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.
