Moving from house to apt
Hi all. I am moving into an apartment for the first time ever. I have always owned a home and never had to share walls and floors with others. I found a great apartment and I am really looking forward to simplifying my life BUT I am so concerned about the noise around me. More specifically, my dog.
Now, I must make you aware that I treat my dog like my son and I am so happy I found a place that accepts pets. But he sometimes cries - especially when he gets scared with me not around - and it can be somewhat loud. He is a Cocker Spaniel and they are known for their bouts with tears! He is such a sweetheart but I know he is going to be a bit freaked because we will be living in a new place and in a new city (moving from Louisville, KY to Tucson, AZ). I am so afraid that I will have neighbors that will complain about him crying and there is nothing I can do about it.
My first thought was to "bribe" them at move in. I like meeting neighbors anyway and I was thinking about making baskets of homemade bread or cookies to give to them.
What are your thoughts? And, while we are at it, any other advice or foresight you have would be much appreciated. This is all so new to me!!
