How many Dogs?

?Tis a slow summer season on old coho-l, but in  case there¹s anyone out 
there still at home in front of their computer, I ?d appreciate some 
help gathering a bit of information.  Specifically what I need to know 

?  How many homes are in your community?
?  How many dogs are in your community?

The reason I ask is because we¹re currently working on getting approval 
for our cohousing project in rural Colorado.  There¹s a big concern in 
these parts (rightfully so) with dogs chasing livestock and wildlife.  
The land we¹re under contract to buy is adjacent to critical wintering 
range for the local elk herds.  What I¹ve told the neighbors and DOW 
folks is that people in cohousing have far fewer dogs than regular 
homeowners because there¹s not the safety concern, there¹s just not alot 
of room in a tight cluster of homes for a bunch of dogs, and in 
cohousing you can kind of share your neighbors dog.  I¹m sure that this 
argument would go alot farther if I could provide hard data from 
cohousing communities.  So please answer these 2 questions for me.

And of course I¹ll post a tabulation of responses to the list.

Thank you,
