i am so bummed we have to live in student apartments for the first year and somebody is taking care of our little dog.
maka, your quote makes me feel guilty
I'm going through a similar situation... so hard to move and find an animal friendly environment. I may be stuck commuting 1-2hours each way until I can find something. But living on campus is out of the question, since I have 3 cats and a dog. My poor old lab is currrently in ICU... had to race her into the hospital for emergency surgery over the weekend. For some reason I woke up in the middle of the night, and decided to walk her, and she collapsed a block away...she was all contorted and engorged... turned out she had bloat - her intestines were all twisted up above her heart... supposedly they die within a few hours from that...only 20-30% chance she would survive the surgery because she's so old - 15 years - but she made it through... hoping she'll recover. Animals are SO wonderful. Poor Francis the home feels empty without her.
