:dogbiggrin: ( 2nd try!) Hi Gang! I'm Justin ! I live in Chippewa Falls, WI & right now I'm looking forward to getting my new dog!

The landlord here is adamant about NO DOGS & refuses to even listen to any sort of reason - INCLUDING that she will be a "E.S.A." ! That's "Emotional Support Animal ! Google it! If your Doctor gives you a PRESCRIPTION - yes REALLY!. . for the Dog, NOBODY can say you can't have it! But, pick your fights carefully!
