The other afternoon I went over to let our neighbor Brad’s dogs out for him, but he’s always doing stuff for myself and others all the time and I thought that this time, I would try to do something nice for him.
I knew that he was going to have to work extra late the other night and so I told him that I would go over to his apartment to let his more than 2 dogs out for him.
They were in their crates and I felt sorry for them because all they wanted to do was go outside and play! I told him that I would go and let them out since he was stuck at work. I had no idea what I was in for when I went over to his house, though! It was undoubtedly frosty outside that afternoon and so I expected the heating plan to be running when I went into the house. However, when I went into the house, the temperature inside was chilly. I even felt terrible for the dogs because the indoor air quality was so bad. I wondered why the oil furnace wasn’t running in the apartment when the temperature inside was so cold. I thought that it felt undoubtedly gross inside of the apartment however I wasn’t sure why. I went over to check the heating vents in the kitchen over where the dog crates were. That’s when I saw what the concern absolutely was! The heating vents were completely chock full of dog hair. There was no way that any air from the ventilation ducts were getting through that to heat the rooms in the house. I don’t suppose how Brad and his dogs were even living there.
