We are a small family living in south Denver with our two dogs, cat, and chickens.
Our Home & Location
We live in South Denver across the street from Rosedale park. There are also 2 other parks, Harvard Gulch and Kunming park, that are separated from Rosedale park by streets to the East and to the South. Harvard Gulch park has a rec center with outdoor pool and a Par 3 golf course. Kunming park has some of the best sunsets in Denver. There is a lightrail station about 10-15minutes by foot and that would give you easy access to downtown or a city bus stop 3 blocks away on Broadway. Our house has 3 bedrooms (King downstairs, Crib downstairs, and Queen upstairs), 2 bathrooms (one upstairs, one downstairs). We have a toddler so there are baby gates present, but can easily be taken down which the dogs would love! We have a lovely backyard with patio, garden boxes and decent sized grassy areas with large shade umbrella, table/chairs and gas grill. We are walking distance to lots of great eateries (BBQ, Sushi, Poke, burgers, Indian, Ice Cream, Thai, Fried Chicken/beer, Mexican and Breakfast/brunch) and the Sunday Farmers Market on Old S. Pearl Street.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our dogs, Walter a Bernese Mountain Dog and Kiah a hound/shepard mix are on the older side so they do not need a whole lot of activity (especially in June) but they enjoy a daily walk around the park that is across the street from our house, 2 meals a day, fresh water and outside to relieve themselves at least every 6-8 hours. The yard will need to be cleaned of dog waste every few days at least (or else they will step in it since they prefer to go in particular spots.) Our cat, Tela, is very independent and enjoys going inside/outside during the summer. She is a free feeder so you would only need to put food in her dish once a day. She does not use a litter box, so no scooping litter. Our chickens are pretty low maintenance as well. They have a large water container and feeder that just needs to be refreshed and filled every 2-3 days. They do lay eggs daily so the eggs just need to be collected every day or two and of course they are yours to eat. They can be let out in the yard (the dogs do not bother them) but they don't have to be and the pen just needs to be closed/locked up at dark (we do have the occasional racoon family that roams the neighborhood.) We will also have a garden (in raised beds) and depending on weather, it may need to be watered every 3 days or so if there is no rain. There will hopefully be some veggies ready by June which you would be welcome to pick and enjoy. We also have a few house plants that will need watered once a week.
