OP here, thanks for all the input.>>2510376
Don't have a huge apartment, but I think it's big enough for a pupper to feel comfortable in. Got a small patch of grass outside too, and the neighboring area is a nice forested area.>>2510442
I'm not really interested in that. I've had dogs throughout my whole life basically, this is the first time I haven't had a dog where I lived.>>2510449
I'll talk to him about it, guess I could bring it up. I'll pay any extra costs if necessary to get a dog>>2510474
Don't need to fake depression, but I'm not sure if that's the way I should go about getting a dog.>>2510718
Live in Norway, but yes, I agree that he has the right to deny me. The laws here are pretty strict about landlords kicking out tenants without a really, really good reason, but since it says in the contract that house pets aren't allowed, I can't really try to sneak my way around that. Only hope is to ask him about it and see if he'll bend.
I'm gonna wait until after Christmas to ask him about it. I will have had lived here for 6 months then, and I get a chance to talk face to face with him about it, since he has to drop by and check our electricity meter.
Not gonna hold my breath, but still hoping I'll be able to convince him. If I have to pay a higher rent, or do some sort of compromise, I'd be more than willing to do that
