My dog is like my best friend. I’ve had him for almost 7 years, and I’ve loved every minute of it. I wouldn’t think of leaving my dog, which is why I had some problems when I was looking for an apartment. Most apartments don’t allow people to bring pets with them when they move in. I had to spend more time searching for an apartment that would let me keep my pet, while still giving me an affordable monthly rent. I learned about the Scotty Mountain apartments from http://scottmountainbythebrook.com while searching for various apartments. One thing that made me instantly favor the Scotty Mountain apartments was the fact that they allowed pets in their buildings. I decided that I had to see what the apartments looked like, and took my dog with me on a tour. I even had the dog help me select an apartment. I asked the dog to speak whenever he saw an apartment that he liked. He started barking when we got to one apartment. I signed a lease and moved into the apartment later that week. I’ve seen a lot of different pet owners at the apartment. Some have traditional pets like dogs and cats, but there are some people who have more unique pets. There are at least 6 people who own some kind of exotic bird in the apartments. One of these birds can speak English and Spanish phrases at random, thanks to it’s owner. Whenever I see it, I always offer it a cracker. One little girl down the hallway from my apartment has a hamster that she likes to keep in a ball when she goes out. She rolls the hamster as if she were walking a dog. I hope the hamster doesn’t get too dizzy while the girl is rolling it around.
