We are a married same-sex couple. Richard is a university professor and David is a landlord. We have a small older dog (Dachshund/Terrier mix) who is about 12 now - she sleeps most of the time and is very mellow once she has greeted you at the door. We have our own space on the upstairs floor, so you will only cross paths with us if we are in the common rooms at the same time. We are mostly private and quiet people, but very happy to converse with guests.
