$500 LARGE DOGS!!!

Apartment hunting is difficult enough, but add a pet into the mix and you’d be lucky to find a place that doesn’t look like it already has its own infestation of “pets”.  However, as pets become a bigger part of the family, replacing children (TLC’s new documentary “My Monkey Baby” anyone?) and determining daily life choices, apartment buildings are taking notice. 

Suddenly, it seems like most buildings have no problem accepting tenants with certain types of animals – along with a $250 non-refundable deposit, of course.  So the question now is how to inform prospects that yes, you can live here without sending Fluffy to the pound!  One popular apartment search tool, Craigslist, has added the ability to indicate whether cats and/or dogs are allowed with a “purrr” or a “wooof”.  But many managers feel the need to market this amenity with a little more oomph:

Large Dogs

(As see on Craigslist – Houston, TX.  Yeehaw, y’all!)

Wow!  $500 large dogs welcome!!!  Oh, but wait… I got mine from PAWS.  Does that count?  I only paid $50 for my mutt, unless you include future vet bills.  And I’m not sure I would say she’s a very large dog, medium-sized at best.  Hmmm…  I guess maybe I should check out another building that’s open to dogs of different sizes:

Small Dogs

Cats, any dogs, AND small dogs under 25lbs!  I don’t think it gets better than that, even if it’s a bit redundant.  Unless small dogs are actually a breed separate from the category “Dogs (any)”… 

You know, that’s starting to make sense.  I mean, if small dogs are a pet category all their own, then that would certainly explain this:


(Apologies to those of you who ate before looking at this.)

What did your building do to recruit you and Fido?  Send a picture of funny, if not grammatically correct, pet-related apartment marketing to blog@beyondwineandcheese.com!
