If I had the extra money (when I have the extra money) I would buy a big community building in the city, only for residents who have dogs. It would require a lot of upkeep. But remember, I'll have the extra money. It'll be worth it. It'll be the most desired place to live in the city...on the westside...by the beach.
The ad will say: DOGS ONLY. A minimum of one dog per unit is required. Will consider other pets. But must have at least one DOG over 25 lbs to secure move-in.
The community would have plenty of grass, sand, toys, balls, water bowls and wading pools for dogs only. The grounds would be maintained by dog-friendly people all day, every day.
Oh, I imagine there would be some legalities to consider. Everyone would be required to sign a waiver accepting full responsibility for their dog's actions - just like a child.
It would be exactly opposite as it is in most city areas. Dogs will be allowed everywhere. All doggy playgrounds, sandboxes, walkways, basketball courts and pools will be strictly off-limits for kids. Kids will only be allowed in "the kid park," a small, messy playground for kids where dogs can torment them and steal their toys.
The rental application would ask for a personal essay on why I want to live here, accompanied by letters of recommendation from friends and/or coworkers. No banking information would be required. No credit checks. No faceless applicants. All walks of life would be welcome. Rent would be based on what tenants could afford. Maybe some would pay in trade for grounds keeping, maintenance, community service, etc.
Yeah, well, that was fun. Now back to reality. Still searching ...
