Ok, that’s out of my system. I can write.
We have talked about our canine nextdoor neighbour. Her name was Bella, but we had a fondness for calling her Shitlip. Why? That apartment would stink really bad like animal urine. We were sure that either that dog was having accidents all the time, or they’d bought one of those doggie litter boxes so they wouldn’t have to take her for a walk, and it wasn’t holding in the smell. Either way, our end of the hall often smelled really nasty.
I was worried that I might get accused since I’m the one with the dog living in that part of the hall that people would see all the time…and those weren’t baseless worries. I ran into a woman who said “Your dog barks a lot when you’re not at home.” I had to explain to her that when I’m not at home, neither is the dog. We talked about the smell, and now, that woman has become a lot more friendly…I think because she realized that my dog wasn’t the one making the smell.
Well, 2 weeks ago, they moved out! One morning on the weekend, we heard a lot of banging that sounded like moving couches and things. As I took garbage down to the chute, we heard definite indicators that they were leaving.
And ever since they’ve been gone, our apartment building hall smells normal again! No more will I have to come down the hall holding my nose. I no longer have to open my door and get greeted by…that. It makes a huuuuuge difference.
Holy crap, have they ever been rennovating the hell out of that apartment. I hope it’s just because it’s been lived in for a while by the same people and needs a tune-up, not that they’re having to obliterate the evidence of Bella.
So yea! But I hope, wherever that dog’s going, they do a better job of preventing that horrible smell.
