It's not just them; no other company in the country will write me a policy either. This is for my residential rental houseboats that provide my income, and insurance is important.Wow! That really sucks how the insurance company dumped you, Mark.
Oh there are two of them! They look very happy together
Where I worked as an Apprentice Mechanic, we had a Basset Hound that would come wandering (more like 'trundling' if you know what I mean) in at 3:10 sharp, every day. We would be on the lookout for "Hank the Tank", just to make sure he didn't get run over. Then he'd make a wandering tour of the shop, getting pets, ear scratches, and a dog cookie or two... or three... or four... He was really smart, staying out of places that would have been dangerous to him. Saw him every day for years, then didn't see him for a while, then saw him again a time or two. We figured that he'd been getting out when some child in his family got home from school and kept leaving the gate open. I understand that Bassets are wanderers, and "Hank" was apparently no exception.I had a dog ... We found out when walking in an area of town we never used to go, suddenly the dog stuck his head into a butcher's and the staff all started greeting him and giving him cutoff bits.
They knew him well they said, comes by several times a week they said, so polite, never comes inside just waits at the door.
Free dog in the city; those days are gone.
