In July, I had rented a 3 bedroom townhouse that lasted 6 days, it was unlivable! The owners left without cleaning a thing so for a reduction in rent, I offered to clean. I have 3 dogs and a cat in our house but you wouldn't really know it, the pet smells and cat urine in the rugs in their house was beyond horrible. So I got every dime back that I paid and I have been at my parent's still since. I am now in the process of moving into my new 2 bedroom house, not a basement suite or main floor but an actual house that I am renting.

It's pretty empty right now and I'm waiting for the owners to bring in cleaners for the rugs as there's a few stains but it was just painted so it's in great shape. The yard is huge! My dog will love it.

This seems like a nice cozy place for you and your dogs. You should be able to make it your "own" with some of your own touches.

Wow. That does not look like much from the outside, but once you get in it's pretty spacious! That backyard is heavenly, your pup will have a great time running around out there. What sort of dog is he?

Are you going to have a housemate or will it just be you and your dog? It's a really cute house, and I hope you'll be very happy and prosperous living there :)

Happy moving, I'm sure you and your dog will settle right in.
It reminds me of my cousins house in Alberta, I won't say where just in case I'm right and you don't want people to know where it is.
She's still living there, so she's not the old tenant :D

We have 3 labs, one is mine and the baby of my parent's 2. We have a city bylaw that says there can't be more the 2 dogs per household and I've had years of problems with a neighbor hating us and our dogs so they've had the animal shelter on us with false complaints constantly. I was given a deadline of July 1 to have mine gone so I rented a house not really thinking about it, just my need to keep my dog and it didn't work out so I've been home, just keeping my dog a secret I guess so the shelter didn't find out.
I am so relieved to finally have a place of my own to have my dog and some peace finally being away from the horrible neighbors. Some of you might remember other issues I've posted with family and I've been needing this for SO long.

Since the rent is so low I am able to have the house to myself but if my friend moves back from BC then I'll have a roomate. I'm just looking forward to my own space, not being the household maid and taxi service and not being the punching bag when someone's in a bad mood.

I'm 25 and this'll be my first place so I'm going to enjoy every minute of it once I finally get all moved in. I've been moving since Friday night alone since people who offered to help didn't actually want to so are avoiding me or at work. I'm just waiting for someone to help me with my bed and bigger furniture. I should be all in by Tuesday hopefully. :)

The basement picture gives me the heebie jeebies! It just looks scary or haunted, lol.

Other than that, it's really cute!

Wow what a big improvement! The picture of your living room makes me want to jump in and eat some turkey on the couch while opening presents. Be sure to post more updates as you go!

I don't know if you are still having problems with animal control and your dogs. But here we have a limit on 4 dogs within the city limit. However you can get a hobby kennel license for $10 a year, this allows you to have over 4 dogs for 'breeding, showing, hunting or enjoyment of the species'. If needed you may want to look into that, so you don't have to worry about them taking you pups away.

I sure will post updates :) It's coming along slowly but surely and is actually a home now.

I don't have any problems with animal control now, I actually don't answer to them anymore as the town I live in has it's own. I'm just 10 minutes out of the city but we have slightly different bylaws here. The limit on dogs per household here is 3 and there's a license you can apply for called a fanciers license. I actually applied for it when I was at home, I was denied because the shelter went door to door asking neighbors their opinion. Of course the idiots next door that were making the complaints weren't going to agree so I was denied.

It wasn't my dog that was the real problem actually. He wasn't allowed as a 3rd dog but the complaints began before he was even born. My dad's male is the one who would bark at the door when he was ready to come inside and we never just let him bark but just one peep from him was enough to make the neighbors file a complaint. My dog rarely barks. My parent's dogs will bark if someone comes to the door, they hear a vehicle pull up etc, my dog just goes to the window to see. The only time he barks is usually at night and he hears something that he can't see but as soon as I show him, he's fine.
My parent's neighbors still make their rude comments over the fence if they even see my parent's dogs in the backyard. Seriousely, they don't even think the dogs should be outside at all and if they're in their yard and someone lets ours out, they'll make some nasty comment like "those damn mutts are out again".

I have been in my house for a month and a half, not once have I received a phone call or notice from animal control or my neighbors with a complaint about my dog because he's not a problem, never has been. I do however have a neighbor that has 2 small dogs that bark constantly when they are let out, but never at night or early morning. Am I going to call animal control? Probably not because I know what it's like dealing with a cruddy neighbor who complains about every tiny peep from a dog and unless they leave their dogs out for hours on end, all hours of the day barking, I will leave it alone.

I am much happier now that I can have my own space, my dog and not be dealing with false complaints and crabby neighbors.

Wow that really sucks, I'm sorry you and your family go through that. Animal Control here just looks at the property, makes sure that all animals and healthy and housing for them is up to code (not a puppy miller) and you are good to go for a kennel lisence.
I think it is great that you moved to keep your dogs, so many people would have just dumped them.

Looking at the pictures I think your bathroom is smaller than mine!
Are you allowed to paint?

No way was I getting rid of my babies for no one!


I probably could paint but she just did this year cause the last tenant wanted to paint. I like it as it is for now
