On Woman Sentenced to Probation for DUI Crash That Broke Son's Neck

I think people are willing to extend their hearts to animals and adopt; the problem is not with the people so much as it is with the landlords of Santa Barbara. Most owners have dogs already as they have the freedom to do so. Most rentals here in Santa Barbara do not allow any pets whatsoever, and if they do, they are few and far between. Santa Barbara is supposed to be a so called pet-loving community, but reality shows that most landlords here are not open to renting to people who have even a small pet. If one or two apartments per building were put aside for people with pets, then maybe these caged up dogs would have a chance to have a home, but I think that would be too much to ask of Santa Barbara landlords, believe me.

Yes, love the outdoor setting in front of the firepit to have a drink; however, don't be fooled by the so-called 2 for 1 drink special. They fill the glass to the brim with ice and then they put no alcohol in the drink, so essentially you are just getting one drink, but everyone is convinced they are getting two drinks......save yourself the time and go to Joe's Cafe. One drink over there is much more worth it. We don't go there for drinks anymore. They're a ripoff!!

Wouldn't it be helpful to post an address?
Sure we can look it up in the phonebook, but
if you're posting an article about something and
the business, doesn't it make sense? Just a
thought. Not everyone knows exactly where
this is.

It's great to see that Santa Barbara cares for loving pets that really need homes, but if you are so fortunate as to be able to afford and have one of these loving pets, you will find that most landlords here in the city do not allow dogs; if they do, they want them to be 25 pounds and under which has made it very hard for a person like myself to find a good rental because I have an aussie/border collie mix who is about 60 pounds--which, by the way, she is a sweetheart. Good luck if you adopt one and one day want to move because most landlords will rent to the person that doesn't have a dog.

You are hilarious, "Maximum". Thank you for your suggestions! and also thanks to those of you who relate to what I have gone through in just posting your thoughts and feelings about this. We hold dog clinics for the homeless because this seems to be a city that "cares" for animals. Indeed, what is the reality here? As a city on the whole, we are not very open to renting to animal owners.

On Pets are Victims of Foreclosed Homes

More and more people are having to move out of their homes due to foreclosures and personal circumstances, I being one of them. Most landlords in Santa Barbara do not accept pets, and if they do it's dogs 25 pounds and smaller or maybe a cat. For responsible pet owners as myself, it's hard to find an affordable rental that will accept a dog like mine. I have a beautiful border collie/aussie mix, and she's 7 years old, but most places I look to rent won't even consider renting to me because she is about 60 pounds. The homes that do accept pets are usually high rentals. She's a non-barker and very sweet with people and other animals. While I don't blame landlords for wanting people to respect and take care of their property, there are people out there who are clean, responsible and care for their pets. With the probability that we might have to move in the near future, I don't know where I'm going to find a place that will accept our dog because choices for something affordable to live that will accept a dog like her is pretty scarce around Santa Barbara.

It's sad that we can use a person's past to manipulate a situation
when we want to. I suppose we can do that to probably 90% of
the population--you know, just say "well, remember what you did
in your past?' and then just wave it around like blackmail till you
get your way. There is no good feeling about the crime and what
happened. I only know that God's blood is enough to cover a
person with love and forgiveness if he is truly repentant. Those
of us who have come out of sin are truly thankful to be able to
be forgiven of Him and start over clean in our hearts, and that's what I think happened here. To know the redemptive power of
the blood is not understood by the typical person--only to those
who have come out of much troubles in the world. Thank God
for His love and grace once again. He can truly change a person.
