Indra visited Housing

Since our exception of policy to keep all three dogs runs out at August first I wanted to make one last stand and paid them a visit with Indra. I figured that either they are going to kick us out or we can impress them with a well behaved puppy and win their hearts over puppy breath. Okay, she’s not exactly a puppy anymore but she still has the puppy face and can be the most adorable clumsy girl ever (as long as she doesn’t obsess over the Kong and chases other dogs underneath the table because she doesn’t want to share it…).

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.

  1. I, too, have been treated like dirt by some guy in housing… I wonder if it was the same guy?!

    I have my fingers crossed for you that you'll get the exception extended to November!

    I laughed a little at German Shepherds being referred to as big dogs… perhaps they've not met the Bernese Mountain Dog that's somewhere on MTV? Now THAT is a big dog!

  4. Thank you, I hope so too and yes he was the most disrespectful person I have come across in housing. It's the guy at the reception desk. I will never understand how and why they treat their customers so shitty, maybe because we depend on them. They know we have no choice but to go through them.

    You mean Jodel. He is biiig and the Shepherds seem to be tiny in comparison. I don't know how much weight that dog has but Yukon has 79 lbs so Jodel has got to be over a 100 pounds unless 80 percent of that dog is fur LOL.

    That dog can drag almost anyone all over the place. He's got more power than all three of mine together.
