    I am shocked at this - what are people thinking? I have a barn with horse stalls and a garage and my own dogs' kennels. I think if they brought a dog that wasn't invited I would require - not ask, but tell - them that the dog stayed in one of those 3 places, their choice, but it wouldn't be running through my house and chasing my animals!

    I guess we've been lucky. Our friends don't abuse the privilege. There was only one time we've had a dog on the property uninvited, and that was our former minister...and after we told him that our horses would chase and kick the dog, he basically kept him on the leash or in the car.

    Just because you love animals and your husband's a vet doesn't mean that you want to live amongst pee and poop in your house, especially thoughtless people's pet's stuff. Good grief....

    As far as the dog sitting, just say no. Tell her that your household insurance doesn't cover a dog-sitting business in your home, and if something happened, yada yada. This person has no right to expect that!

    They do take very good care of their dog, all vaccinations, plenty of love and they walk it several times a day, but it is always on a leash.

    I must say I am sure I brought some of this on myself because I like the dog to be able to run, but sometimes it gets taken advantage of. She is better about bringing the dog out than she used to be, but it could be better.

    I have left the dog outside in the garage with my dogs and it drove me crazy barking to come in.

    And it was her husband that fed the dog from the table. And I am not too fond of him for leaving her a few years ago, so anything he does I don't like.

    Bringing dogs to someone's place is just bad etiquette!!!!

    If for some reason I have to stop by someones place(which I always call first, I never stop by unannounced) and I have the dogs with me, they stay on the back of the truck. Nor would I ever think of bringing them into their house.

    Since your husband is a vet can you board the dog there? Just let her know after she has booked her trip that you'll be busy then and it'd be better to keep her there?

    Great idea - insured, no muss, no fuss. You could even give her a 20% discount on the boarding fee!

    That is just so rude,can't imagine what these people are thinking. I would post some rules, & say where some boarding is available,maybe at your husband's office? We had a neighbpors' (mean) dog over here a couple of nights ago, & I'm not happy about that,they also kcome oudt on the road & chase cars. Don't know what they might do w/a horse & rider going by-not too eager to find out, either.
