the majestic Sangre de Christo mountains about 12 miles out of the small Colorado village of Westcliffe. We are at 9000 feet, winters can be cold and windy, but hardly a day without sunny skies. Our home is completely modern, but in addition to the gas furnace, which we hardly use, we heat with a wood burning stove since we are usually here. Our dogs are two black labs, 12 years old, and starting to show their age. They do need a short walk daily, fed 2x per day, and let in and out of house several times per day. They are sweet dogs and appreciate the attention you can give. They can be left alone in the house for up to 7 hours, but not on a daily basis. We have Internet and cable tv; however we use cell s, not a land line. Verizon is the only cell service that works here.
