Update on Darling!

I’m so excited to share the news that Darling found a furever home! Not only was she adopted, but her little sidekick, lovingly named Lil Darling (after Darling) was adopted by the same family. Here’s the wonderful story:

This couple at the Humane Society expressed interest in adopting a dog and possibly even two. They were being told by one of the Humane Society volunteers that there was this little dog named Lil Darling and how she was named after this other dog, Darling.

Since the couple expressed interest in two dogs, the volunteer brought Darling out and Darling immediately went over and put her head in both laps of the couple! Talk about double the love, double the happily ever after! Here is Darling and Lil Darling at their new furever home!

Doggy DNA?

Happy Monday!

I don’t know about you but it was difficult getting up this morning due to Daylight Savings Time. On the plus side, it will be lighter out longer!

So, it has been awhile since we’ve been apartment hunting and there is something that I didn’t notice as much before. The “Pet Policy” apartments and condos have. We went to one complex and they literally swab a dogs mouth “doggy DNA” as they call it, when you first move in. That way, if you don’t pick up after your pet, they will test the poop and be able to match it to the doggy DNA swab and fine you. What!? Maybe this is commonplace now but my goodness! There are also a lot of pet breed restrictions I have noticed as well. For instance:

“The following is a non-comprehensive list of dogs that are not permitted:
Akita, Rottweiler, Doberman Pinscher, German Shepherd, Pit Bull including American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and Bull Terrier, Chow…” The list goes on. Has it always been like this? I realize I can always find a place that doesn’t have these restrictions but I was shocked by some of these “Pet Policies.”
