That's kind of rude....you don't expect anyone to put up the kids in aseparate room,do you?
No, but sometimes I wish they would!

I love visiting friends and relatives who have dogs. I love dogs but can't have one for a few logistical reasons. Honestly, l prefer them to kids!

Our friendship ended about a year ago after being friends for many years. (nothing to do with the dog.. just a culmination of crap on her part and I ceased all contact with her)

I've gone to her apartment a few times and her dogs overrun everything. She has 3 Jack Russells and they are horrible! They jump all over you, try to lick you, poop everywhere. It's just gross. Her dogs are a direct reflection of HER (completely and utterly out of control). Yet, she thinks everyone loooooves her dogs. Wrong. Everyone that we know says her dogs are the most annoying things going and no one likes to go to her apartment because of the stench and the dogs jumping all over everybody.


I have cats. When someone comes over, all of them (except one) disappear. The one who stays out simply wants to know: who are you? why are you here? what's in the bag or box? what are you doing? Once his questions are answered, he disappears, too.

I am amazed at the parks how many people allow their leashed dogs to bound over to my leashed dog without permission...I had a foster dog once that wasn't friendly with other dogs and people
could not understand that they needed to keep their dogs away..I wasn't sure what the foster dog would do.
One lady insisted that her dog "just wanted to play & they would be fine" I had to yell at her finally to get her to keep her dog away..
I don't get why people think other people want their dog up in their face, jumping on them, and licking them. I find it repulsive.

People judge people for everything. So people like to bring their dog. If you don't want the dog to come and they decide not to come either - so what? Cut them a break, cut everyone a break! No one is perfect or even rational about all aspects of their lives.

Without reading the rest of the replies, here is my take:

Many people regard their dog as a member of the family.

They know if their dog goes with them, they will have a good time if for no other reason than that the dog is there.

The dog possibly serves as a buffer between them and the rest of the world, which they may not want to deal with.

People are more emotionally dependent on their pets now, than in the past.

Just a few of my theories....
