We have a place to live in Pennsylvania! A lovely townhouse, with plenty of room for the boys to romp (nice basement…or “shuffletorium,” as I’m calling it). The owners met with our pack leader, and were sufficiently impressed by his portrayal of our fine and well-mannered Labradors that they agreed to rent us the place, even though they would not normally consider someone with two big dogs. It’s going to cost us a little more in rent than the other places we looked at (with one-dog mandates), and we are paying a double pet deposit, but it’s worth it to have a home for all four of us.
I’m relieved, I’m thrilled, I’m excited. We have a 12-month lease (and I have a square-footage count)!
