I Hate Our Neighbors...

Was going to write a long ranting post about the situation i'm dealing with, with our ridiculous neighbors. I even got about 3 paragraphs down... but honestly, even venting about it isn't doing any good, so i don't even really want to share... there is nothing that is going to make things any better at this point, so i guess sucking it up and dealing with it is in order. though trust me, that option sucks as well.

Anyway, for those of you who don't follow me on twitter, or who i don't talk to IRL, here's the abridged version. Our condo association only allows 1 dog per family. I married G, moved in and i have 2. Our witch of a neighbor who just wants to inflict as much misery as possible on anyone she can decided that she "hates rule breakers" and reported us to the association. We're now faced with the dilemma of what to do with one of the dogs... the short term solution is to leave one of the pups with ma dukes and rotate them, but reallly? What kind of life is that - for me, for them, for my mom?

Sorry to be so debbie-downer about this, but i'm sure all you animal owners out there can understand how hard it is to have to be apart from your animals. What makes it worse is the fact that G tells me, "they're JUST dogs"... and while that may be a fact, they are MY dogs... MY dogs who have stood by me through many difficult times... times when NO human beings were by my side. They bring me comfort, they bring me joy, they bring me laughter and love. And compared to humans, they don't ask for much in return.

G doesn't mean to come across the way he is, and for the most part he's being supportive. But I just don't think he really gets it. I'm super upset over this, and while he feels bad, they're not HIS dogs... he hasn't had the time to bond with them the way I have... maybe if this situation occured 5 years from now, he'd feel differently, or maybe he's just not a true dog lover the way I and so many of you ladies out there are with your pets.

I mean, how could you not just love these adorable faces?


Guess this turned out to be a long ranting post anyway, huh? Thanks for letting me vent guys and bearing with me...

The honeymoon was amazing btw, and i'll have pics and videos as soon as work stops being a madhouse. Promise...

Missing Scooter tonight...
