Last week I received notice from my apartment management that my neighbor has been bothered by my dog's barking during the day. The lease agreement states that if my pet bothers my neighbors I have 10 days to permanently remove the pet from the property. And I had 72 hours to respond to management.
I have found myself fortunate enough to have quality friends who are willing and able to step in to help me find an alternative living arrangement for Ellie. She stayed with the normal dog sitter while I was in Boston and for the next few days. This weekend I will be taking Ellie to her new home. She will stay there at least until January when my lease is up and I will be looking for new housing that will accommodate the both of us.
I'm incredibly sad that this apartment has not turned out to be a long term place for me and Ellie. Since it is not something I am able to fix right now, it is what it is and I have to deal with it.
I have to say, coming home is just not as fun as it used to be.
