No pets...

I have been looking for places to rent and of course everything I see says No pets.  Not even outdoor pets.  Now it looks like I am going to have to try and find a good home for my 3 year old Sheprador (part Australian Shepard/ part Labrador).  I love my dog and really don't want to give him up.  It makes me sad.

I know a lady with a farm and I may resort to asking her to take him on.  But I feel bad asking her a favor when I haven't made much of an effort to stay in touch with her.  But even if she can't take him she may know someone who can. 

It just makes me so sad.  I know I am not a great pet owner.  We don't play as much as we should. But it breaks my heart to think how he would feel if I just leave him somewhere and never come back to get him.  He loves us so much and I feel like I am failing him in someway if I give him away. 

Not sure what to do....

Oh honey, that is such a tough situation to be in. We rented a house for few months and had to have someone take our cats in during that time. It was so hard. I feel for you. Hopefully you will find the perfect place that will allow pets. Are you using a realtor to find your rental? If so, they should be able to find you something that will allow pets. Best of all, the realtors are free! Also, nice job on your new "blog look".

Just breaks my heart...I'm sad. I hope you find a place that'll take pets. Keep looking. I'll bet there's something out there. We had to let Rach(daughter) keep Barley when we rented in AZ. That was hard enough and she was family. Aaah!

I'm so sorry. Why are you leaving where you are currently living?

That just kills me. I cannot even imagine! I thought my marriage would survive another dog, I would take him. Hopefully, the farm thing works out. Heartbreaking though!
