No Dogs Allowed. Keep off the Grass. No Pets.
We must follow certain rules to be responsible pet parents, but not all of them are convenient or even reasonable. And some are just plain wacky.

How about this one–a luxury apartment building in New York City allows dogs (under 15 pounds) BUT requires that residents carry their dogs across the lobby.

According to the New York Post, management at Hawthorn Park apartments, on the Upper West Side, where a 1-bedroom unit goes for about $5,000/month, doesn’t allow dog paws to touch the shiny clean marble floors.

Not only that, but renters and their dogs are banned from the regular elevators and must use the service elevators to access their apartments.

If I were paying that much for my rent, I’d expect a red carpet across the lobby for my pooch.

How about you? Which pet-related rules do you dislike? Do you find some rules unfair, unreasonable, or even wacky?

“MOM! We don’t have any marble floors, can we come inside?”
