    I'm so exhausted from it....the plumbers came out and cut holes in the drywall and couldn't find the pipes (some plumbers...I don't know where my landlord found these people) then finally found them and their suggestion was to put a space heater in the wall to try to warm them up...except the pipes didn't feel very cold so the freeze or break is likely underground...so they might have to dig up part of the courtyard...with no real timeframe.

    Luckily our gym is nearby so we can shower there and there are also showers at my office. Our landlords said they'd pay for meals we have to order out and we can send out laundry out, but I'm super allergic to scented detergents so that won't work.

    They offered to put us in a hotel also, but the one they reserved doesn't allow dogs so we'd have to get special permission for Ruckus to be there, it's not close to anything, and we'd have to pack up everything and drive over. I'm going to talk to them about a different hotel maybe closer to my office or closer to our house so we can easily retrieve things. I'm also worried about leaving Ruckus alone in a hotel room. I would hate for someone to come in to clean not realizing he's there and get scared...and I'm always paranoid someone will steal him...

    Sorry to ramble, but ugh this is no fun.

    Oh man… what a PITA!!! I'm so so sorry… I can't believe they couldn't find the pipes, and suggested a space heater in the walls?!! Isn't that a fire hazard?!! Sounds like it might be time to find a new place… and please rant away!!!

    Easier said than done. Finding a great place in DC is like the hunger games. Also, we'd have to pack up and leave and we just a have so much furniture and stuff and I shudder to think about moving -- especially since we moved to this place in June. We love the space and the location. It's also awesome because it has a courtyard for Ruckus. Just finding a place that allows big dogs in DC is hard enough. Our landlords have been trying to fix it, we're just hoping it happens in the next few days. Otherwise we might have to deal with the hotel.

    I hope they get things fixed quickly, how about staying a friend or something? I totally agree with you on the hotel thing. I would be scared to leave him too, you can't trust anyone these days.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    If you're gonna wind up staying in a hotel, maybe you or your boyfriend can take your vacation now. This way, Ruckus wouldn't be alone.

    If Ruckus needs a temporary babysitter, I'm trying to convince my wife Taco needs a friend, but she doesn't think we can handle two, lol. She's probably right.
    Taco does need a friend, besides these guys are like potato chips and you know the rest. lol Nice pic!!

    I hope the pipe situation is coming along better than before!...Just wanted to suggest that IF you end up staying in a hotel you could either drop Ruckus off at your house while you're at work so he is in familiar surroundings when he is alone. It would just be a matter of picking him up and dropping him off on your way to and from work. OR if you wanted him to stay in the hotel while you are away, you could put him in his crate and lock it. Trust NO ONE! haha Also, some hotels have a pet policy that the animal cannot be free in the room unless the owner is present.

    Just some possibilities. Sorry that you guys are living this way!!!
