Two dLife posts and a dog update. (Sorry, my rhyming abilities suck.)
First, the two dLife posts in question. You have to read the comments on the first to understand my ire in the second post.
And now on to the dog.
I spoke with the landlady on Monday. She said the neighbours have told her that they bring the dog out of the cellar at night, that it's only down there during the day, while they're at work. I know this is bullshit because I've been down in the cellar at all hours of the evening and night and the dog is always down there. They did go down there last night and clean the floor. I haven't looked thru the space in the wall recently because every time I go downstairs, someone from next door goes down, too.
Frankly, these people make me a little nervous. I have no reason for it, but they do go to extraordinary lengths to avoid us and I don't even know their names. I have to share a building with them and I don't want to create issues. I'm not going to make so many problems with the neighbours so that I feel uncomfortable in my own house. Also, when I spoke with the landlady, she sounded less than thrilled to hear from me.
I talked to the MSPCA again and they said there really is nothing they can do. The officer said that she could knock on their door and offer to re-home the dog, but the neighbours would know it was me complaining.
I don't know what to do. I'm sure some of you will be angry, but I can't disrupt my family's life over a dog. I can't piss off my landlady to the point that she asks us to move. I just can't. I can and will keep an eye on the dog and if I see that the dog is losing weight or that the floor is not kept clean or it appears that anything at all is wrong, I will report it again.
I don't like this situation one bit.
