STOMPer Bernard sent in a video about an old man dying of cancer who is forced to give one of his two dogs away due to his neighbours' complaints. He feels that HDB should let the man have his last wish -- to live with his two dogs.
"The man in the video, known as Mr Tan, has been diagnosed with lung cancer and his only companions are his two Schnauzers but each HDB flat can only keep one toy breed dog, so he has been trying to stay under the radar.
"However, his foreign neighbours kept making groundless complaints about his dogs being a nuisance. Now he is forced to send one of his dogs away.
"Although it is against the law to have two dogs but I feel that in circumstances like this, concessions have to be given.
"I sincerely hope Mr Tan will be given a chance to live out his days with his two dogs."
STOMPers Sharon and Ester also commented on the dying man's plight.
"I came across this article and felt that this is not fair for the dying man.
"HDB would rather want a person who may have the possibility of death to give away his dog than leave the dog in a home filled with love.
"What has Singapore and our society become? Tearing families apart and only listening to one side of the story?
"Please be flexible. You are only listening to one side of the story and not even helping our fellow Singaporeans.
"You should learn to look at each case individually and not just follow your rules and regulations!"
"How compassionate are we? A dying old man with lung cancer only wants to spend his last days with his two beloved dogs.
"But this is not allowed? He may only have another six more months to live.
"Can't the law be more lenient towards a dying old man? How much stress is this society giving to this poor old man?"
