When my landlord instituted a new no pets policy, I knew that I was going to find a new place to live. I have a small beagle, and there was no way I was going to get rid of her. I thought I would have been grandfathered in since I moved in when dogs were allowed, but it was not the case. I started looking that same day for other apartments in Tampa, and I was very careful to only look at the ones that allow pets. I sometimes work from home, but when I do have to go to work, I always leave my pup either at my parents’ house or with my sister.
I just don’t want him to be left alone during the day for hours at a time, so I decided to find an apartment that is closer to where they live too. The first complex I looked at was in Westchase, and I struck gold. Not only do they allow dogs, but they also have a dog park that is right there on the property. I always had to drive to a trail to walk my beagle before, so this was definitely a good sign.
I then looked at the apartments. I have always had a one room apartment, but I was impressed with the two bedroom units too. I figured if I got one of those, I could use the second bedroom as an office. That way, I could stay home even more if I could work comfortably there. There was not a single thing that I did not like, and I submitted my application that same day. It did not take long to hear back, and we are officially moving in next month. I have a feeling we are not going to miss our old place at all.
