Dear Amy: What is it about people and their dogs? I love my dog (and dogs in general) as much as the next person but I would never ask (or assume) I could bring my dog to anyone's house.
In the past week I have had one relative ask to bring their untrained puppy on her multiday visit to our home. At least she asked (I said no).
Another relative e-mailed and asked to stay the night (with a puppy).
I have a friend who always brings her dog to our house. This dog consistently pees and poops on my floor. She seems to think it's OK because she cleans up after it.
I think it's rude, unsanitary and gross.
I have a dog and would never impose on someone by bringing him to another house. I feel like if you have a dog and need to leave town you should make arrangements for it either with a housesitter or a kennel. Am I being too picky about this? — Pee-ved in LA
