When Mommy and Daddy moved into their condo, they wanted to check to see if there were any rules about DOGS before they decided to check out breeders. They KNEW they wanted a German Shepherd Dog, but they wanted to make sure that their weren't any rules about size or breed of dog BEFORE they looked for a dog.
They went to the Condo Association meeting and found that there was a rule: The dog couldn't be any more than 60 pounds.
They questioned this rule because in the condo development there are at least THREE big dogs that OBVIOUSLY are large breeds weighing more than 60 pounds.
Mommy and Daddy asked why there was a rule if people weren't following it! They also said that it seemed unfair to use weight to determine whether a dog would be a suitable pet.
The heads of the Condo Association agreed to discuss the matter. In the meantime they told Mommy and Daddy that they shouldn't worry about getting a dog of their choice.
They picked ME from the breeder (My Arthur!), and brought me home.
A few days ago when the Grandmas were at the condo playing with me, the mail carrier knocked on the door with a REGISTERED LETTER from the Condo Association. Grandma signed for it and put it on the counter in the kitchen for Mommy to open when she got home from work.
Mommy was very excited to see me and happy to see the Grandmas, but she was jumping up and down when she read THE LETTER!
The letter said that the NEW POLICY of the condo was to ELIMINATE any pound restriction for dogs from the condo rules!!!!
My Mommy and Daddy convinced the Condo Association that having a weight limit for dogs was just...not enforcable...unless they forced EVERY dog owner in the condo development to get an official weight measurement from their vet EVERY YEAR and turn it in to the Condo Association. This seemed unreasonable.
I am VERY PROUD of my Mommy and Daddy for fighting for me and all other large breed dogs (and even a few overly-plumpy MEDIUM-SIZED dogs, too!)
Here's to ALL DOGS everywhere! We won a small VICTORY this week!
Bye-Bye Bad Rule!
YEA! ! ! !
