Whenever I call the Heating and A/C business, the first thing they tell me is to put your pet away before the Heating and A/C tech arrives.
You would feel they would get sleepy of saying this, but it wasn’t so.
I didn’t have pets when I first moved into the house. I didn’t enjoy the reasons why you had to put your pets away. When my partner left, I purchased a dog for contractor and for security, then phoebe was part pitbull, even though he was afraid of his own shadow. I never thought of his as a dangerous creature, but everyone feel pitbulls were the devil’s spawn. My father told me creatures were the product of their owner, and he could never see Phoebe being mean. When I called the Heating and A/C contractor for service on my air conditioner unit, I again got the warning about putting my pets away. I thanked her, and didn’t feel about Phoebe, then he was strolling the home when the Heating and A/C professional arrived. He took one look at Phoebe and blanched. He told me I had to put his away if I wanted the air conditioner unit repaired. I told him Phoebe would remain inside, and he didn’t need to come in the house. I would come outside and talk to him when the air conditioner unit was serviced. He looked at Phoebe and told me if he saw his at the door he was leaving. I couldn’t believe anyone would be so cowed by a puppy, but the Heating and A/C professional was acting like he was a wild creature.
