My 12 year old golden retriever, Willie, is a well-mannered dog that never barks and is one of the nicest dogs someone will ever meet. In fact, he hasn't barked in ten years. In March 2012, my roommates and I called the BSHA explaining how good of a dog Willie is and they said it was okay for him to stay in 1350 Barkley Court even though he is over thirty pounds and is in violation of Article IX, Section 2 of the Declaration of Covenants. Within the first hour of moving in on August 5, 2012, the BSHA said that we had to get rid of Willie or they would take my landlord to court even though they cleared it, however they do not remember this. One of my roommates and I are going to school to become veterinarians, I grew up on a farm, and I am a responsible dog breeder/trainer back home. Therefore, my roommates and I know how to take care of this well mannered dog. Please help me in supporting my petition to allow my well mannered dog to stay in 1350 Barkley Court.
