I recently decorated my place to where my place feels more like "me. " But 4 out of the 6 people in my building own dogs and a big dog just moved in downstairs. I really want to live in a dog less community but my research of dog-less communities in Mountain Town have born no fruit.
If I have to leave my community I will, but only after I get another subsidized apartment. Unfortunately I suspect there are no subsidized apts. in communities that are dogless.
pet ownership has tripled since I graduated from high school in 1981. (And owning a home looks like an impossiblility in this lifetime)
