My dogs ARE welcome..........are you?????? 1.The dogs live here. You don't. 2.If you don't want dog hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. 3.Yes,they have some disgusting habits. So do I,and so do you. What's your point? 4.OF COURSE they smell like dogs. 5.I like them a lot better than I like some people. 6.To you they are dogs. To me they are adopted sons and daughters who are short, hairy, walks on all fours. I have no problem with any of these things. 7.Dogs are better than kids. They eat less, don't ask for money all the time, are easier to train, usually come when called, never drive your car, don't hang out with drug-using friends, don't smoke or drink, don't worry about whether they have the latest fashions, don't wear your clothes, don't need a gazillion dollars for college, and if they get pregnant you can sell the pups. 8.The same applies for the cats, except they will ignore you ... until you're asleep.
I can imagine the reaction you get with the goats.....LOL. But it is your home and your option. Noone should have anything to say about how we live in our own home. If they dont like goats, dogs, cats, lizards, rats, snakes, etc then dont come over!!!! I am not asking my pets or kids to hide out for anyone.

I agree!! Even though our 2 dogs, especially the puppy, can be a bit crazy, I'd rather have them around the house!! I am forever vacuming the couches!! 2 Goldens create a lot of shedded hair!! My in-laws don't understand why we would want to have pets around. They smell, they are dirty, they are a responsibility and they cost a lot to feed. Well, so are my 4 children and I'm not getting rid of them either!!!
Me too. I get a lot of comments on the dog hair because my golden sheds a lot. Of course it is so hot here, my dogs shed a lot. I am forever getting comments about the pet hair and have even had someone say of our 5 month of chi, she stinks, she smells like a dog. Well......she does smell like a dog, she is one, but she doesn't stink. What do people expect? They are idiots. I think I will make a poster on some nice bright paper that says that. Hope you don't mind, I think it's great.
