Four Roommates Asked Their Neighbor If They Could Meet Her Dog. They Got A Letter Back From The Dog

December 18, 2019

Jack McCrossan and his three roommates were a little bummed when they found out their new landlord wouldn't allow them to have pets.

So, when they spotted a dog watching them from a neighbor's window, they decided to write a letter to the neighbor asking if they could walk their dog.

"Been saying we'd love a dog about the house but our landlord doesn't allow pets, so my housemate posted a letter to our neighbours asking if we could walk their dog every once and a while and the response was better than we could have ever hoped for," Jack McCrossan said.

The letter reads:

"The other day we noticed a four-legged friend looking at us out the window when we arrived home from work. He or She looked like the good-est boy/girl there is. If you ever need someone to walk him/her, we will gladly do so. If you ever get bored (we know you never will, but we can dream) we are more than happy to look after him/her. If you want to come over and bring him/her to brighten up our day, you are more than welcome. If you want to walk past our balcony windows so we can see him/her, please do.

We hope this doesn't come off too strong, but our landlord won't allow pets, and we've all grown up with animals. The adult life is a struggle without one."

They soon received a letter back addressed to "the boys" and stamped with a paw on the back.

"What a treat it was to receive your letter," began the letter written on behalf of the dog, Stevie Ticks.

The letter continued:

"On the subject of treats, I like them a LOT. Big ones and meaty ones and cheesy ones... oh sorry.. where was I?!

I am two years and 4 months old, and I am a Sheprador (Lab x GSD). I come from Cyprus originally but Chris and Sarah rescued me from a cage in the 'doggy hotel'.


You're right that I am the bestest-girl - how did you know?? I am very friendly and full of beans. I love meeting new people and it would be great if we could be friends. I must warn you that the price of my friendship is 5x ball throws a day and belly scritches whenever I demand them.

We here understand how hard it is to find pet friendly rentals - and life just isn't full without a dog is it - right?? I'd love to hang out whenever you fancy. Give my servant Chris a Whatsapp (---) and we can arrange a meet up!

Looking forward to mlemming you!

Stevie Ticks"

On December 15, the boys finally got to meet Stevie Ticks.

Stevie's owners are now planning on inviting the boys over for dinner and beers so they can all hang with Stevie on her turf.

"In a day and age where people don't really know or speak to their neighbors it was really nice for them to break down that barrier," Sarah told Buzzfeed News.
