My very friendly corgi mix needs a pal this winter while I'm visiting Mexico. She does love a short walk daily, as weather permits. Although I have a large yard, there shouldn't be any upkeep this time of year, although snow may need shoveling along the front sidewalk. (Since I'm going to a lot of trouble to avoid the cold and snow, my instincts tell me the weather won't be all that bad this winter.)
My home is modest but cozy and uncluttered, and I have nice neighbors. I live a short walk from Edwards Greenhouse, a colorful and cheering destination on a cloudy day. Trailheads into the foothills are a 5-minute drive. And maybe you like to ski? Bogus Basin road starts a couple of miles from here.
