So first I went to the mail-office. For some reason the summer swap box returned, it as completely torn up. I re-packed everything and brought it back. I tied Indra up outside the building because I was told that by American law, not pet is allowed in the mail-room except for seeing eyes or service dogs to be.
She whined. Oh my god she was so heartbroken that I left her and she caught the attention of a lot of people and they were standing all around her, pitying that poor puppy that was left alone by her owner. I just wished that people, who don’t know the dog, would stay away. Even though she is a puppy, by petting her, they are encouraging her in what she is doing, which in this case was whining. Plus, I don’t like strangers to pet my dogs while I am not there and it is just common sense not to go to a dog that is tied up and that you don’t know, because if something happens it’s ALWAYS the dogs fault.
Afterwards we went over to housing. The downstairs floor is being re-build and workers were tearing things up, using loud machines that she’s never seen before. She handled the situation perfectly. That girl has some sound nerves.
We went upstairs into the lobby and talked to the information desk. I told him that I am here to extend the exception of policy for our dogs and all he heard was “three dogs”.
He laughed at me. Like it was the craziest thing in the world to try and get an exception. I told him like three times that we already have one and was about to get mad because I don’t like being laughed at the way he did. Even if it was impossible to get one, as a customer, I want to be treated with respect.
Indra was petted by some girl that’s been waiting for her parents. Than the lady came outside to talk to me. She adored the puppy and went back to look for our exception. First they couldn’t find it and than she said that we’d have to turn in a new application because we have big dogs (Shepherds are medium sized, not giants). I asked how what the chances are and she said that since it’s only until November the “higher up” wouldn’t make a big fuzz about it, so our chances are good to get it approved.
By that time some of her co-workers came out, adoring the puppy and than they started talking about their own dogs comparing them to Indra.
Anyhow, hubby has to write up a new memo, get it signed by the Commander, turn it in and most likely it’ll get approved (hopefully).
I really don’t want to move any of them out of the house.
Yes, it would be easier to keep this place clean, but they are a pack and I don’t want to break it up. Especially since Zenzy has warmed up to Indra and is now starting accept her.
