[personal profile] two_star and I broke up this weekend. We are still friends, and feel free to invite us both to events that you think we'd both like. Of course, feel free to invite only one of us to events that you think only one of us would like, and to invite neither of us to events that we'd both hate.

Also, my new goal is to make enough money to move someplace where I can get a dog. Dogs are fuzzy. I probably want a Black and Tan Coonhound, so I need to make enough money to live someplace appropriate for a big dog. Am tempted to move to a rural area in the south to accomplish this, except that I'd hate the weather there and also I doubt that my neighbors would be thrilled to see a queer pagan vegetarian move in next door no matter how many hound dogs I had. Perhaps I should look into fishing villages in Alaska again, although then I'd get a different kind of dog since that'd be a cruel place to ship a hound but a great place to have a local husky-type.

You might consider Austin, Texas. Folks are pretty accepting there, but it's also a dog-lover's place. In fact I know a pagan with big dogs who lives there.

If Alaska is anything like Whitehorse, it'd be easy and wonderful to be a well-paid, employed, queer pagan vegetarian dog owner middle school teacher who lived on a reasonably sized piece of land just outside of town. I've only ever been to Haines and Skagway but Haines is such a great place and we would visit you all the time if you lived there.

You can move to Montana.

In Canada, it seems that most cities in the East are more tolerant of dogs and other pets than the ones in the West. Having lived in Winnipeg, Ottawa and Vancouver (and talked to friends who lived in Toronto), I find this change in attitude towards pets seems to be pretty general.

I suspect that this also holds in the U.S. However, I gather you may not have friends out East other than me -- especially on the U.S. side. While the Canadian CBSA doesn't seem to be as paranoid and scary as the U.S. ICE, it's still a pain in the neck to try and cross the border even semi-permanently. If you can, ask [ profile] pondside for more details about border headaches from a [specifically Canadian] perspective.
