Responding to Mark Ottenberg's commets on pets: >Gee, I don't see what right there is for anyone to limit / restrict anyone >else's pets. [cut] ... why should you care ... In the common house is an >arguable point [cut] but in a PRIVATE home??? -- Mark ==>> IMO, "in" is the *key* word there, Mark. It's when the pets go *outdoors* that they dig, poop, pee on trees, trample, bark, chase birds, jump up, and do whatever else comes naturally. In Commonweal, we plan clustered housing; so yards will be small, and/or adjacent. I love animals, but have my doubts about how Commonweal will find a satisfactory pet guideline, when our time comes. I love gardens,grass, birds, trees, and quiet, too. *Indoor* pets don't threaten these, but outdoor dogs and cats do. A friend uses an electronic collar on her dog. This, to me, is very considerate and it lets the dog run and play. Yes, the dog got *one* jolt; but immediately learned. It's debatable, but I can live with that, if it means the person can own a dog. (Initial investment for "fence," too). Christina Hilliard Commonweal Cohousing
