She's the only thing that will keep me sane, but would it be possible to live somewhere with a yard? Are there little 2 bedroom houses for rent in Ithaca? For anyone that does have a dog, I'm assuming walking your dog at 7am in 10 degree weather isn't very pleasant? I'll have a car, so I guess I wouldn't mind living a little ways away from campus.
There are a few places I would look. Off the bat, my old apartment complex Summerhill Plaza allowed dogs up to a certain size. The apartment is around a 5 minute bus ride/drive to the law school. http://www.ithacahome.com/index.htm
The apartments/houses in collegetown aren't particularly dog friendly, but you might look into a house downtown.
When I was still in Ithaca and I was looking to sublet out my apartment, I had a lot of luck with this website. http://www.housingsolutions.com/
I think it's the most popular online apartment finding tool for Ithaca. Ithaca also has some physical rental offices that cater to students (mostly in collegetown) although I've never used them.
