My house is full of dog houses
Fullerton, California (CNN) My house isn’t full of dogs.
In fact, my home is filled with more than just dogs.
My father-in-law lives in a different house, and the neighbors’ dog house is on his property, as well.
The house is a collection of two-story, three-bedroom bungalows that are mostly empty.
But there are still two dogs on the property.
The dogs live in a tiny dog-house on the same block.
They have two owners, one of whom has had them since he was a boy.
“We have two dogs, and it’s really weird,” said Lisa Rizzuto, who lives across the street from my home.
“It’s not like they are in our yard.
They are out on our property.
I have never seen dogs anywhere on the street.”
Rizzuto and I live on a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of Fullerton.
She is the one who moved in to take over the family’s two houses after her husband passed away in 2010.
Rizzato said the family has no history of dog-related trouble, and their dog has never attacked anyone.
“The last time we went out there to visit my mother-in of about seven years ago, we had a dog who had come over to us and it was just a little bit territorial, and I guess it wanted to fight with him,” she said.
The Rizzos have two young children, ages 9 and 12.
Their home is located in a residential neighborhood.
“My house is kind of a little crazy, but the kids enjoy it.
The dogs enjoy the little things,” Rizzano said.
She said that’s because there are so many dog-friendly places to visit in the area.
“You can come here, go to a zoo, go on a boat ride, go get a haircut, go have a meal with your dog,” she added.
Rizzano and her husband have no plans to make a permanent change to their house.
They’re just happy to be part of the neighborhood and the community.
“It’s really cool that there’s so many places to go to, it’s just nice to live here,” she explained.
“People are coming over here, visiting, and they see us as neighbors,” she continued.
“That makes it really cool.”
Ritzuto said she and her son are not planning on moving anytime soon, but will probably stay in the neighborhood for a few years.
