Here is a compromise,,,,,,allow the pets, but have an upcharge on the maintenance fees for the pet owners, to cover the additional expence of keeping down the smell of animal waste in the dumpsters, burned grass and calls to the police of disturbing the peace when these caring folks leave Fido on the patio all day while they are out at the clubhouse.

Ayn, I'm ashamed. Your proposals sound blatantly collective to me. Where's your sense of individualism? Your not turning soft while napping six feet under, are you?

Our group, Traveling Petowners of America is a co-sponsor of the Pets in Condos group petition. This is still a country that professes to offer life, liberty and property. I've spent more than 25 years in the real estate industry and no of no other situation whereby a person holds fee simple title to a piece of real property and is restrict from enjoyment of that property. If I own it and pay taxes on it, as long as what I do is not illegal, no one should have the right to tell me what I can and cannot do in my home.

When did the ground rules change? What financial renumeration is offered to people in exchange for their giving up the right to have legal enjoyment of their property?

This is ridiculous.

I feel all people should be allowed to have a pet, but certain restrictions should apply. Not only seeing eye dogs, animals that assist in daily life, but small pets that can be easy to handle. Small birds such as parakeets, love birds or canaries, dogs under 15 pounds, and cats. Most seniors would be more than willing to pick up dog droppings for the enjoyment and love that pet can give.

John, is that you?

I chose to live in a place with rules. Rules I read, understood and agreed to when I purchased my condo. Having all these years behind me, I have matured and begun to realize that compromise is an option.

Keep seeking if you must. I am too tired......

Congratulations on your willingness to compromise.....but that which you foresee need NOT be the case IF the condominium implements strict "rules" (which, of course, all condos LOVE to do) which govern the conduct of pets and the responsibilities of their owners. Any pet owner who fails to abide by reasonable rules regarding these animals and their behavior/care shall be called to account by the Board, and any legal fees incurred by the Board in forcing the unit owner to comply shall be borne BY THE OWNER. Surely, this reasonable compromise is something that all could live with in peace and harmonious living....which is as it should be.

It is a shame that the associations even make an issue of owning a cat. If the cat does not go out and doesn't make noise and it doesn't smel in the pet owners home, what business is it of the associations. Down with stupid rules that only annoy the people!

I AGREE WITH MAIDA

It was documented in a recent magazine article that Gary Poliakoff himself has a dog, three cats, and some turtles. Why? Does he get any solace from having his animals? Is there some new law in this country that says rich people get to have animals and the rest of us don't?

Pets extend and enrich the quality of life for their owners. A sound cure for depression.

IF A RULE IS ON THE BOOKS WHEN YOU MOVE IN RE: PETS IT SHOULD REMAIN IN EFFECT UNLESS THE MAJORITY RULE TO CHANGE THIS LAW. HOWEVER, IF NEW CONDOS ARE JUST STARTING LET THESE PEOPLE THAT WANT PETS BUY THERE AND LET THE OWNERS THAT DONT GO ELSEWHERE.

Do you think that Poliakoff lives in a condo?

When I buy a condo in an association which states that no pets are allowed, I have the right to expect that everyone in the association will abide by the rules. I have the expectation that the BOD will enforce the rules.
How about when the BOD fails to enforce the rules, a Unit Owner can 'fine' them.

Americans seem so entranced by the term 'law and order'-- but I guess that term only applies to the other guy.
Gotta beef? Litigate.
Wanna new law? Legislate
Gotta beef? Litigate

Funny the way litigate=legislate=litigate
Must be something in it for the lawyers.

And as for Ayn Rand, compromising on principles isn't something she advocated. Please stop using her name, it's hard enough getting people to understand what she stood for without specious misrepresentations.

After working for two years to get the board of directors to agree to put pet ownership up to a vote with 375 owners, the vote neither passed or failed due to not enough voters. However, there more voters opposed to the rules being changed. I live on the Galt Ocean Mile and am committed to trying to get these rules changed. Any suggestions or involvment of your groups or groups I can join is welcomed. [email protected]

what part of no hitlers, dictators, mental midgets and absoulute disgusting morons don't you understand. People hide their cats tucked away neatly and enjoy them in a no pet policy building. Selective enforecment x 8,000. Get rid of the people without souls and bring in the animals.

Do you pimp women and sell assault rifles too, or do you just stick to selling prescription drugs?
