More backgrounds from Marta Wapiennik combined with my graphic novel. Again thank you Marta.

OK. This is why I never wanted to own a Co-Op. Too many rules and too many spoiled brats. The entitlement issue always got to me when someone owns property, especially in a Co-Op situation:

Dog DNA testing. I would like to see these people survive the neighborhood I live in. Mostly Pit Bulls. If there is something in my dog’s ancestry that says Pit Bull or German Shepherd, I get kicked out of the building. Most rescues are mixed breeds. Whatever happened to saving an animal? I can see if an owner is not being responsible but this is really weird.

I happen to be a great fan of signage.
