I live in a 4-plex apartment building that *doesn't allow* pets. At least that's what it says in the lease that you have to agree to. But the owner/landlord has been very lenient on that rule, and now everyone in this place except me has at least one dog. It started with the couple above me. They came here with a little dog. Now they have something like eight! But that is not my rant... Today she came down here to borrow some petroleum jelly because, she informed me, one of her female dogs is about to give birth and is having trouble. She said her only male got the female pregnant. The reason she's having so much trouble is because the female is a Chihuahua (spelling?) and the male is quite a bit larger! :-o What in the world is wrong with these people?! They have EIGHT dogs already, and they're not even FIXED??? What are they going to do with the puppies? These people are on food stamps, have a one-year-old baby and another on the way. Her boyfriend isn't working, and she can't because of the baby and her pregnancy. They have very little money and are constantly borrowing things. I'm OK with that, but how can they afford to feed eight dogs plus a litter of puppies when they can barely feed themselves?! :banghead: I just don't understand some people.
