Does this bother you? I don't understand why people think this is ok!
The other day we had family over for a big potluck dinner. My DH's grandmother is very elderly, she HATES house pets, and she is very prone to falling. All these factors in mind, I decided to put my big dog outside (where he will stay put) and my little dog shut away from the guests (he will NOT stay in the yard naughty pup). One of DH's aunt's asked to use the restroom, we have three. I told her she can go upstairs to either of the bathrooms up there, or she can use the downstairs one, but that my dog is in there and he will be excited to see a visitor. She goes into the room with the dog. The entire time she is in there, we can hear her yelling at my little prince and when she comes back out she says , "Stupid stinky dog".
This was three days ago and I am still really upset over it! I put my pets away for the comfort of others and offered alternatives if someone didn't want to see them. It was her decision to go in where he was.
For the record he is 14 pounds and was probably jumping up on her. And yes, he is stinky, but no one is allowed to call him that but me
