We love the outdoors and play lots of sports, surf, ride horses and love visiting new places and traveling together. We have a Golden retriever holly whom could stay with my mother if pets were not an option.
Our property is fully fenced and we have a doggy door to the laundry so pets are welcome but must be kept outside and can sleep in the laundry.
