Housing in and around Denver is not especially cheap, but if you look you can find something. It's not always easy with pets, though.
As for the weather, winter can rear its head anytime between September and June. However, aridity keeps away the chill, the sun shines quite a bit, and t-shirt weather is not unusual in the winter months.
At the top of your screen, there is a Search button. Click on it and type "climate" or "weather" and you will get a variety of results.

There are lots of good areas within 30 min of Denver. It would help if you provide more details on what you are looking for and where you expect to be working.

Colorado is a 4 season state, so you will see snow, ice, subzero temps (on occasion) and the wonderful traffic that these conditions induce. However, generally bad weather doesn't stay around long and we do get over 300 days of sunshine a year. I've heard it often said that if you don't like the weather, wait a few minutes and it will change.

Default Lakewood - Belmar

Check out Belmar in Lakewood. www.belmarcolorado.com. I just moved here and love it! I live in "The Falls apts" which would be in your price range and does allow large dogs w/ a deposit. There is tons to do in this area and there are tons of places to walk dogs (and I believe a off-leash dog park is not too far away). Check out the other apt complexes like "Belmar Park", "Waterside" and there are lofts above the retail shops in Belmar. I believe most of them allow dogs...the whole area is very dog friendly. It is a pretty hip-urban area that is newly developed where an old mall used to be. I am a Colorado Native and have lived all over metro-Denver and absolutely love this place. It's 10-15 minutes to everything - Downtown, sports stadiums, Red Rocks, hiking/biking/...etc. It less than an hour to skiing and mountain vacation spots. In Belmar you can walk to the following activities: Drinking, dancing, bowling, movies, library, fancy eating, not-fancy eating, shopping (everything imaginable), walking path by duck-pond with cool "docks" is just across the street (Wadsworth). STAY AWAY FROM ANYWHERE IN AURORA, THERE IS A REASON IT'S SO CHEAP...THEY CAN'T GET ANYONE TO STAY!

If you want to be out of town, Castle Rock is outstanding, is separate from Denver itself and is 20 minutes from south Denver, and 35 minutes from central Denver. Going north is a much more country feel. Up north, Longmont is nice or anywhere NW of town for that matter.

Smile Apts for senior lady with med. fat old dog

I am moving from Cripple Creek area to Denver or outskrts-Parker-Lone Tree. (around I would like a 1-2 bed that allows my dog. A dog park within the complex would be great. I am on disability and can't walk too far or pay too much, $550-$740. I am a 60 year-old lady but I must move from here. Altitude is making me ill.

Thanks for you help
