Third dog approved after city considers appeal

She doesn’t have a third dog yet, but Tosha Moen will soon, and with the city’s blessing.

Moen was at council on Feb. 19 to ask for permission to purchase a third dog, one more than allowed under city bylaws.

It’s the second time the Elm Avenue resident has comeforward with the request.

Last year, council denied her request for a three-dog variance but, on appeal, agreed to put Moen’s request out to the public.

Moen said she wants a third dog because her oldest animal’s health is starting to fail and she feels unsafe hiking and skiing in the backcountry.

Council passed the variance without discussion.
