Yep - the Moving Excuse - I know it well. Interestingly enough, it sometimes becomes the "shifting" excuse. As in, when the individual returning the dog suddenly realizes that you think he/she is a complete dolt for using the moving excuse, he/she suddenly "develops" a child/spouse/parent who is "allergic to the dog so it wasn't working out anyway".


I don't have any tolerance for people who use the moving excuse. My girls (ie dogs) are non-negotiable.

WHY would you move somewhere or date someone that doesn't accept your animals? They would never ever break up with me or want to live somewhere else without me, so I'll show them the same courtesy.
