we adopt a dog from the humane society.

they give us a list of places where dogs are licensed. they ask if we live in ypsilanti or ypsilanti township. i say our address is ypsilanti, but i think technically we live in pittsfield township. they tell us to go to the treasurer in ypsilanti city hall.

i go to ypsi city hall. they're out to lunch. i go home, come back later. they need a rabies vaccination certificate, all i have is two copies of his health records which show he got a rabies vaccination. but i need a certificate. she asks where i live. she tells me i need to go to the ypsilanti township office.

i take him to the vet. i ask them if they can get me a rabies certificate. they say they can. but then i forget, and they forget. a few days later, i realize i still don't have one.

i call the humane society. they tell me they gave me a copy of the certificate when we adopted him (they didn't), but they'll mail me an extra copy.

i get the copy. i go to the ypsilanti township office. she says she'll type it up for me. finally we're getting somewhere. but she asks which side of golfside road we live on. i say the westside. that means we live in pittsfield township. i have to go to the county office in ann arbor.

she tells me i can get the license on-line, though. i go to the website. they are no longer selling 2010 licenses, and don't start selling 2011 licenses until november 16th.

uggggggggh. as if the dog wasn't difficult enough!
