|it's a dogs life|
|I love my 3 small dogs like they are my children. And what really gets me is that when looking for apartments, so many doors get slammed in your face because you mention you have pets. My boyfriend and I have gone to see places dressed like we looking to buy the fucking place, we are well mannered, honest and most importantly to the landlords, GOOD pet owners. You can explain until you are blue in the face that they don’t bark often, they are house trained and that you are a very responsible owner. Fuck I even have their vet records on hand to prove that they have all their vaccines and that they are de-wormed regularly and protected against fleas. I have pictures of our current place to show how well we take of it. But that’s not fucking good enough to you. Why the hell not? A toddler that could draw all over the walls, a cat that can piss on the floor or scratch the shit out of door frames is preferable to a small 10lb dog that sleeps all day and does not cause any damage what so ever? To the bitch that told us we had the apartment then, when someone without dogs applied you retracted the offer and gave us back our damage deposit… FUCK YOU. To the guy who LAUGHED at us when we said we had small dogs… rot in hell. I am sick and tired of it. As dog owners we are forced to live in second rate apartments, and pay through the teeth for it. I have been told on several occasions “we do have a better quality apartment but its no dogs allowed”. WTF!?!|
Lastly, to the irresponsible dog owners who don’t pick up after your pets, who don’t train them properly, you are a moron who has ruined it for the rest of us.
All I ask is that landlords give people with dogs a chance! We are responsible and we are good people. Why can’t you see that?
