Advice Needed please
« on: September 18, 2012, 08:35:01 AM »
2 weeks ago we where served with an eviction notice because the house we live if is no longer safe for us to use, we have to be out by the end of October
The problem we are having is that we cant find any properties within our area that will take dogs and accept housing benefits without a guarentor so we are stuck.
My husbands mum said that we could stay will her until we find somewhere BUT we can not take the dog....

So I dont know what to do because I dont want to give up Stan but we are running out of time  :(

You should go to your council - they will house you, and most council properties take dogs.

the council wont help, they said (and I quote) "Being homeless is no longer a requirement for housing"

We have managed to come to an arrangement with my mother in law though which is good. She said we can all stay there as long as we keep on top of Stans fur so this will mean being professionally groomed at least every month probley. Will be costly but at least we will all be together :)

Do not resent growing old.
Many are denied the privilege
If your dog thinks you're the best, don't seek a second opinion

I can but I cant get all the loose coat out, I can give him a really good brush and then the next day he will look like hes never been touched, dont know why his coat maulting is so wierd, never used to be.
We came to the compromise of having him profesionally groomed so that they cant complain and then tell us to get out or get rid of him

I hope this turns out good for you, really i do. Sending happy good vibes up your way.

Btw... My Oscar used to shed like that until i changed his food. Since he hardly sheds at all. Seriously, he went from shedding like crazy and mire than Diesel and Wodan together to as good as nothing.  (but i don't know if this would work for Stantheman as Oscar is a cat  :-\ )
He is your friend, partner, defender, and your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Isn't there a shedding brush/comb you can get??


Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it,
Just pee on it and walk away
